All mean air temperatures for Autumn were above normal, with differences above average ranging from 1°C at Cork Airport to 2.2°C at Casement Aerodrome. All three months of the season recorded higher than normal temperatures, with November having the greatest differences above average. Most stations in the east and midlands reported Autumn 2011 as the warmest on record, with Phoenix Park reporting an Autumnal mean temperature of 12.2°C, its warmest in over 150 years. Mean air temperature differences in the south and southwest were less, but it was still the warmest in a number of years at Shannon Airport and Roche’s Point, both recording their warmest Autumns since 2001 (10 years) and 2006 (5 years), respectively. All remaining Atlantic coastal stations were above average for the season, but were not as warm as the Autumn of 2007.
