October was a mild month with a normal amount of rainfall. The average maximum temperature was 15C, about 1C warmer than the average for October. The warmest day was 16th with a high of 20.1C. There have been other Octobers with a higher maximum but the 16th was a very strange day with warm, very strong winds and atmospheric dust from the Sahara, which, together with smoke pollution from Spain, created a surreal, orangey-red sun and strange skies. There were two air frosts in October a slight one on the 29th and -2.2C on the 30th. These were the first frosts of the autumn.

The total rainfall for October was 98.6mm, which is close to the 30 year average in Scotby. The wettest day was the 11th with a total of 27.2mm. There was rain on all but 7 days in Scotby with the driest period coming during the last week.

Mena min 9.8 + 2.6c
Mean 12.2 +1.9c

So mild and on the dry side - but more rain fell on the 11th than did in the whole of October 2016, and the total this month was greater than the combined total from 2015 and 2016.
