August 2017 was a little cooler overall than average although the mean maximum temperature of 20.8C was 0.1C above the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 13.1C, 0.6C below average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 24.2C on the 21st, and the lowest was 10.1C on the 6th. There were no air or ground frosts. The month was a little drier than normal with 50.5mm recorded in my accurate manual gauge (93% of the average). My less reliable automatic Davis gauge recorded 56.8mm! The wettest day was the 16th when 13.1mm was recorded in my manual gauge. More than 5mm was recorded on 3 days. Precipitation (>=0.2mm) was recorded on 15 days during the month.

Apologies for some issues with some of the graphs during August. This was due to some teething problems getting everything working under Windows 10. Hopefully it'll all run smoothly now.

The tables above show weather conditions recorded by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station sited in Teignmouth, South Devon. They are usually updated every 10 minutes. All times are Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so add one hour for British Summer Time (BST).

* Air temperature is measured 1.9m above ground level and the anemometer is just 2.2m above ground level in a NNW/SSE oriented valley. The wind direction is therefore heavily biased towards either the up or down valley direction and the anemometer is very sheltered from the prevailing westerly flow by higher ground directly upstream. The thermistor that measures grass tip temperature only has a resolution of 1 degree Fahrenheit and this has been automatically converted into Celcius to the nearest 0.1 degrees. A grass temperature of < 0°C indicates the occurrence of a ground frost (air temperature < 0°C indicates an air frost). The leaf wetness sensor monitors the level of surface moisture on foliage and hence the occurrence of dew, fog, drizzle, rain etc. Soil moisture is measured in centibars (cb) [0-10cb = saturated soil, 10-30cb = ground adequately wet, 30-100cb = ground needs irrigating to maintain maximum production, 100-200 cb = ground dry. ]. The strength of the sun's ultraviolet radiation is expressed as a UV index and was developed by the World Health Organization. As a guide 0-2 = low, 3-5 = medium, 6-7 = high, 8-10 = very high, 11+ = extreme. You can safely stay outside if UV is low, and it is recommended that you wear sunscreen if levels are moderate or higher, and seek shade if levels are high or above. In Teignmouth UV levels reach 7 in mid-summer and may reach 8 on exceptional days.
