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.
