September 2018 proved to be a little warmer than average with the mean maximum temperature of 19.1C, 0.5C above the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 11.7C, exactly average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 23.9C on the 9th. The lowest minimum air temperature during the month was 4.3C on the 25th, and lowest grass minimum temperature was 2.8C recorded on the 25th.

August was a little drier than average and September was a little wetter with 61mm of rain recorded in my accurate 5 inch copper rain gauge, 106% of the average. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 63.2mm. The wettest day was the 22nd when 36.7mm was recorded in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater was recorded on 10 days during the month with 10mm or more on 2 days.

The tables above show weather conditions recorded by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station sited in Teignmouth, South Devon. They are usually updated every 10 minutes. All times are Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so add one hour for British Summer Time (BST).

* Air temperature is measured 1.9m above ground level and the anemometer is just 2.2m above ground level in a NNW/SSE oriented valley. The wind direction is therefore heavily biased towards either the up or down valley direction and the anemometer is very sheltered from the prevailing westerly flow by higher ground directly upstream. The thermistor that measures grass tip temperature only has a resolution of 1 degree Fahrenheit and this has been automatically converted into Celcius to the nearest 0.1 degrees. A grass temperature of < 0°C indicates the occurrence of a ground frost (air temperature < 0°C indicates an air frost). The leaf wetness sensor monitors the level of surface moisture on foliage and hence the occurrence of dew, fog, drizzle, rain etc. Soil moisture is measured in centibars (cb) [0-10cb = saturated soil, 10-30cb = ground adequately wet, 30-100cb = ground needs irrigating to maintain maximum production, 100-200 cb = ground dry. ]. The strength of the sun's ultraviolet radiation is expressed as a UV index and was developed by the World Health Organization. As a guide 0-2 = low, 3-5 = medium, 6-7 = high, 8-10 = very high, 11+ = extreme. You can safely stay outside if UV is low, and it is recommended that you wear sunscreen if levels are moderate or higher, and seek shade if levels are high or above. In Teignmouth UV levels reach 7 in mid-summer and may reach 8 on exceptional days.
