November 2019 Commentary

November became the third very wet month in a row so that although this November's total rainfall was not quite as much as November 2018, the effect of three consecutive months with over 200mm meant that the land became saturated and each fresh downpour resulted in either deep puddles or rapid run-off.

November started relatively mild and again there was another brief mild spell later in the month but for the remainder, temperatures became very wintry with several frosty mornings.

The average temperature for November was 7.9C which is a little below the month's decade average while the total rainfall of 203.1mm (8 inches) compares with an average of around 150mm over the last ten years.

The autumn (taken as September, October and November combined) was the wettest this century with 627mm. Luckily the rainfall for the first eight months of 2019 were overall below average. This autumn's temperatures have overall been a little colder than usual.

Cerne Abbas can thank the Flood Warden and his helpers for preventing any serious flooding around the village although the river has been flowing very strongly on several occasions.
