Tim writes quickly to get this article out,
The Met Office updated their areal datasets promptly this month end so I have been able to update my z-score derivation before the weekend passes.
November just gone was slightly dry, sunshine was a little above normal, max and mean temperature was normal, minimum was more noticeably low.
The dryness perhaps fits with the failure of the south westerly Atlantic airstream to deliver much in the way of autumn wind and rain storms across the whole country. If you look at the shape of the annual curves you will see we are around peak wet at this time of the year, yet this year we have have a lot of the dry east and north winds.
With that fits more sunshine. Less clear is why temperatures were normal except for minimums, night-times. Less than usual wind would play a part by allowing still air radiative cooling.
