November 2017 precipitation

Here are my best estimates for precipitation totals for the British Isles and across parts of northwest ern Europe for November 2017 I garner from the SYNOPs.

Figure 1

Another dry month for November in parts of the south and east, with Shoeburyness recording just less than 20 mm for the month. Meanwhile Capel Curig recorded just over 300 mm, but if you thought that was wet then the totals in Southwest Norway in excess of 450 mm put that into perspective (fig 1). It’s a shame that the Met Office don’t make available any daily or monthly totals from SEPA for gauges in the NW Highlands, which I would have matched those in Norway (more on that next).
