Mean temperatures were well above the 1971-2000 normal for November, typically by between 1.5 and 2.5 °C over England and Wales and between 0.5 and 1.5 °C over Scotland and Northern Ireland. For the UK, provisionally November was the warmest since 2003 and ranks seventh in a series starting in 1914. There were very few days with air frost.
Almost all areas recorded well above average rainfall, with many having well over twice the normal amount. The wettest areas were Cumbria, Northumberland, the Scottish Borders and parts of Northern Ireland, mid-Wales and southern England. The exception was the far north of Scotland, where rainfall was slightly below normal. It was the wettest November over the UK in a series from 1914, provisionally some 25 mm wetter than November 1951.
Many areas received close to average sunshine. It was dullest in Wales, the Scottish Borders and parts of western and southern England, and brightest in northern Scotland and much of eastern England.
A maximum temperature of 18.5 °C was recorded at Hartpury College (Gloucestershire) on the 1st. A minimum temperature of -8.6 °C was recorded at Braemar (Aberdeenshire) and at Cromdale near Grantown-on-Spey (Moray) on 9th. In the 24 hours ending at 0900 on 20th, 236.6 mm of rainfall was measured at Seathwaite in Cumbria. On the 18th, a gust of 100 m.p.h. was recorded at Needles Old Battery on the Isle of Wight.
