|Temperature, Rainfall & High Wind Speed Records for Friday 13 to Sunday 15 November 2015|
Monday, 16 November 2015
It's been a very wet weekend. We had plenty of rain on both Saturday and Sunday with slightly more on Saturday. It was also pretty windy on both days too. Saturday saw 10.4mm (0.41”) of rainfall whilst we had 9.6mm (0.38”) on Sunday.
We've managed 29.4mm (+1.16”) now since we've had a spell of 24 hours without any rain.
Sunday saw the wind gusting to 28mph which equals my highest recorded value for November. The last time I recorded a similar value in November was on 11 November 2010.
Our tub of dahlias has taken a bit of a battering in the strong winds. I’ll cut them back and move the tub into the greenhouse to give the tubers some winter protection.
The forecast for next week is for the wet and windy conditions to continue into the latter part of the week before we get a cold snap beginning on Friday and lasting into the early part of the following week. The wind direction changes to a northerly and there's the possibility of snow on higher ground in Scotland and northern England. Temperatures through the day are expected to be only just above freezing.
