NOVEMBER 2004
Forward to December 2004

The month was dominated by high pressure and winds from the north, which brough much "anti-cyclonic gloom" but little rainfall. The month's total of 26.7mm was the lowest recorded November rainfall at this site in 20 years of data collection (previous record was 32.0mm in 1988) and just over 35% of the average. Two wet days accounted for over 50% of the monthly rainfall (2nd, 6.9mm and 18th (10.2mm). Temperatures were close to average, being slightly above average in daytime and more so during the nights (which were largely frost free thanks to cloud cover). Generally temperatures were consistently "average" but there was one very short cold snap (19th & 20th) with sleet observed. There were no significant storms or gales.

'WIND ROSE' PLOT FOR THE MONTH
The 'petals' represent wind direction and the length represents frequency, i.e. in this case winds from the N were the most common, followed by SW and SSW.

The colours represent the strength of the wind, with black being weakest through dark and medium blue then lighter colours (cyan, light green, yellow, magenta, red) being stronger
