The Storminess Record from Armagh Observatory, N. Ireland 1796-2002.

 

Introduction

 

Armagh Observatory was established in 1790 by Archbishop Richard Robinson. Robinson was the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Armagh (Butler and Hoskins 1987). Although the main focus of the Observatory was astronomy, daily meteorological records were kept from 1794, when the Observatory became operational. Only air temperature and barometric pressure were recorded during 1794 and 1795. From 1796 to 1843 wind direction was also recorded and a brief written daily weather comment was also included in the daily weather register. The daily description of weather included reference to storms and their effects. The only gap in the record is from mid-1825 to 1832 when no weather data was collected. In addition, no daily weather descriptions were recorded for 1883. From 1844 to the present there is also wind strength data, mostly instrumental but also some observer data. This makes this dataset the longest ongoing weather record on the island of Ireland.

 

The Observatory is located on top of a drumlin on its own site of approximately 14 acres. The Observatory although located on the edge of Armagh city is still predominantly surrounded by farmland and the playing fields of a number of schools. The city has grown in size from around 7,000 to 15,000 people over the study period and is highly dispersed and low density. A study by Coughlin and Butler (1998) showed the effects of urbanisation on the mean air temperature at the Observatory were minimal. However, the one threat to the quality of the wind data from the Observatory was the growth of trees around the main building. This led to the original cup anemometer on the roof of the Observatory to be abandoned in favour of the more suitable site of the Back Lawn where the current meteorological site is located. This paper will examine the weather diary record of storms in Armagh from 1796 to 1999 and the instrumental/observation record from 1844-1999 and will highlight some of the difficulties in assembling such chronologies, even from one site.

 

The weather diary record from 1796-1999.

 

This data was abstracted from the daily weather diary. From the earliest weather diaries the recording of storms seems to have been a key component of the description (Appendix 1). The definition of a storm used was the use of the words ÔtempestŐ, ÔstormŐ or ÔgaleŐ in the written description. The description must clearly indicate that this event was not a gust, thunderstorm or snowstorm and that the wind was sustained for a length of time. Table 1 contains a brief list of some of the most noteworthy storms that have affected Armagh as recorded in the weather diaries.

Analysis of the weather diary record.

 

The annual incidence of storms from the descriptive record at Armagh from 1796 to 2000 was plotted and fitted with a 10 year running mean (Fig. 1). Relatively high numbers of storms were recorded from 1796 to 1825 and 1835 to 1844 and it is assumed that the time period between would also contain relatively high numbers of storms (Appendix 2). Three years have more than 30 storms and this includes 1796 with 31. This block of relatively high numbers of storms can be associated with increased storminess symptomatic of the Little Ice Age that probably extended up to end of the 18th century and into the 19th century (Grove 1988). The Little Ice Age was by no means a completely cold period with years of relatively high temperatures as well as periods of cold, storms and disturbed weather. From 1845 to 1910 relatively few storms were recorded at Armagh, typically less than 5 per annum.

 

A change occurs in the 1890Ős with an increase in the numbers of storms being recorded associated with a decline in temperatures. This also coincides with LambŐs (1991) assessment that the 1890Ős was probably the stormiest decade of the 19th century. From 1911 until 1958 there is a generally rising number of storms being recorded. This includes the exceptional year of 1950 when 35 storms were recorded. There is a decline in the number of storms from 1960 to 1976 and this is followed by a pulse of increased numbers of storms being recorded until 1985. This includes 1982, the stormiest year on record with 36 storms. This is followed by a sharp decline in the number of storms being recorded up to and including 1999. This trend has continued in 2000 and 2001.

 

There is a very clear monthly distribution of gales for Armagh (Fig. 2). Most gales occur in the Winter half of the year most notably January and December (Appendix 3). There is a decline in gales towards the summer half of the year with very few gales occurring from April to August inclusive but all months record some gales.

 

There is also significant variations in the seasonal distribution of gales from the weather diary (Appendix 4). The Winter (December, January, February) gales plot shows relatively high numbers at the start of the record from 1796 up to the 1840's (Fig. 3). Low number of Winter gales are recorded up until the early 1900's with the exception of a few years in the 1890's. This is followed by a period of relatively high numbers of gales particularly in the 1920's and 1930's and early 1980's. There has been a decline in gales from the mid 1980's onwards. This pattern mirrors the annual totals as would be expected with most gales occurring in Winter. The pattern for Spring (March, April, May) gales is similar to that of the Winter and Annual pattern with mini peaks of gales in 1796, 1800,1821, 1948, 1964-1965, 1968 and 1985 (Fig. 4). The Summer (June, July, August) gales plot is different to this pattern as there is a noticeable cluster most of gales in the 1950's and 1960s with a very exceptional 8 gales in the Summer of 1951 (Fig. 5). The Autumn (September, October, November) gales pattern reverts back to the Winter, Spring and overall pattern (Fig. 6). 

 

One potential weakness with this record is that of observer bias. Work is still ongoing at Armagh in an attempt to identify the meteorological observers and the time periods they covered and so test for bias.

