A Rain Free Day At Last!

It took the official start of autumn to bring our long spell of consecutive rain days to an end.
Temperature & Rainfall Details 29 August - 22 September 2017
Thursday was our first rain free day this month although in truth it wasn't much of a day. As the last couple of days of August were wet too that's a total of 22 consecutive days with some amount of rainfall. I can't find anything close to that in my eight years of record keeping. 

There wasn't any sunshine on Thursday and it threatened to rain for much of the day. It wasn't until late evening that the clouds began to break up leaving the skies clear overnight. 

The clear skies resulted in our lowest temperature of the month as the thermometer fell to 4.5°C (40.1°F) by dawn on Friday.
Friday has started off as a lovely sunny morning with clear, blue skies but there's a distinctly autumnal feel to the morning.


  1. I guess it's nature way to indicate the beginning of Autumn! ;)

    1. I think you're probably right Malar. I love the autumnal colours but don't particularly enjoy the thought that winter is to follow.
