Weather Statistics for Symi, Dodecanese, for December 2008

With so many enquiries regarding the weather on Symi at different times of the year I have installed a weather station at my farm which is located at the top edge of the Pedi Valley, about half way up the Vigla. It is quite a sheltered location so the wind strength readings are fairly conservative. If you would like to receive these graphs in a higher resolution than shown or any other information on the subject, please email me. I will put up the figures each month for the month preceding and hopefully we will be able to come up with a more accurate picture than the one currently based on the airport at Rhodes.

Outdoor temperatures recorded at my farm in the Pedi valley, Symi for the period 1 December 2008 to 1 December 2009. The red line is the outdoor temperatures and the green shows the dew point.
Barometric Pressure for the same period recorded at my farm on Symi.
Rainfall for the period 1 December 2008 to 1 January 2009 as recorded at my farm in the Pedi Valley, Symi. The software only allows for a maximum of 100 mm rainfall per month. We actually received 118 mm of rain in December which is why it has gone off the top of the chart!
Wind speed at the same location.  Gusts are shown in green and wind strength in red.

I can't read the scales on any of the graphs, but the 'onwards and upwards' progress of the rainfall graph looks rather alarming! At what point (either through choice or by necessity) will your farm be converted into a reservoir or swimming pool?

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
