I recorded the lowest October temperature since before 2005 and completely trounced my previous lowest October minimum of -2.2C (21st October 2010).
Last night’s minimum was -4.3C. I frequently have recorded entire years where the temperature never gets that low.
It was exceptional, especially given that October frosts are fairly rare (the last one being in 2010). But a beautiful day ensued with unbroken sunshine yet again and a maximum of 11.2C.
Going off chilly again! Could be another humdinger.
