MAY 2022

May enjoyed the 3rd highest mean temperature in  67 years here, beaten only in 2017 and 2018. The mean min was the 2nd highest, and mean max 9th highest (in fact 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2022  are all in the top 9).
Much of the month had mean temperatures above average, except for the final few days. There were no ground frosts or air frosts, one of 10 years having neither during May.
Rainfall was 87% of normal, but was spread throughout the month, so 23 raindays, which ranks 3rd greatest number for May, but only 14 wetdays and 5 very wet days.
Half the month experienced at least 4 hours of "bright sunshine", with the longest daily sunshine over 11 hours recorded on the 13th, 14th and 27th. Windiest days were 10th  to 11th, 13th, 17th, and 25th to 27th.
