January 2019 proved to be colder than average with a mean maximum temperature of 8.7C, 0.7C below the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 4.0C, bang on average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 12.4C on the 12th. The lowest minimum air temperature was -2.3C on the 31st, and grass minimum was -6.1C recorded on the 31st. Seventeen ground frosts were recorded along with 2 air frosts.

January was rather dry with 54.5mm of rain recorded in my accurate 5 inch copper rain gauge, 57% of the average, driest since before my records began in 2008. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 55.8mm. The wettest days were the 18th & 31st when 11.9mm was recorded in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater was recorded on 11 days with 10mm or more on 3.

Just taking a look back at 2018, the mean daily maximum temperature was 15.5C, 1.0C above the long term average, and mean daily minimum 8.9C, 0.7C above the average. Ten air frosts were recorded (1 in Jan, 4 in Feb and 5 in Mar), well below the average of 14.4. There were 51 ground frosts (11 in Jan, 19 in Feb, 12 in Mar, 3 in Oct, 3 in Nov and 3 in Dec). Rainfall from my manual gauge was 1015.4mm, 120% of the average and wettest since 2014.

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.
