February 2014 - 'Warm, wet and sunny'

Postby Nick Gardner » 2014 Feb 24, 19:54

A beautiful late winter/early spring day with a maximum of 12.4°C today has helped to push up the mean temperature for this month:

(1st - 24th)
Mean minimum = 4.3°C
Mean maximum = 10.5°C
Mean = 7.4°C

Unless the temperature drops dramatically over the next few days this February will end up the warmest since 2011 (7.9°C), the one that followed that very cold December and cold January. The main difference is that February 2011 was a little drier than normal (71 mm) but also a dull month (53 hours).

This February has been much, much wetter than the average (130 mm so far) but also rather sunny at times with 92 hours (1st - 24th).

And with 4300 wind miles so far, it has been a blowy ol' month.
