Coldest start to an August in 30 years

Figure 1

I notice that the latest provisional mean maximum daily temperature for the first eight days of August in Central England of 18.89°C (-1.38°C) are the lowest for that period since 1987 (fig 2). The 10 year average mean temperature for this period, has been on a downturn since 2000, and even the linear trend shows only limited warming since 1772 (fig 1).
