    Interesting how similiar the last 4 months have been to those in 2004. The summer was similar to that in 2004. September 2004 was one degree warmer than September 2020 but the rainfalls are similiar.

    October 2020 -- Table of entries

    The number in brackets after forecaster name is order of entry for last revision. If the EWP forecast is not changed at same time as CET revision, it retains the original order of entry but is compressed to an intermediate 0.5 between values in the revised  CET order of entry, or if changed after unrevised CET entry, placed between two CET entries with decimal place. 

    Late entries have the code L1-1 to L1-6.

    202 minutes late sorry (but I don't remember to play every month anyway......)

     

        I personally think October 2020 is going to be absolutely horrific and end of the world like at times. I think that sometime in mid to late October, say the 19th, we are in for a vile Atlantic storm which will rival and actually surpass the Great Storm of October 1987 which will rip up trees and cause unwanted devastation  which just adds to the increasing misery wrought by Covid.

         There will be nothing settled about this month and the overall temperature will be fairly academic at a mild 11.8.C but within that extremes will exist with a predominant westerly but every wind direction and air mass source will get represented, at times snow on the mountains, with at least one very short lived Spanish plume sending warmth info the high 20.Cs with a ridiculously mild night following breaking date if not overall month records.

     

       Needless to say very wet, although severe gales will be that much of a feature that the rain that does fall will often just get blown away by evaporation in the quieter interludes! So less flooding than this total suggests which us one positive....156mm.

    Good feeling we'll get something much warmer/drier/potentially foggy with cool nights after a horrendous first half this month.

    October is a rapidly cooling month,  any examples of the second half being milder than first half, probably not many.

    Maybe 2009?  I think the second half was warmer than the first half possibly?

    I dont know how it will average out but its supposed to rain for the next 24/36 hours down here in various places in southern UK.

    So one would imagine thats a pretty large chunk going onto the rainfall totals.

    Hugely impressive radar chart showing the low pressure to the south of us.
