Winter here:

Mean maximum = 9.9°C
Mean minimum = 2.6°C
Mean = 6.3°C

Rain = 165.7 mm
Sunshine = 317.3 hours

Air frosts = 25.

A very sunny, benign winter that was drier than normal with the mean temperature around average. There were a rather high number of air frosts though most of those were slight.

Another snowflakeless winter.
