The Year in Weather

A nerd's-eye view of what our little corner of Wiltshire has been like in 2020-21, and what it looks like today...

 

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. Temperatures across the last ten months have been, on average, 1.1°C warmer. Rainfall - when it arrives, it really arrives. But the 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. Stormy weather...
