Monthly Weather Summary

OCTOBER  -   apart from the 5-7th the month was dry and settled for the 1st-20th with high pressure dominant. The month then became unsettled from the 21st with rain becoming increasingly frequent and heavier. During the beginning of the spells of high pressure, 1st-4th and 8th-20th we enjoyed some decent sunny days, becoming increasingly cloudier towards the end of those periods. We had the earliest autumn day to fail to attain 10° (3rd) followed three days later by the latest day to hit 20°. There were some cold nights, although we only had the one air frost with the mean minimum for the month down on average, but this was more than offset by the mean maximum resulting in the mean temp' for the month being slightly above. MSLP was +7.5Mb above average. The coldest Oct' since 2012 and the driest since 2010 (the 3rd driest of 9) with rainfall totalling 74.1 mm (CR school 76.7 mm).

Mean Min' of 4.86°c - Mean Max' 13.70°c with the highest maximum of 20.4°c (6th) and a lowest minimum of -1.0°c (14th).
