Last Months Report

October was an cold month as the temperature's were concerned. The rainfall once again well above average for the month at 154.9mm 187.1% of the monthly average. The month again had very little temperature change until the last five days. Overall a quiet month without any Autumn storms which seems to be a growing feature in recent years. The month started on a very cold start for the time of year with the average temperature over two degrees below normal. Once again there was little temperature variation through most of the month until the last six days when colder air arrived from the north west. The "warmest period" was between the 5th and 12th with the warmest day being the 6th with 15.4C being recorded. The warmest nights were on the 1st and 7th with 9.5C being the low. Temperatures from the 1st to the 25th were in double figures and October seemed to be heading towards an average month overall. Things changed by the 26th although at one time the models showed an Indian summer with the warmest weather of the month. A sudden switch to a colder outlook happened within days although a warm push northwards was still albeit briefly on the cards for the 25th. AS it was we were just far enough North so the warm air only arrived for a few hours giving us a peak of 13.9C during the early part of the night before dropping away once again. The last six days were very cold with the coldest day being the 26th when 6.5C was the high. The coldest nights were in this period as 1.3C was reached on the 30th. The month always looked to be a wet month the question was to be how wet. Rain reached double figures on the 1st, 5th, 14th, 25th, and 26th. This being the 21.7mm, 10.1mm,15.9mm, 48.2mm and 12.6mm. The 26th was one of the wettest ever recorded and the wettest since October 1998. It also beat June 25th 2007 when all the floods occurred in Sheffield. The rain lasted until the 26th bringing a 48hr total to 60.8mm. October 1998 was wetter as the rainfall continued over a 72hr period getting to nearly three inches of rain. October though was the 2nd wettest on record since our records began in 1955. The month ended mostly dry preventing any occurrence of major flooding here. The month was a quiet month without any Autumn storms and the winds only guested into the mid thirties so another quiet Autumn month. Strong winds were modeled for the 25th but on the day the winds were a lot less than forecast. Although the BBC have got into a bad habit of saying it will be windy every time rain is shown even though no strong winds are modeled. There wasn't and Snow or Thundery activity during October. November will start on a cool to average note generally and rather unsettled. It will also start wet with showers or longer spells of rain as an low pressure area becomes centered over the UK. After the first couple of days temperatures will generally become around average possible slightly below by day and by night. The 2nd weekend sees colder air trying to ease in as the low pressure edges away to the north east. Showers will be the main theme and it may turn cold enough for some wintriness at times. Frosts at night as well. This mainly being due to a slack area of low pressure over the southern areas of the UK while a high will be based to the north east. AS to how long the block to the north east lasts is uncertain. At the moment it seems to block will be eroded by the Atlantic with a a mild south westerly flow being established which may bring the first real windy weather of the autumn. It's looking like another wet month with near normal temperatures. Snow will be very rare and mainly confined to the highest ground.
