Autumn 2021

Autumn 2021 continued the rather warm theme for the year so far. Rainfall below average and periods of little rainfall offset by a few days of heavier rain. The season didn't offer any windy weather and continued the trend of fairly quiet weather. September was more like a summer month than an autumn one. It started on the cool side but summer soon made a swift return as temperatures reached the upper twenties with 28.*C and 28.9C being recorded on the 7th and 8th. Despite day time heat night time temperatures weren't the warmest of the month. Summery weather lasted from the 5th until the 10thwhen it turned cooler with temperatures more like the expected values for September. The ending of the hot spell didn't see any Thunderstorms. temperatures by the 14th had dropped to 14.5C a 14.4C degree difference in seven days. The weather generally stayed in the lower twenties region though and it was only from the 27th did it turn cool for the time of year. This period saw temperatures in the mid to lower teens and night time temperatures in single figures with the coldest night on the 30th with 7C being the low. The month came in as the 2nd warmest on record. The third warmest by day and the warmest by by night. Very little rain fell from the 1st to the 27th with just 9.6mm being recorded. The met office warning system was again found wanting on the 14th when warning s for heavy rain were issued and yet only 3.2mm fell. The warnings staying in place despite radar showing a very weak system. The wet weather was confined to the last four days of the month. 35.8mm fell from the 27th to 30th bringing the total to 45.5mm of rain. The wettest day on the 30th with 13.3mm falling. Despite bing an autumn month there wasn't any windy weather during the month The highest gust 34mph on the 30th. October was another mild month with temperatures coming in a degree above normal.the month started with single figure chilly nights and actually the first half of the month was below average. The first 7 days saw single digit temperatures by night with daytime temperatures mostly in the lower teens. However October returned to early Autumn as temperatures hit 20.6C on the 8th The highest of the month. Temperatures stayed around the mid teens and above until the 14th It was in this period that the warmest night was recorded with 13C being the low. However chilly nights returned on the 11th to the 13th. A brief cold spell occurred between the 15th to the 16th and again 21st to the 25th. The cool second period produced the coldest day with 10.5C being the high and the coldest night soon followed on the 22nd when 3.5C was the low. It turned mild again from the 25th with some warm nights on the 28th and 29th with 12.9C and 12.5C being recorded. It turned cold again on the last day of the month. The average day time temperatures 14.6C +0.8C above normal while the nights weighed in at 8.5C +1.5C above normal. Rainfall October just came in above normal. However most of the rain fall in the first four days and the last four days. Between these dates only 18mm fell while the first four days recorded 25mm and the last four days 48.3mm fell. The heaviest rain falling on the 31st with 24.1mm the next heaviest was 15.2mm on the 4th double figures were also reached on the 28th with 11.6mm. October once more didn't see any really windy weather although winds gusted to 41mph on the 5th and 45mph on the 31st. The highest average wind speed at the time of recording was 13mph on the 6th. November was close to average temperature wise and a dry month as well meaning a dry autumn over all. The month looked to be a possible record breaking one until very late in the month when it moved out the warmest Novembers and driest Novembers. It did manage one record though and that the warmest nights on record. The month started on a mild note and this continued until the 21st when it turned colder before turning mild again for the last two days. The warmest day was on the 9th when 14.1C was the high. Notable mentions are 13.8C on the 13th and 13.7 and 13.6C on the 18th and 19th. Two nights stayed in double figures these being the 10th and 19th when 10.1C was the overnight low. The first visible ground frost was on the 5th but it was along wait until the next on the 22nd. The cold spell from the 21st to the 28th was quite notable taking the average down from +9C to 7.7C in eight days. Needless to say the coldest days and nights occurred in this period with 2.7C on the 27th followed by 2.3C on the 28th. The coldest night was on the 29th with -1.5C being the low just beating -1.4C from the day before. There were three air frosts during the period. Until the 26th very was very little rainfall 31.7mm of rainfall fell from the 26th to the 28th taking the month out of the driest top ten months. From the 1st to the 25th just 11.7 mm fell. Despite this it rained on all but 7 days in this period. Storm Arwen was responsible for the increase in rainfall. The final figure was 45.1mm. It wasn't a a particularly windy month until the 30th when 52 mph was recorded overnight with an average speed 0f 27mph at one point. Arwen only produced 46 mph and 26mph. It was nice to finally break the 50mph barrier again at one time a regular event but the trend over the recent years has been towards less stormy weather. For once we had Snow which fell on two days the early hours of 27th and it didn't start snowing until after three and by six there was 10cm of lying Wet snow. The Snow had two effects. It collected in the cups of the analogue anemometer reducing the recorded wind speed and stopped the sonic reading properly with a 91mph gust and then a stuck average wind speed.So it's possible some stronger gusts may have been missed. However the lack of damage suggested no strong gusts occurred. The snow hung around for three days with more snow on the 28th taking the depth back up from 5cm to 10cm once again. Very mild conditions removed the snow overnight of the 28th. However 3 days is 50% of last winters total. The weight of the wet snow brought small trees down in Graves park and caused the normal traffic chaos. Finally was Storm Arwen a storm. In this location it didn't tick the boxes. It failed to beat the 50 mph barrier the rainfall wasn't anything special and has been beaten in past by stronger systems that weren't named. The placement of 10cm of Snow in three hours was impressive. However despite the rapid snow cover for here it wasn't a storm. Certainly in other parts of the country it was and with places still without power as I type causing a huge possible dangerous disruption in peoples lives.
