      Am I first?

     

      Starting quite warm and quickly developing into a month with protracted warm or very warm even hot spells, with temperatures in the mid to high 30.Cs and 39.C will be reached at some point in the month. 

        So I'm going to slap a straight CET of 20.0.C on this although I feel this will be the prelude to an August completely off the charts which will go even higher!

       Dryish overall but what rain falls will mostly come from thunderstorms at 44mm.

    I’m expecting a mixed month with some cool and unsettled spells and one or two heat spikes. 
     

    Therefore I’m predicting 17.0°C and 80 mm.
