The start of the new meteorological year was warm with normal rainfall.
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, 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 Sunshine is of least interest in the winter months which means chart C above is now for Frost and the odd one out is Sunshine 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.
