The first month of the autumn calendar was sunny in southern Europe with the monthly mean cloudiness not exceeding 50%. However the rest of Europe has experienced the onset of autumn and therefore more cloudiness. This is related to the increase of low-level clouds and cyclonic activity, with the mean cloudiness reaching 60-80%, and even above 90% in the north-west part/North Atlantic.
