September 2018 Commentary

September started warm and dry but as the month went on, the temperatures fluctuated though the day-time maximum was never much below the twenty mark. Low pressure in the form of cooler and wetter conditions arrived briefly in the third week culminating in a very wet Saturday the 22nd. However the last week of September produced more sunshine and another dry spell though night-time temperatures often dipped to wintery levels.

The average temperature for September was 15.5C which is almost exactly the average over the last ten years while the rainfall total of 55.6mm (just over 2 inches) was again somewhat below the average of 75.4mm making it the fifth month in a row with below average rainfall this year. Let us hope that we will not be paying for it over the next few months.
