  1. A dry and mainly sunny day. Turning chilly after sunset with a widespread ground frost.

  2. Any early evening showers soon died out to leave a dry night with clearing cloud and a slight ground frost. Cloud increased again by 0700 but cleared an hour and half later. Dry, cool and sunny at the moment. At 0900 Temp; 2.8c 24 hr max' 6.4c 24 hr min; 1.6c Grass min; -0.7c Rainfall in 24 hrs ending 0900; 4.5 mm Mean wind speed; 11 mph N 2 oktas Sc Vis; over 80 km.
  3. A cloudy day with light-moderate drizzle or rain, the rain mostly in short bursts. Dry by 1800. At 1800 Temp; 5.3c Max today; 6.4c Min last night; 4.8c Grass min; 1.9c Rainfall from 0900-1800; 4.0 mm Sunshine today; 0.0 mm Mean wind speed; 19 mph N/NE Highest gust today; 33 mph N/NE at 1708 8 oktas Cu, Ac and Sc Vis; 55 km Showers in past hour
  4. A few clear intervals early yesterday evening but most of the night was cloudy with occasional light drizzle. Drizzle early this morning has been replaced by periods of light-moderate rain. At 0900 Temp; 5.9c 24 hr max; 7.3c 24 hr min; 4.8c Grass min; 1.9c Rainfall in 24 hrs ending 0900; 1.0 mm Mean wind speed; 7 mph N Sky obscured by fog Vis; 130 mts Continuous moderate drizzle
  5. A cloudy day with light-moderate showers around 1400 after a mainly dry morning. At 1800; Temp; 6.1c Max today; 7.3c Min last night; 4.6c Grass min; 2.6c Rainfall from 0900-1800; 0.9 mm Sunshine today; 0.0 hrs Mean wind speed; 5 mph NW Highest gust today; 12 mph NW at 1632 7 oktas Cu, Sc and St fractus Vis; 20 km.
  6. Currently on 495.5 mm for the autumn here so it looks unlikely that the 579.8 mm of autumn 2000 will be reached but it's already the second wettest autumn, and season of any name, on record with two weeks to go. 163.1 mm so far in November so it would have to remain unsettled for the rest of the month to beat 211.7 mm in November 2000. It is however the wettest first half of any month on my records which began at this site in 1977, the previous record for the first half of a month was 148.1 mm in June 2012. The first half of December 1965 may have been equally as wet, or wetter, as I recorded 125.5 mm at a site a few miles away but about 35% drier than here.
  7. A cloudy night with hill fog and periods of light-moderate rain. The rain gave way to drizzle by dawn and by 0800 it was dry though still foggy. The fog has lifted in the last 15 minutes. At 0900 Temp; 6.0c 24 hr max; 6.0c 24 hr min; 4.4c Overnight min; 4.6c Grass min; 2.6c Rainfall in 24 hrs ending 0900; 6.3 mm Mean wind speed; 3 mph NE Sky obscured by fog Vis; 120 m
  8. A mainly cloudy day with occasional light showers, and one moderate shower later p.m. At 1800 Temp; 4.4c Max today; 6.0c Min last night; 0.5c Grass min; 0.1c Rainfall from 0900-1800; 0.9 mm Sunshine today; 0.2 hrs Mean wind speed; 27 mph NE Highest gust today; 41 mph NE at 1740 6 oktas Cu, Sc and Ac Vis; 55 km Light rain showers
  9. Yesterday evening's wet snow moved away to the north by 1930, the temperature rose a couple of degrees and the thin layer of lying snow quickly thawed. The rest of the night was cloudy with a few showers and no change so far this morning. At 0900 Temp; 4.4c 24 hr max; 4.7c 24 hr min; 0.5c Grass min; 0.1c Rainfall in 24 hrs ending 0900; 24.0 mm Mean wind speed; 15 mph N/NE 8 oktas Ac, Cu and St fractus Vis; 20 km Light showers of rain
  10. A cold and windy day with moderate-heavy rain or sleet, turning to wet snow by 1700. The NE wind reached gale force during the morning and early afternoon but decreased a bit by late afternoon.

  12. Heavy wet sleet here with a NE wind gusting to 57 mph. Glad I'm retired and inside!!
  13. A clear and dry start to the night. Clouding over by midnight and then showers or longer spells of rain arriving early this morning. At 0900 Temp; 3.4c 24 hr max; 5.8c 24 hr min; 1.6c Grass min; -3.5c Rainfall in 24 hrs ending 0900; 3.6 mm Mean wind speed; 27 mph NE 8 oktas Ns Vis; 11 km Continuous moderate rain
  14. I too remember this event. The lane through the village where I lived at the time ( only about 9 miles from where I am now ) was completely filled with snow 8 feet deep, the drifts burying our garden hedge and stretching 30 feet or more into the garden. I was very young and the drifts looked absolutely enormous.
  15. A dry day with a few sunny intervals and a gentle breeze which backed from W early this morning to SE by late afternoon. The grass was soon crisp with frost after sunset. At 1800 Temp; 2.4c Max today; 5.8c Min last night; 1.9c Grass min; -2.6c Rainfall from 0900-1800; 0.0 mm Sunshine today; 1.3 hrs Mean wind speed; 5 mph SE Highest gust today; 16 mph S at 1405 1 okta Cu humilis, Ac and Ci Vis; over 80 km.
