A windspeed of 55mph was recorded at 11pm Tuesday November 24 – the highest local gust since January 2007.

And the average wind speed for November to the time of writing (26th) was 8.3mph, which is 25 per cent higher than the local average.

The recorded rainfall of 101.7mm was already 44% above the average for the entire month while 52.3 hours of sunshine was 82% of the average.

Temperatures were above “normal”, with the maximum average of 11.9C being 2.3C higher and the minimum of 6.3C being 2.8C above average.

Early December may be changeable with frequent rain showers but a little on the cold side after recent mild conditions. The outlook towards Christmas is difficult to predict, probably changeable and below or near normal temperatures.
