The Year In Weather

The Sun and The Rain...

How has the weather been in Quidhampton this year? And what is it looking like across the meadows today?

Above and below, you can find some data on how warm it's been, and how wet. So far - the answer is both, but 2021 is proving to be a mixed bag. Temperatures across the last twelve months have been, on average, 0.5°C warmer, but we have had, so far, a very cold April 2021 and a very cold and wet May (in comparison to May 2020, in which a mere 1mm of rain fell the entire month). The extreme peaks are few and far between, as you can see. This seems to be the trend we are seeing, globally, something that was being talked about 30 years ago. October had all of its monthly rainfall - in just the first three days of the month and went on to more than double the seasonal average. August and December were also particularly wet months.
