The first below average month since July 2004. It was a month of two halves, with the first 15 days being exceptionally mild and the last 15 being exceptionlly cold. Unusually, the cold spell totally cancelled out the mild spell, something that rarely happens these days. It was also an extremely sunny month, with rainfall around average and a well above average number of frosts (9 compared to the 1971-2000 average of 3).

The first 15 days were mild, wet and windy, with predominantly southerly or south-westerly winds. The 2nd and 3rd were particularly warm days, with a maxima of 17.5°C on the 2nd and a minima the following day of 12.3°C. The wettest day was the 8th, where 13.9mm of rainfall in the 24 hour period.

From the 16th it turned cold and anticylonic, with calm conditions from the 17th-21st allowing 5 consecutive air frosts, the first time this has happened in November since I began recording. The 23rd was very cold and foggy, with the temperature not rising above 1.3°C during the daylight hours. The 24th saw the arrival of northerly winds, leaving a covering of snow the following morning, the first in November for many years.

The remaining days of the month were also dominated by northerly winds, though precipitation was more in the way of rain, hail and sleet. Nevertheless, there were some exceptionally low values, with maximas of 4.2°C and 3.5°C on the 28th and 29th and a hard frost on the 30th as the temperature fell to -2.4°C.

I'm sure many of us will be reporting things that are either records or near records.

The basic statistics are

Mean max=9.4(9.3)

Mean min=2.7(3. :D

mean overall = 6.0(6.5)

air frost 11(6)

ground frost15(11)

snow or sleet=1(1)



there were 14 consecutive nights with ground frost and 9 with air frost.

Only the winter of 1993 at RAF Finningel had the same number

The mean temp for 16-20 inclusive was 2.4C

I have not yet had time to check but I 'beliece' its probably the coldest spell of that length since I started with full time records in my back garden 1 January 1997. If not then I will amend the dates and times found in red.

The first 12 days had a mean temp of 10.0C

It is the first month in very many months with the mean temp below average.

A truly amazing month.

Hi everyone, here is my November 2005 Report for Burton upon Trent.

The first week and a half in to November was very unsettled and dominated by a strong south-westerly air stream, temperatures continued to be well above the seasonal average, I recorded some exceptionally warm days here in Burton for the time of year.

Around the 11th and 12th of the month a dramatic turn around in the weather developed.

A deep area of Low pressure moved east across northern Scotland, as the low moved further north east towards Scandinavia, colder arctic air spread down the whole country, under clear skies over the night time periods, temperature fell close to freezing, from the 12th to the 14th I recorded 3 ground frosts here in Burton.

The 16th saw low-pressure over Scandinavia and high pressure over Greenland, this had the effect of forcing more cold arctic air all the way down across the Country.

I recorded the first air frost of the season on the night of the 17th.

By the 18th a high-pressure cell settled down over the BI and with clear skies and light winds, moderate frost was widespread at night, followed by cold crisp sunny days, with frost persisting in shaded areas here over 4 consecutive days.

There was another Arctic incursion on the 24th, this time the air was even colder and many areas of the Country reported snowfall.

Burton recorded its first snowfall of the season on the 28th, with around 1cm settling in areas out of the valley.

Finally, the last day of the month saw less cold weather move in from the southwest.

Summary: After a very mild start to November with the mean temperature up to 3.5c above the CET average, a major change occurred around the middle of the month. It became much colder and frost became a major feature of the weather.

Incredibly I also recorded 15 consecutive nights of frost, I think we would have to go back a fair number of years to match that. So overall with a snowfall to finish off the month, November 2005 turned out to be quite a wintry month. Who would have predicted that during the first week :)

Average maximum temperature = 8.0c

Average minimum temperature = 3.1c

Mean temperature = 5.5c / –1.4c below the CET average.

Warmest day on the 2nd = 15.9c

Coldest day on the19th =1.8c

Warmest night on the 3rd = 10.8c

Coldest night on the 19th = –3c

Ground Frosts = 10

Air frost = 9

Days of snow = 1

Days of lying snow = 0.5

Rainfall total = 36mm

NOVEMBER 2005 Yatton, Bristol, North Somerset

The month overall worked out to be almost average. The 1st half of the month was very wet and exceptionally mild whereas the 2nd half heralded the longest wintry period since January 2003.

