September 2017 Commentary

I believe that the general consensus within the village is that September has been a pretty awful month.

There was certainly no particularly warm weather to speak of, though there was no particularly cold weather either. The middle fortnight was probably the coolest part of the month but throughout September, it felt strangely humid during the day.

There was measurable rain on twenty-three of the thirty days, with the wettest day near to the beginning of September while the last four days of the month were all particularly wet.

The average temperature for the month was 15C which makes it only half a degree below the average for the last ten years but the total rainfall of 132mm made it exactly double the norm for the month and probably the wettest September since 2000.

Certainly the cricket season came to a soggy end in Cerne Abbas while the combination of cattle and heavy rainfall have made some footpaths around Giant Hill almost impassable.
