Pretty similar here. A bit less rain and a couple of degrees lower max and min. Notably only five days maxima were  >20C😧

August - Hobart, Tasmania

A wet month with a mean temperature anomaly of -0.1c below 1981-2010 or +0.3c above 1961-1990

Mean maximum:  13.6  ( -0.1 )

Mean minimum:  5.5  ( -0.2 )

Rainfall:  104mm ( average 54mm )

Rain days ( +1mm ) :  10/from 17

August started with a progressively colder outbreak moving in from southwest, with low level snow. The coldest airmass arrived on the 4th with a temperature close to 0c  at sealevel during the morning. Strong cold outbreaks typically come in from the southwest which is problematic for very low snow in Hobart, situated in the southeast. Unfortunately, not much luck with this one. Nevertheless, the day was very cold and cloudy, as low pressure formed just off the southeast coast making prospects interesting with a temperature of around 4-5c for most of the day. Rain moved in from mid-afternoon from the east with thunder, snow briefly settled at 200-300m ( hill suburbs ), but milder air filtered through off the coast pretty quickly and the snow level rose. The rain at night was steady and loud with 46mm and a big dump of snow to 600m by morning. High pressure between the 6th-12th brought frost and fog and this period included the lowest temperature ever recorded in Tasmania ( -14.2c ). Milder but cloudy between the 13th-20th as a broad area of low pressure approached from the north west. This was feeding some warmer air down off the continent and night temperatures were markedly higher. Some areas of showers  increasing to periods of rain as low pressure area formed off Tasmania's northeast coast. Another round of cold fronts from the southwest between the 21st-23rd, snow settling at 600-800m; the showers and snow heavier on the 22nd with a more favorable moisture laden southerly wind. A further front on the night of the 27th with snow settling at 800m, then springlike warmth and sunshine with high pressure centred over southeast Australia. The 30th was very windy and sunny ahead of a cold front then a few showers on the 31st with snow settling 700m

Extremes in daily temperature for August ( records since 1882 ) :

High max:  21.6.....30th   ( record 24.5 in 1977 )

Low max:  8.8.....5th   ( record 5.5 in 1974 )

High min:  11.8.....29th   ( record 15.0 in 2005 )

Low min:  0.4.....10th   ( record -1.8 in 1962 )

Perth, Scotland 

Very dull and wet 

August continued the run of very unsettled, cool and dull of recent August’s in spite of a very promising first 10 days where it was warm, dry and sunny for the most part. A massive thunderstorm overnight 11th/12th brought 60mm of rain and flooded many areas in Perth despite this the 12th was the warmest day of the month and most likely be the warmest day of the year. The second half was abysmal with plenty of dull, wet weather and very cool in the closing days. It was the coolest August since 2017 and dullest since 2011 inspite of nearly double the average rainfall it wasn’t as wet as 2019.