The observational/measured record from 1844-1999.

 

The observational/measured record is a much more complex series consisting of six components which have been combined together. The first two components cover the period from 1844 to 1882 and are not directly compatible with the rest of the chronology in a strict methodological sense. The remaining four components from 1883 are relatively easily converted to a single standardised format.

 

a) Component 1: 1844 January 1 to 1860 March 3.

 

The data here appears to be based on an early version of the Beaufort land scale to which actual wind speed was added (Table 2). As a result a gale is defined as force 8 but the given miles per hour is only 24mph (1mph =0.87 knots). The effect of using this scale was the over-recording of gales and their strength. As a result only gales that were given as force 12 or force 12+ were used. This would still include a small number of events that would not be classified as gales today. The data was based on twice-daily observation of wind speed and direction, recorded from the anemometer located on the roof of the Observatory. A further minor complication is that prior to 1st April 1852 astronomical time was used, after this date standard Irish Civil Time (Dublin Time) was used. Astronomical time starts at noon as opposed to midnight. All the data in this component has been corrected to civil time.

b) Component 2: 1860 March 26 to 1882 December 31.

 

Component 2 consists of the total number of miles (1 mile =1.609km) travelled by the anemometer cup in a 12-hour period (Table 3). Clearly it is very difficult to interpret this data in the context of the overall chronology as the minimum miles travelled to guarantee a gale is 39 and the maximum is 565. Obviously the more miles travelled in a 12-hour period the more likely it is that a gale has occurred. An arbitrary figure of 450 miles travelled was chosen to indicate when gales might have occurred. This was checked against a small amount of hourly data that is available for Armagh from 1874-1882. This showed that the 450 miles travelled was an adequate threshold to use as it picked up two gales that occurred during this time period.


 

It must be noted that two additional 12-hour periods which had totals in excess of 450 miles also occurred, but which were not recorded as gales in the hourly data. Both had sustained periods of high winds. This at least indicates that no gales will be missed using the 450 mile threshold, but that there is likely to be some over-recording of gales. When this threshold is applied to the period from 1860 to 1873 a further seven possible gales can be identified (Table 4). This part of the chronology is based on twice daily observation of wind speed and direction, recorded from the anemometer located on the roof of the Observatory.

Component 3: 1883 January 1 to December 31.

 

The data comes from a separate instrumental hourly time series from the Automatic Weather Station that was in operation. The normal twice daily observations appear not to have been taken or recorded during this year. A gale in this component is designated as 53mph. This is as a result of the correction of the calibration of the Robinson Cup Anemometer which over recorded wind strength by 4/15 or a reduction in the calibration applied to the raw data from 3.0 to 2.2. This calibration correction applies to all measured wind speed using the Robinson Cup Anemometer from 1904 backwards in time. If the earlier data is not recalibrated then the number, duration and strength of gales are dramatically and erroneously increased.

 

Component 4: 1884 January 1 to 1919 December 31.

 

The data are based on a modified Beaufort scale using knots where a gale is given as Beaufort force 6 which is given as 34 knots (Table 5). This part of the data set is based on twice-daily observations of wind speed and direction. Any data from 1884 to 1904 was recalibrated as outlined above.

Component 5: 1920 January 1 to 1958 December 31.

 

This is a standard Beaufort scale where a gale is equal to Force 8 or 39 mph (Table 5). The data are as a result of twice-daily observations of wind speed and direction from the back lawn of the Observatory.

 

Component 6: 1959 January 1 to 1999 December 31.

 

This is a standard Beaufort scale where a gale is 37 knots which is the mid-point of Beaufort Force 8 when using knots (Table 5). The data are based on twice-daily observations of wind speed and direction from the back lawn of the Observatory. From 7th March 1965 onwards the data is based on once a day observation at 0900 GMT.

 


 

Analysis of the instrumental/observational record

 

The instrumental/observational days with gale record was plotted from 1844 to 1999 and fitted with a 10-year running mean (Fig. 7). This includes the data from 1844 to 1883 which although not directly comparable with the remainder of the data set has been included as outlined in the methodology described above. Four distinct periods of increased occurrence of days with gale can be identified. These are 1884 to 1905, 1917-1919, 1947 to 1964 and 1977 to 1991 Since 1993 no gales have been recorded at Armagh at the 0900 GMT observation. Clearly, from the data there is a quasi-cyclical occurrence of increased numbers of days with gales with a mean cycle of 31 years or 27 years if the less prominent increase in days with gales from1868 to 1874 is included.

 

The second item to note is the spike of increased days with gales during 1918 and 1919, these were the two highest individual years with 24 and 12 gales respectively. The only other year that comes close to this number of gales being recorded is 1982 when 12 gales were observed. Clearly this anomaly is worthy of further research. A check of other Irish meteorological stations showed that some had the spike and some did not (Table 6). The spike is clearly evident at Belmullet, is evident only in 1918 at Malin Head, and evident only in 1919 in the two most southerly stations at Roches Point and Valentia; it is not present at Donaghdee. It is not clear what caused this dramatic increase in the number of days with gales being recorded. It is also possible to speculate that the spread of the influenza virus that killed in excess of 20 million people during this time period may have been aided by increased storminess.

