Morland - rainfall in September 1920 was 51.3 mm and between 1902-44 the average for the month was 70.7 mm

Orton - between 1967-2019 the average rainfall for September is 129.0 mm - the driest being 8.4 mm (2014) and the wettest 275.9 mm (1981)

Maulds Meaburn - September - the last three have all notched up over 100 mm of rain and 2016 only fell 0.4 mm shourt, so maybe we are due a dry one. Conversely, 2014 with 10.1 mm is still the driest of any month in my records! A 50-50 chance of seeing the first ground frost of the season, but air frosts are rare.   -   The mean temperature has ranged from 11.41°c (2015) to 14.08°c (2016).

Averages 89.6 mm of rain    -    20°c on 3.5 days    -    25°c on 0.1 days    -    Ground Frost on 1.2 days    -    Thunder on 0.2 days    -    Days of rain 15.8
