Starts like last year

November has started off on a mild pleasant note, in fact very similar to last year. Last year November started off mild but after a week temperatures plummeted to give us a very cold month. I’m hoping that’s not going to be the case this year.
October was certainly a mild month here, with an average temperature of 11.88°C ranking 16th warmest, going back to the 1700’s, based on the Central England Temperature Record. Mild Octobers don’t seem to be a completely recent phenomenon with milder Octobers having occurred in 1811, 1818 and 1838.

It’s been yet another dry month with below average rainfall of 44.4mm against an expected 68.7mm becoming the eighth month in a row with below average rainfall.
