Summer 2010 at Ferryhill
« on: Sep 21, 2010, 11:33 »
I thought it would be interesting to see how Summer 2010 (June-August) compared with previous years for temps and rainfall. The perception of the summer this year is average, but let's see how it looks against the rest of the recent ones.

Temperature (days over 20 degC)

2000    32 days
2001    40
2002    28
2003    56
2004    37
2005    35
2006    55
2007    33
2008    32
2009    40
2010    45

11 year Mean : 39 days

Mean Temp of Jun-Aug period

2000    14.8 degC
2001    15.4
2002    15.3
2003    16.9
2004    15.7
2005    15.3
2006    17.1
2007    15.3
2008    15.6
2009    15.7
2010    15.7

11 year Mean : 15.7 degC

Days with Rain

2000    54 days
2001    48
2002    49
2003    42
2004    60
2005    36
2006    37
2007    51
2008    59
2009    59
2010    42

11 year Mean : 49 days

Total Rainfall

2000    172.8 mm
2001    147.6
2002    201.2
2003    131.2
2004    298.2
2005      88.4
2006      95.0
2007    214.0
2008    242.8
2009    223.5
2010    132.8

11 year Mean : 177.0 mm

So, temperature-wise, Summer 2010 was about average for the last 11 years. Rain-wise, it had 7 less rainy days than average and about 45 mm less rain than average, 90mm less than in 2009. A slight improvement on last year then.
