2019 Annual Overview

Year's average temperature 12.17C Year's total precipitation 1526mm
Average over last decade 11.6C Average over last decade 1242mm

The figures above show that in Cerne Abbas, 2019 was slightly warmer than average while the total rainfall was well above the average over the last decade and compares with our wettest year on record (2012) when 1654mm. was recorded.

This year a relatively mild February and March was followed by a disappointing spring and start to the summer. However July and August had some pleasantly warm weather while for the rest of the year, temperatures were near to normal.

The rainfall during 2019 was well below average until August apart from a wetter than usual June. Then followed four months which were far wetter than average even though the period from October to January is usually our wettest time of year. This long spell of very wet weather resulted in the third highest annual total over the last twenty years.
