Comments
October 2018 proved to be around average for temperature with a mean maximum temperature of 15.4C, 0.2C above the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 8.9C, 0.4C below average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 20.0C on the 13th. The lowest minimum air temperature was 0.5C on the 31st, and grass minimum was -2.2C recorded on the 31st. Three ground frosts were recorded during October on the 29th, 30th and 31st. No air frosts were recorded.

October was drier than average with 63.6mm of rain recorded in my accurate 5 inch copper rain gauge, just 67% of the average. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 65mm. The wettest day was the 11th when 23.1mm was recorded in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater was recorded on 16 days with 10mm or more on 3.

November 2018 proved to be warmer than average overall with the mean daily maximum temperature 12.3C, 0.2C above the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 7.8C, 1.4C above average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 14.8C on the 28th. The lowest minimum air temperature was 1.4C, and grass minimum temperature was 1.7C, both recorded on the 2nd. No air frosts but 3 ground frosts were recorded during the month. The ground frosts were on the 2nd, 21st and 27th.

November was a very wet month with 198.6mm of rain recorded in my accurate 5 inch copper rain gauge, 229% of the average. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 198.2mm. The wettest day was the 9th when 40.8mm was recorded in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater was recorded on 22 days during the month with 10mm or more on 7 days. I've recently spent some time digitising historic rainfall records in Teignmouth and reckon that November 2018 was the fifth wettest in the rainfall series extending back to 1854. The wettest November in the series was in 1929 when 294.2mm were recorded, followed by 275.1mm in 1888, 210.4mm in 1926 and 209.4 in 1963.

The tables above show weather conditions recorded by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station sited in Teignmouth, South Devon. They are usually updated every 10 minutes. All times are Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so add one hour for British Summer Time (BST).

* Air temperature is measured 1.9m above ground level and the anemometer is just 2.2m above ground level in a NNW/SSE oriented valley. The wind direction is therefore heavily biased towards either the up or down valley direction and the anemometer is very sheltered from the prevailing westerly flow by higher ground directly upstream. The thermistor that measures grass tip temperature only has a resolution of 1 degree Fahrenheit and this has been automatically converted into Celcius to the nearest 0.1 degrees. A grass temperature of < 0°C indicates the occurrence of a ground frost (air temperature < 0°C indicates an air frost). The leaf wetness sensor monitors the level of surface moisture on foliage and hence the occurrence of dew, fog, drizzle, rain etc. Soil moisture is measured in centibars (cb) [0-10cb = saturated soil, 10-30cb = ground adequately wet, 30-100cb = ground needs irrigating to maintain maximum production, 100-200 cb = ground dry. ]. The strength of the sun's ultraviolet radiation is expressed as a UV index and was developed by the World Health Organization. As a guide 0-2 = low, 3-5 = medium, 6-7 = high, 8-10 = very high, 11+ = extreme. You can safely stay outside if UV is low, and it is recommended that you wear sunscreen if levels are moderate or higher, and seek shade if levels are high or above. In Teignmouth UV levels reach 7 in mid-summer and may reach 8 on exceptional days.
