OCTOBER 2020

October was overall cooler than normal by 0.5 degrees, although swung between mild and cool several times; milder during the first week, the 20th-21st , and 29th-31st, cooler from 9th-18th and 22nd-28th .The mean max temp was the 10th lowest in 65 years records here, the high max was 6th lowest but low min was 6th highest, making the spread of the temperatures smaller then normal. There were no ground or air frosts, in fact this was one in only 8 years out of 65 that has not experienced a ground frost (good for growers!).

Rainfall was the 12th highest recorded here, and 34% above normal. During 2nd and 3rd over 44mm fell, 17mm on 24th, 9mm on 7th and 9mm on 31st.  In all 26 raindays in October, beaten only by October 1976.

There were some good sunny days, especially 15th and 22nd, also 1st, 7th, 11th, 25th, 26th, 28th were good. At the other extreme very dull on 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 21st, 24th, 30th and 31st.  Quite windy 2nd-10th, 19th-20th, also 24th-31st.
Unsurprisingly the mean atmospheric pressure was quite low, the 8th lowest in October here.
