Weather log summer 2009-10

No warm spell this summer matched that of late November, which had four days over 40°. There was only one 40° day all summer. By February there were no warm spells.
Summer began hot and very dry, with clear skies and low humidity. Year’s end saw days of rain, low cloud and extremely high humidity. In mid-January the air was again very dry, but cool.

The mean daily maximum temperature was normal, but the mean minimum (18.7°) was the highest in eleven summers. The number of nights warmer than 20° (34) is also the highest, nearly twice the usual number.
The total rainfall of 190 mm is below the long-term summer average of 225 mm. It is in the 42nd percentile.
At 42% cloudy mornings, this summer was very cloudy, but not extremely cloudy like the summer of 2007-08 (53%). These summers shared the record for completely overcast mornings, with 18 each.
