Ossett’s September

It turned out to be a very mild September but not the mildest of the five Septembers I have records for. That honour still goes to September 2011 with an average temperature of 15.0°C compared to this year’s 14.6°C. It’s rather strange that even though the month was on the mild side it didn't do very well in the sunshine stakes as we had lots of dull mild days as cloud came in off the North Sea.
In the end it’s the lowest September sunshine total in my five years of records. High pressure remained in charge throughout the month keeping rainfall totals down. By the end of the month we’d had only 9.8mm of rain making it the third driest month I've recorded.

  1. A summer's day here today. I heard that somewhere in France they just had half a year's rainfall in one day. Crazy weather.
