Let’s cast an eye back over September.
We have statistics up to 26th and it was pretty decent up to the 23rd - fine and unseasonably warm with 143 hours of sunshine, that’s 8% more than the average for the whole of the month.
Then on the 24th & 25th , in came the lowest low for thirty years which brought all the rain and localized flooding. The whole of the Midlands received 81.2mm rain up to 26th September, giving us 23% more than the whole of the monthly average for rainfall… and there’s more to add to this cumulative total once we’ve tallied in the last 4 days.
So we see that it was only the last week of September that really pulled up those rainfall totals.
For the rest of today, the first day of October, it will continue bright and breezy, odd showers clipping the N & W of the Midlands, cloudier further S & E. Highs around 16c 61f.
This evening, clear, any showers dying away. It should be dry overnight, lows 7c 45f, lively winds.
