Monthly Weather Summary

SEPTEMBER  -   The wettest September yet recorded at this site - also colder than average and along with July and August, continues a run of poor months. The lack of sunshine was notable and in turn there were was a lack of warm days and indeed this is the first September in my records that has failed to record 20°c. Rainfall was frequent, falling on 23 days, and come the month's end, the ground was saturated. Low Pressure was dominant during the month and whilst we avoided the impacts, we had the first named storm (Aileen) of the year. High pressure in the Atlantic caused a NW'ly flow during the 14-19th and under clear skies the 19th started with the first ground frost of the season.

Wettest yet recorded. MSLP was -3.8 Mb below average, rainfall 179.3% of the average for 2007-16 and the temp' 0.2°c below the long term average.

Rainfall totalled 139.5 mm   (CR school 148.5 mm)  -  Mean Min' of 8.38°c  -  Mean Max' 15.75°c  -  with a highest maximum of 19.9°c (24th) and a lowest minimum of 0.6°c (19th).

There wer no days of thunder, fog, etc - the 12th with 21.0 mm was the wettest day.

Summary   - is now updated with a full weather report for September.
