January 2019 February 2019 March 2019


January was statistically cooler and drier than normal. Temperatures switched from pleasantly mild to cold and frosty several times during the month, and most rainfall was in the second half of the month. 

Air frosts 2nd-5th, 10th, 17th-18th, 23rd-24th, and 28th-31st.  Wettest days were 8.1mm on 16th and 9.7mm on 29th, with hardly any rain between 1st and 15th.  Quite windy at times on 27th and 13th, less so 8th, 12th and 26th.

So quite a varied month overall. It felt pleasantly mild at times, but bitterly cold at others. No monthly records were broken, most parameters ranking midway in the 64 years of records held.

A very mild February, sharing the record for highest mean temp of 7.1C with 1998. Temperatures rose steadily throughout the month, peaking on 26th. The only air frosts were in the first 5 days of the month.  Rainfall overall was normal for the month, but virtually all of it fell between 4th and 10th, after which it remained dry until 28th.  The sunniest days were 14th-16th and 21st-27th, dullest were 5th, 8th and 28th.

Growing and cultivating the soil was unseasonably pleasurable for the second half of the month.

Winter was statistically the 6th mildest, but while Dec and Feb were much milder than normal, while Jan was slightly cooler.
Rainfall was normal overall, but varied, as Dec was very wet, Mar normal and Jan drier than usual.

March statistically has been a mild and wet month, although the first half was cool, wet, and windy at times with some fairly sunny days, while the second half pleasantly mild, very sunny, calmer and dry.
The mean temp of 8.0C was 1.5deg above normal, the 6th highest equal in 64 years here. Consequently there were only 10 ground frosts (just 12 years have had fewer, many of these in the last decade), and no air frosts (only 3 years have now experienced this, in 1981, 2012 and this).
This was the 8th wettest March (156% normal), beaten from 1979 to 1982, also 2013, 2016 and 2018. Moreover, this nearly all fell in the first half of the month.
No snow was seen here, although some fell a few miles away on higher ground. There was a brief hailstorm at midday on 17th .
So a varied month, but finishing far more spring-like than it began!
