No change in the weather pattern for the start of December and metrological winter. It was a dull, dry day with average temperatures. Colder weather is forecast for the rest of the week with the possibility of night time frosts.
Watching Countryfile on BBC TV on Sunday evening I was surprised when the weatherman summarised autumn as sunnier than average.
He didn't say that some places had been lucky enough to have a sunny autumn the implication was everybody had been treated to something special. Well not everyone has. The table above shows that as far as sunshine records go we've had a miserable autumn. September and November recorded the lowest sunshine records over the last five years and October managed fourth place out of the five years. It certainly hasn't been an autumn to remember because we've had lots of sunshine.
