October was colder and wetter than average. Although very similar to October 2008, this year's October was colder, and the coldest since 1993. Daily maximum temperatures averaged only 12.5C. Almost all nights had cold minimum temperatures well below 10C and there were six air frosts, the coldest on the 27th with -3.9C. There were some sunny spells, specially in the second and third weeks when the exceptionally bright autumn colours gave a good show.

The total rainfall for October was 142.3mm, well above the average of around 90mm. This was the fifth month in a row with over 100mm, which has never occurred before in my records. There were some drier spells in the second and third weeks but the wet days were very wet indeed with over 10mm on seven days. Although there was a little snow in other places at the end of the month there was none in Scotby.
