Overall UK temperatures have been more than 2°C above the November average, while apart from a brief cold spell on 21- 23 November there has been an absence of frosts in almost all areas.

This has been due largely to a humid, cloudy south-westerly airflow, which has also meant very little sunshine in most areas. There have also been a number of very windy spells, including the impact of storms Abigail and Barney.
