I'm a man of my word - £5.00 token for the nearest guess.
With £5 carried over to winter.

But with a July max of just 21.3c i think we all went too high - we could very well end up with a High max' in August?
But if I don't get above my June high of 24.6c - when would be the last time that June gave the years highest temp'?

Well, going by Junes cumbria report, highest max' was 26.4c at Wetheral (albeit in the narrative section it states Edenhall at 26.2c).
That was on the 26th.

I feel fairly safe saying that we haven't got higher in July

so at present Mr. WMB of Seaton is the nearest with his guess.

Just to be sure i did look back at May and it was close, 26.1c - edenhall - 23rd

So are you discounting August, Darren? You're depressing me already :( I think I've had an August or two with the highest temp of the year. PLEASE don't say summer's over already.

Anne - was speaking to someone at the cathedral the other day who dropped your name into conversation.

No, I'm not discounting August. However, the predictions that i have read for august say that week 1 will be good, the rest will come under the influence of low pressure - so doesn't bode well.

I'm thinking that July/Aug/Sept will be much like that of last year????

Yes I think August will be poor, but we'll have a decent settled spell in September or October.

Perhaps a better competition will now be what will the wettest day in August be?

Good heavens - fame at last! Was it in a weather or bell ringing related context?

Anne (still hoping for some summer weather!)

Anne - it was the head verger, nice chap, can't re-call his name though.
He is going to ask Cannon Weston (?) re the Carlyle's and if in their library if they have any weather records.

He then mentioned 'Anne from Scotby'.

I'm sure that you know, but in the cathedral is a window in memory of Dr. Heysham - maybe we could ask for a window dedicated to Cumbrian weather watchers?

I suspect no differently to my last post.

i am on holiday for a week from saturday so will sort it out on my return - I'm thinking that unless sept' throws something up then the £5 voucher will be on its way to Seaton.

Just waiting for the CWR to come out to confirm my previous - once done will ask the winner whether token (£5) from WHSmiths or Waterstones.

Will put up £5 for winter (exact guess and also nearest -unless someone is prepared to match my fiver to make an exact guess a £10 token).
