November was a cold month, although milder 13th-16th, ground frosts recorded on 17 mornings, and air frosts on 5 mornings. Many days were dry, the above average months rain falling on 8-9th, 12th and especially 20th,21st,22nd (77mm fell on these very dull three days alone, including 43mm on the 21st). I feared my solar radiation sensor had failed on 21st, as it never exceeded 30W/m2 that day!

Nevertheless some good sunny days at the beginning and the end of the month.

The mean temperature 5.3C ranks 8th lowest in 61 years here, and it is the 8th wettest November (but not as wet as 2008, 2009, 2012 or 2014).

Total rainfall from Jan-Nov is 951mm, and this ranks 7th highest against all Jan-Dec rainfall totals, so if we get an average rainfall during December, we are likely going to have the 4th wettest year in 6 decades. The three wettest so far are 2014, 2012 and 1960, so we are clearly seeing a pattern to more extreme rainfall of late.


Autumn Stats

Sep 2016, Oct 2016, Nov 2016

Statistically the 3 months of Autumn have been a little milder than usual, and a bit wetter than usual, but this hides variation between the months.

HiMax temperature was 6th highest since 1956. 
HiMin was joint highest (shares the record with 2011)
Mean temperature was the 13th= highest.

However temperatures varied from 2.4deg above normal in a very warm Sept, 0.5deg above normal in Oct and 1.5deg below normal in a cool Nov,

Rainfall anomaly was 125% in Sept, only 41% in a dry Oct, then 164% in a wet Nov.

So the variations between the three months have been quite significant, the swings from wet to dry do appear to be getting greater, and this will be analysed in greater depth for this location over the last 61 years.
