From the 1st week it gradually cooled down to average with some chilly nights around the 10th. The last week of the month it has warmed up so that we have had temperatures in the low 20’s.

Looking ahead to October it is looking unsettled with periods of rain crossing the country but it will be mild for the initial 2 weeks. Winds will be coming from the south or south west. There is also potential for some very warm weather around the 10th into the mid 20’s.
