The 29th was an unusually cold day for September with maxima barely reaching double figures in many places. Hereford recorded a maxima of just 7C that day and temperatures fell further and sleet was reported as low down as 800ft in the Black mountains, while above 2300ft it was six inches deep in places.

The CET for the month was 11.9, so it was a very cool and exceptionally wet month.
