September 2013 - Cool and not that sunny so far

Postby Nick Gardner » 2013 Sep 20, 18:31

After a warm and sunny summer, and a very warm and sunny start to this month, things have gone downhill a little, especially regarding the sunshine and cool nights.

September 2013 (1st - 20th)
Mean minimum = 9.5°C
Mean maximum = 19.8°C
Mean = 14.6°C
Rainfall = 31.4 mm
Sunshine 104 hours.

Whilst the days have generally been around average (though the last time >20°C was recorded was on the 12th (20.5°C)) the nights have been rather cool. There has only been 1 day so far this month that has been cloudless (1st), a rather low figure showing the generally cloudy nature of the month to date.

September sunshine monthly total for here and previous location:
2012 = 164 hours
2011 = 164 hours
2010 = 193 hours
2009 = 185 hours
2008 = 144 hours
2007 = 187 hours

A sunnier and much warmer week forecast so there may yet be a last minute recovery.
