April 2019 is the first uninteresting month of the 2019 meteorological year in the UK. Everybody got excited about the warmest Easter on record but the rest of the month couldn’t be bothered and so dragged the monthly averages down.
The meteorological year starts in December which is why December appears as the 1st data point in the charts below. More information on the layout of the charts can be found in this post. Points lying between the upper and lower deciles are shown as open black circles, points lying between the deciles and minimum/maximum are shown as solid black circles and any month with a new record is shown as solid black squares.
As I explained in October 2018, the addition of a Temperature Range chart (B) means I now have 7 charts to I update every month so I will rotate which 6 appear in the deck above and plot the 7th as a separate chart. I stated that Frost is of least interest in the summer months which means chart C above is for Sunshine and Frost in chart G here.
PS: If you bookmark this link, it will be refreshed with the latest month’s data. I usually post the update in the first week of each month.
