OCTOBER 2023

A mild October overall, mildest up to 11th then below normal after that. Two ground frosts on 15th and 16th

Two very dull and wet days on 13th and 20th. Significant rainfall 10th-13th when 75mm fell, and 17th 20th when 89mm fell, with saturated ground. Greatest daily rainfall was 36.4mm on 19th, 34.2mm on 12th, 31.6mm on 18th

There were some more pleasant sunnier spells from 7th-9th and then 14th-17th  when clear night skies produced the frosts.  So some respite from the rain. 


Quite windy too, especially at the beginning of the month.
So not the nicest gardening weather, but nothing needed watering!