There is a very clear monthly distribution of gales for Armagh similar to that of the weather diary, but there are some differences (Fig. 8). Most gales occur in four months only from November to February (Appendix 6). There are relatively low numbers of gales for the remaining eight months of the year from March to October inclusive with gales being recorded for every month of the year.

There is also significant variations in the seasonal distribution of gales from the instrumental/observational data from 1884 to 2000 (Appendix 7). The Winter (December, January and February) gales plot shows relatively high numbers in the early 1900's, the 1920's the late 1950's, the early 1980's and the early 1990's. This is a slightly different pattern to that from the weather (Fig. 9). Low number of Winter gales are recorded from 1907 to 1917, the 1930's, the 1940;s, surprisingly the 1960s, the 1970's and most of the 1990's. This pattern to some extent mirrors the annual totals as would be expected with most gales occurring in Winter.

 

The pattern for Spring (March, April and May) gales is similar to that of the Winter and Annual pattern but with much lower numbers of gales. This plot is noticeable for the exceptional value of 7 gales in the Spring of 1919 as discussed earlier (Fig. 10). The Summer (June, July and August) gales plot just shows the occasional gale one summer in every ten or so on average (Fig. 11). The Autumn (September, October and November) gales pattern reverts back to the Winter, Spring and overall pattern but with 12 gales recorded in Autumn 1918 three times higher than the next highest Autumn total (Fig. 12).

Comparison of the two records of storminess at Armagh Observatory

from 1884 to 1999.

 

As a result of the differences of the two methodologies in generating the storm chronologies it would be exceedingly unlikely that the two records would match numerically but that they should match in terms of the trends. The weather diary dataset would be expected to produce more gales/storms as it covers the whole day and not just one or two specific measurements per day. At the annual level there is a strong similarity for most of the record (Fig. 13). The only periods when the match is relatively poor is 1896 to 1908 and the spike years of 1918 and 1919. In both these cases there was more observation of gales than that recorded in the weather diary. This indicates that the meteorological observer was failing to record storms in the daily weather diary.

 

A similar pattern emerges when the 10-year running mean of the two chronologies are compared (Fig. 14). The exception is the period from 1922 to 1936 when the observation record shows a rising incidence of storms, whereas the weather diary shows a declining incidence of storms. The peaks in gale/storm incidence in the 1950Ős and 1980Ős are clearly shown as the intervening trough in the 1960Ős. The decline in gales/storms in the 1990Ős is evident in both records.

 

Long and short term changes in storminess

 

The long term trend in storminess in Armagh as identified in the two different records was calculated using a linear regression. This was also compared with linear regressions from the three west coast stations at Valentia, Belmullet and Malin Head (Table 7). The regressions at the 95% confidence level show that the Armagh and Valentia records show no significant tend although the Valentia hourly shows an increase of 1 gale per year every 14 years. Belmullet shows a decline of 1 gale every 5 years over the length of record, whereas, Malin Head shows an increase of nearly 1 gale every 3 years. There is no overall pattern for these four stations.

In order to examine the recent changes in storminess in Armagh over the 30-year period from 1970-1999 linear regressions of the two different measures of storminess were calculated. Again this was compared with linear regressions from the three west coast stations at Valentia, Belmullet and Malin Head (Table 7). This shows some very different results in comparison with the overall regression figures. Armagh and Valentia show a decline in the number of gales being recorded of the order of 1 every 5 to 7 years, whereas Belmullet shows an increase of nearly 1 gale every 3 years and Malin Head showing an increase of nearly 1 gale every year. This indicates an overall pattern of the south and east receiving fewer gales and the north and west receiving more gales, possibly, indicating a northward shift in storm tracks, which Armagh Observatory because of its low gale environment is not yet picking up. This is supported by the only other published storm chronology for Ireland which is for Dublin from 1715-1999 (Sweeney, 2000). A decadal comparison between the Dublin record and the two Armagh record shows substantial similarities, but also some differences (Fig. 15).

 

As a result of incomplete decadal totals, it is only possible to do the comparison from the 1840Ős onwards. From 1840 until the early part of the 20th century relative low levels of storms are being recorded. For the next 40 years the Dublin record more closely resembles the Armagh instrumental/observation record, even in terms of numbers of storms being recorded. From the 1960Ős onwards the Dublin record more closely resembles the description record in terms of the general trend, but the actual numbers of storms are very different. The comparison also suggests that there is a decadal lag between Dublin and Armagh in terms of peaks and troughs. The decade with the most storms in Armagh is the 1950Ős whereas in Dublin it is the 1960Ős. 

 

Conclusions

 

Very significant variations in storminess have been recorded over the last 200 years for Armagh observatory despite the sheltered inland nature of the site. This includes evidence for increased storminess at the end of the Little Ice Age. However, there is no evidence of increased storminess over the last 30 years. When similar records from other Irish stations are examined, there is some evidence of a possible northwards movement of the storm tracks that have affected the island of Ireland over the last 30 years.
