    There was an amazing temperature drop at the end of August 1869.

    Leicester recorded a maximum of 35C on the 28th and a minimum of -0.5C on 31st.

    I'm sceptical about those readings but Skipton recorded 32.8C on the 29th and -1.1C on the 31st

    So it would seem that it went from intense late summer heat to early winter morning chill within a couple of days. Must have been shock for agriculturalists bring in the harvest!

    Reports say that the wind swung into the NE and this brought cloud but nor rain. It could be similiar to what happen on the 30th June 1995 when there was a remarkable drop in temperature during that afternoon and evening.

    What makes this more remarkable is that temperatures of 30C were being recorded and a couple of days later, an air frost was observed.

    Similar thing happened when I lived in Calgary in August 2012..the temperature dropped from 30c to 12c in the space of 30 mins or so as a cold front swept through..but the weather stayed dry and sunny throughout.
