Weather Statistics for January 2009

The following charts are recorded from the weather station at my farm at the top of the Pedi valley on the island of Symi and cover the period from 1-31 January 2009.  A total of 288 millimetres of rain fell that month.

Outdoor temperatures - the green line shows the dew point, which dropped to freezing twice during the month.  January was abnormally warm this year with midday temperatures in the high teens, mainly due to the same southerly winds which are also responsible for the high rainfall.
The green line shows the gusts, the red the average wind speeds.  As you can see, we experienced winds up to 45 km/ph several times during the month. 
If anyone would like more information on these statistics, please email me.

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.
