Due to essential electrical work it is likely that the live weather conditions and recent weather graphs won't update at times between 8am and 6pm during the first 3 weeks of October. I apologise for any interruptions to data availability during this period. The weather forecast and rain radar pages are unaffected by this as these don't rely on mains power here in Teignmouth.

September 2019 proved to be warmer than average with a mean maximum temperature of 19.4C, 0.8C warmer than the long term (1981-2010) average. The mean minimum temperature was 12.9C, 1.2C above average. The highest air temperature measured during the month was 22.1C on the 12th. The lowest minimum air temperature was 8.4C on the 8th, and lowest grass minimum was 6.1C on the 8th. Therefore no ground or air frosts were recorded during the month.

September was much wetter than average with 103.4mm of rain recorded in my accurate 5 inch copper rain gauge, 180% of the average. My less accurate automatic Davis gauge recorded 113.4mm. The wettest day was the 23rd with 32.3mm collected in my copper gauge. Rain or heavy dew amounting to 0.2mm or greater occurred on 16 days with 10mm or more on 3.

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.
