A warm, rather dry month, particularly the first ten days, with plenty of sunshine. Cooling off and rather cloudy towards the month’s end.
A warm, very wet month. There were two short distinct periods of heavy rainfall. The first 5 days of the month (Total = 49.8 mm) and 18th to 20th (Total = 46.3 mm). This was 92% of the month’s total. The rest of the month was dry. Flooding was not an issue due to the previous dry months. The month’s warmth encouraged plants and shrubs to bloom to the end of it and right up to, as I write (14/11/21), with a bee seen on a fuchsia early this morning!
