The mildest night was the 2nd when the temperature didn't drop below 16.6C, the highest October minimum temperature I've recorded. No air or ground frosts were recorded bringing the running total for 2023 to 10 air frosts and 41 ground frosts.

October's rainfall total measured in my traditional 5 inch diameter copper rain gauge was 136.7mm, 134% of the long-term (1991-2020) average. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 148.0mm. The wettest day was the 12th (the 12th covering the period from 9am GMT on 12th to 9am GMT on the 13th) when 19.6mm was collected in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater was measured on 23 days, 1mm or more on 16 days, 5mm or more on 10 days and 10mm or more on 7.

As for 2022 as a whole, the overall mean temperature was 12.59C, 0.89C above the long-term 1991-2020 average, the mean daily maximum temperature was 16.02C, 1.02C above the long-term average, and mean daily minimum 9.17C, 0.77C above the long-term average. Overall 2022 was warmest year in my record that extends back to 2008. Highest temperature during the year was 31.8C on 17th June, the highest that I've recorded. It beat my previous record of 29.7C recorded on 8th August 2020. Lowest temperature was -2.8C on 12th December. Twelve air frosts were recorded in 2022, one less than 2021 (2 in Jan and 10 in Dec) and this was just above the long-term 1991-2020 average of 11.1. There were 55 ground frosts in 2022 (18 in Jan, 10 in Feb, 4 in Mar, 6 in Apr, 1 in Nov and 16 in Dec), 15 less thn 2021. There are no long-term statistics for grass frost in Teignmouth although my average for the period 2009-2022 is 65 grass frosts (and 11 air frosts for the same period). Total rainfall recorded by my manual gauge during 2022 was 802.6mm, 92.3% of the long-term 1991-2020 average, 194.1mm less than 2021, and was the driest year since 2011. Wettest day of the year was 18th Dec when 42.6mm was recorded. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater was measured on 188 days, 2 more than in 2021.

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.
