Just saw this. Supposedly lowest August temperature for Anglia region was -4.5c in 1973. Anyone know anything about how this happened? Google is no help.

Oh yeah, misread. Thank you. Still very low for August.

Coming up to the 50 year anniversary of the coldest UK August temperature of -4.5C in Lagganlia, Cairngorms, night of the 21st.

Interesting to also note the contrast with the heat a week prior. 32.1C in Southampton, which I believe was the warmest temperature of that whole year. 26.9C also in Lagganlia.
