Fresh dates seem to be appearing for no sites at this point.
This means your cache has reverted to whatever the master cache for that page is. August 3 is a reasonable date for the current master cache for a page.

cached pages here are 21 Aug

90% or so of the pages on my site read:

I have pages that don't have a fresh date but have updated since Sunday. I know because I made a big change on my site and the serps show it.

I'm seeing cache dates of Aug 23, 2004 09:22:08 GMT for a number of my pages and fresh dates in the SERPS of Aug. 22.

I've got fresh dates of August 22, and cached dates of August 23.

Newly updated pages seem to be bodged into the index. The cache typically sticks for around 5 days and reverts back. Changes may not stick until a full update occurs every few weeks. This used to be called the Dance but since algo changes, backlink updates and index updates all seem to occur independantly, index updates may go unnoticed. It may also be the case that partial updates of the index occur daily but the whole rolling process still requires several weeks to complete. If this is happening, then I guess changes will stick after one cycle completes.
That, at least, is my experience but I haven't bothered to observe this behaviour for a while.

Most of our sites show yesterdays date, however one site has slipped back to Saturday the 14th of August.
Seems pretty hit and miss to be honest...

Unless these pages are updated and spidered, they'll revert back in a few days. They'll jump forward again as they are fully integrated into the index.

On most of our sites a lot of the content is refreshed every 48 hours.
I use a server side date to check this...

I had a 30% increase in traffic in the past two weeks but now my traffic has dropped back down to numbers from around Aug. 3rd.
You may be right.

I can see no pattern to this and am not sure (IMHO) that it means anything. I have a number of pages that have been cached from every day during August and some are above where they started out in SERPS on 8/3 and some below. To me it just looks like a normal pattern/flux of SERP changes.

Weird, all is back to normal now, wel as normal as it has been since the beginning of this month, but it's a much more current cache. No I don't use dynamic pages.

I can't confirm the date but for most of our phrases, the SERPS are definately similar to an earlier time frame.

Our Google traffic collapsed on August 3-4. Somewhat recovered on the 12th. Have completely recovered to pre August 4 levels as of today. Not sure if it's that the index is from August 3, or the algo has switched back to what it was August 3.
