October 2008 will be remembered as being relatively mild and wet – even though rainfall was slightly below normal – a continuation of similar weather which really began in August.
Daytime highs were average or slightly above average but at no point during the month did the temperature hit 20 C or higher – which is unusual.
Overnight lows were cool especially toward the end of the month when they dipped below the freezing point.
