November 2017 Commentary

What was shaping as a fairly benign November took on a rather cold twist towards the end of the month but overall plenty of sunny and rather dry weather represented a fairly gentle approach to winter.

The first part of November had its share of wet days although the day-time temperatures were usually in the teens and it was only on the 22nd and the 27th that we had substantial rain in the remainder of the month and it was really only during the last week that temperatures became chilly by day and extremely cold at night.

The average temperature for November was 8.4C which is the exact figure of the average over the last decade in Cerne Abbas. The total rainfall of 81.4mm was only just over half the average measured over the last ten years and follows on a wet September and a dry October.

The footpaths around the village are in a pretty good state for this time of year though the cattle have turned sections of Priests' Walk into a quagmire.
