Abstract: Temperatures from the end of October until mid-November were well above average across most of Europe, and the highest in our records (since 1975) for the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. Such temperatures are beneficial to the development of the emerged winter crops. Conditions improved in Poland, Ukraine and Russia, where beneficial rains and higher temperatures provided relief from the difficulties reported in the previous bulletin. The preceding unfavourable germination conditions may yet have a knock-on effect on next year’s yields, depending on the winter and spring conditions to come. A large belt in central and eastern Europe is experiencing a period of rain scarcity, which has been beneficial for the sowing and emergence of winter crops. Most of these regions faced excessive rainfall during the first half of October. In southern Italy, torrential rain occurred at the end of October, prior to the sowing of winter crops. High positive rainfall anomalies have been recorded in the north-western United Kingdom, but not in crop-growing regions.
