Meteorological Autumn arrives today, Sunday

Saturday: maximum of 20.9C being exactly average
minimum of 9.1C being 2.4C below average
sunshine of 7.2 hours

August: rainfall of 81.6mm just overtaken by evaporation of 82.3mm

Sunday began the first day of meteorological autumn with hazy sunshine initially but by 08.00 the cloud bank had eased eastwards and the sun became strong

Hurricane Dorian currently has an extremely low barometric pressure of 934mb. The lowest I have recorded since 1984 was in March 2008 with 962.5mb, stormy but far removed from the effects of Dorian.

Update on Sunday at 15.10: wind now backed from south west into north west so Polar Maritime air arriving – cooler but clearer air.
