Weather Report – September 2015
Following the rather unsettled weather in Plymtree during the summer it was all change in September. There was a good deal of dry sunny weather, especially for the first 10 days and again during the last week of the month. The total rainfall I measured for the month was 43.6mm. The average (1981-2010) at Dunkeswell Airfield is 81.6mm. This means that we received only 53% of the Dunkeswell average. The wettest day of the month was the 14th with 12.0mm. There were only 8 rain days (rainfall ≥ 1mm), which compares to an average of 10.6 days for Dunkeswell but still more than last September when there were only 2! The highest temperature I recorded during September was 22.2°C on the 10th. The lowest temperature, 2.4°C was recorded on the 26th.The strongest wind during September occurred during the afternoon of the 14th when a gust of 32.7mph was recorded.
