My latest UK weather tracker shows that August was just like July in being an unremarkable month. This means the meteorological summer of 2017 has also been unremarkable just as I have been predicting for the last few years.
As always, the meteorological year starts in December which is why August appears as the 9th data point in the charts below. More information on the layout of the charts can be found in this post.
Last month I explained why July being unremarkable was in fact remarkable. I showed that the probability of all 6 indicators not being in either the upper or lower decile was roughly 1 in 4. August turned out to be an even more unremarkable month with no notable features. In fact August was about as average as it could be so a foreigner that spent August in the UK will have had a perfect illustration of a British summer!
