November 2017 turned out to be a little below average overall in terms of temperature. Although the mean maximum temperature of 12.1C was equal to the long term (1981-2010) average, the mean minimum temperature was 5.9C, some 0.5C below the long-term average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 15.6C on the 22nd, and the lowest was 1.9C on the 25th. The warmest night was the 25th when the air temperature dropped no lower than 12.2C. There were no air frosts, but there were 8 ground frosts with the first frost occurring on the 6th (-0.6C). The month was considerably drier than normal with 35.1mm recorded in my accurate manual gauge (just 39% of the average), and this followed October where only 45% of the long term average fell. My less reliable automatic Davis gauge recorded 41.4mm during November. The wettest day was the 22nd when 12.6mm was recorded in my manual gauge. The number of days with 5mm or more recorded was just one. Precipitation >=1.0mm was recorded on 9 days and >=0.2mm on 17 days.

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.
