|Ossett September Average Temperatures from 2010 to 2016|
Thursday, 8 September 2016
Sometimes I write up my blog post the night before it's posted which means that sometimes I can miss the odd weather record. As it happens Tuesday's average temperature was the highest September average I've recorded in seven years of keeping records.
The daily average temperature for Tuesday was 20.8° C (69.4°F) unusually high even for early September. Although the daytime high was 25.6°C (78.1°F) we only managed a little over two hours of sunshine. The nightime low was a very high 15.6°C (60.1°F). We will soon be wishing we could have that as a daytime high never mind as a nightime low.
I had to take a photo of these cyclamen flowering in a corner of our small pebble garden.
I'm not sure what they'll make of such high overnight temperatures but I'm sure the weather will cool down soon.
