The Met Office has just released the UK statistics for this summer.
Across the country as a whole, June and July were both drier and warmer than average and we were well on course for one of its best summers for years.
But it's been the truly dismal weather throughout August - probably the coolest since 1993 and with 142 per cent of its expected rainfall making it the 18th wettest August on record - that has brought the average for the whole summer down so dramatically.
This ended our eight month run of warmer than average months and with blustery winds and showers, there's now a definite touch of autumn in the air as summer 2014 draws to a close.
So it might actually surprise you that the first week of our first autumnal month promises to bring warm, dry, sunny weather.
With pressure building across the UK throughout the week, many areas could see highs into the mid 20's by the end of the week.
Now that's well above average.
