Re: A wet January

... up to 28/0900Z, our total = 167 mm (~194% of eLTA 1981-2010) Nearby Hurn, up to 28/1800Z = 179 mm, already placing this January as second-wettest such-named month in their 1957+ record. With at least another 10 mm (probably more) to come in the next couple of days, the total looks set to approac...

Re: A mild December

... as now well-known, we've finished with December 2015 being notably (dramatically?) mild; the CET (350+ years record - early years/decades low resolution) looks to be 9.8degC (data to 30 DEC), which breaches the previous joint-record years' [1934 & 1974] value of 8.1degC by a large margin. Usuall...

Re: A mild December

The "Telegraph" today is already speculating on the "warmest December for 350 years" (presumably referring to the CET estimated record going back to c1650). Probably a bit early for that, but it may well be the case, given that the charts don't show any significant cold weather for the next 10 days...

Re: December 2015 - 'Warm & Dry'

... half-way through the month: 24hr mean temperature here = 11.3degC, which is +5.8C on the eLTA 1981-2010. No long-term records for my site to set this against: we only started here in 2007, but at nearby Hurn (circa 3.5 mi / 5.5 km to the SE of us), the latest mean (using SYNOP data) = 11.2, whic...
