Default Summer still hanging on....

Not a bad ol' day with sunny spells and feeling warm in the still quite
strong sunshine this afternoon.

This month so far has been on the warmer side of average and very dry
with just 1.8 mm in one event on the 12th. Lawn browning again for
umpteenth time this year.

Mean maximum temperature currently at 21.8C and given the forecast, some
more warmth on its way.

On the plane coming back from Lisbon last night, the pilot said the
temperature at Bristol Airport was 'unfortunately' half of what it was
in Lisbon. I told Cila it was -143C at Bristol so she'd better put her
woollies on. Mind you it did feel a bit nippy when we arrived. Bristol
Airport is always cold, evening when it is hot.

A pleasant, balmy(ish) evening. Might get a good glimpse of Mars,
Saturn, Jupiter and Venus all in a long arc across the sky from east to
west.

1st - 14th
Mean minimum = 11.1C
Mean maximum = 21.8C
Mean = 16.5C
Rain = 1.8 mm
Sunshine = 83 hours.

Whatever you say Len but the temperatures for the last two weeks would
do June proud, and what about that rainfall.... 1.8 mm in two weeks.

Sunshine a little bit below par but not too bad. Maximum gust so far 24
mph and a wind run of only 754 miles. Looking back over the last 13
years, September is one of the driest and windless months I have
recorded. How does that make it equinoctial? October - now that's
another matter.

The only thing to give it away of the shortness of the day.


It was decidedly chilly for many places in the south and Midlands last
night, another thing to give it away.

Mean 16.0C here Nick, but does feel Autumnal, due to the chilly mornings and dark evenings. When I took these photos http://www.turnstone-cottage.co.uk/Septearlyeve.html last Wednesday around 17:45-19:15 it was distinctly chilly, only around 13C by the time I left, and getting dark. Back in June you would be outside the Old Success in very warm sunshine later than that.

Lack of rain is still the notable thing. About 8mm here this month, but of that 5mm fell on 1st. The stream in my garden has never been so low. I recently went up to Drift Dam to see some submerged houses which have emerged for the 1st (possibly 2nd) time since the dam was completed in 1960.

Helene swell due to arrive early Tues, 18' & 17secs forecast for Sennen. Cue the extreme surfers. (Who'll need to arrive before 10:00 when the lifeguards arrive & red flag the beach!)

Grass is lovely & green now due to a few days of misty drizzle.

Mean here is 14.5, which is 1.5 above average. For me, it is the light quality that makes it feel autumnal.

The reservoirs in the upper Taff valley near the Storey Arms pass were very low when I last saw them (31st July). Rainfall has been below average since then, but not as dramatically as other places. September total currently stands at 37.4 mm, which is 45% of normal for this point in the month and 21% for the whole month. Evaporation levels have been quite low though, as it has been mainly cloudy with high dewpoints since the end of July.