1st - 4th

After some thunderstorms to end the 31st, the 1st saw a scattering of heavy showers but light winds. Some showers had hail mixed in. A depression swept across the country bringing longer spells of heavy rain and strong winds and as the cold front moved across, thunderstorms formed along the trough. This dropped 10mm in 20 minutes. The were further showers into the 3rd and especially into the 4th when they became heavy again. There were severe gales on the 3rd as winds reached over 60MPH but eased significantly the following day.

5th - 9th

The rain held off for Bonfire Night, just, but a deep low pressure system meant torrential rain on the 6th and further strong winds gusting to an average of 25MPH. There was localised flooding in places as over an inch fell. There were further heavy showers on the 7th before a respite. The 8th was predominantly dry before a cold front brought another spell of sudden thundery rain causing flooding. The 9th saw showers dying away leaving a mostly fine, autumnal afternoon.

10th - 13th

The 10th saw a warm front approach from the west meaning low cloud, mist and long outbreaks of light rain and drizzle. The 11th started off dry but a front moved up from the southwest bringing torrential rain and squally winds from 3pm onwards. Torrential, thundery showers followed on behind and through the night storms developed. There were thunderous downpours with hail and sheet lightning overnight 11th/12th and winds gusting to 80MPH. The 12th was fine and sunny after showers died away and the 13th was fine, dry and mostly sunny as high pressure began to build.

14th - 15th

There was a hard frost on the 14th and plenty of sunshine followed. The 15th however was milder with low cloud and fog slowly clearing.

16th - 21st

An exclusion of frost on the 16th was due to breezy conditions but by the 17th all places had frost. There were long sunny periods for most places and the 18th turned out to be the coldest day of the month. There was widespread frost and fog on the morning of the 19th but this soon cleared and the 20th was another cold, sunny and very frosty day. The 21st started clear and frosty but a plague of fog returned into the afternoon with terrible visibility.

22nd - 25th

This period was largely dull, cold and frost-free. There was a lot of low cloud and fog. Rain and sleet showers pushed down from the northwest on the 24th on a brisk wind. Overnight into the 25th, the showers readily turned to snow and by the afternoon of the 25th, 6cm had fallen in Bristol. The rest of the day was sunny but cold.

26th - 30th

The 26th was frost free but icy after clear skies. There were hail showers at times later. The 27th and 28th were both dull, dry and cold. Many places reported snow on the 28th but all of it missed the south of the city. The 29th was frosty but cloud developed as the day wore on the 30th turned milder as a band of heavy rain pushed through during the morning.

Monthly Rainfall - 123.2mm

Average Temperature - 6.6C

Rain Days - 15

Dry Days - 15

Frosts - 9

Hail Showers - 6

Sleet Showers - 3

Snow Showers - 3

Days with lying snow - 1

Thunderstorms - 1

Not a bad November overall.

November 2005 Summary for Cleadon, Tyne & Wear, using WMR928NX Professional Weather Station

Mean max: 9.6C

Mean min: 3.2C

First half: mean max 13.3, min 7.1

Second half: mean max 5.9, min -0.6 (!)

Highest max: 16.4C (3rd)

Lowest max: 2.6C (28th)

Highest min: 11.2C (3rd)

Lowest min: -3.7C (19th)

Air frosts: 10

Precipitation: 49mm

Falling sleet/snow: 3

Hail: 3

Lying snow: 0 (smattering on the 28th, but nowhere near enough to count by Met Office definition)

The month featured a mild unsettled first half, and a cold frosty second half. It was the sunniest November in the area since at least 1947, and probably for much longer, while it was also the coldest since 1998. The mean temperature of 6.4C was about a few tenths of a degree below the 1971-2000 mean.

The snow that fell in inland parts of the region early on the 16th was probably rain in Cleadon, but there were sleet/wet snow showers on the evening of the 17th, early on the 25th, and on/off throughout the 28th. Hail occurred on the 24th, 27th and 28th.

My "percentage rating system" saw this month average 65%, and to put that into perspective, the only other November to score above the mid-fifties was 1996, in 13 years of records. Certainly a November to remember.
