    Marginally colder and wetter, i think, but I was a bit confused with the "act" and "anom" readings.

    Actual is what it means and anomaly shows the difference of the actual to the 'average' of the years 1981-2010.
    Does that help?

    I'd say they're pretty accurate. We've had lots of rain in the Humber area, and less sun than normal for both October and November

    As the data shows, a fair bit of rain, but between the showers we've had a lot of sunshine. Been a decent autumn in Edinburgh, I do hate it when the gloomy weather sets in early on, feels like months of gloom to come.

    No surprises here. Colder, wetter and less sunny. Just so utterly miserable.
