Making Its Mind Up

Wednesday morning started off beautifully sunny if still a little bit on the nippy side but by lunch time the sunshine had given way to cloud. We had some light wintry showers in the afternoon.

My early March weather station report makes for interesting but rather dodgy reading for gardeners ready to get their seeds sown and the new season under way.

The figures are a summary of the temperatures for the first three months of the year. Of particular interest are those areas shaded light blue with those on the left giving the mean (maximum, minimum and average) temperatures for each month (MO) whilst those on the right highlight the actual maximum and  minimum values in the month and the day they occurred. 
March at the moment is colder than February and our warmest day of the year was on 29 January. What a mixed up year so far. Here’s hoping the weather will soon get its act together and spring will finally arrive.

  1. I'm just hoping that we get a summer this year. I'm betting on rain this afternoon as the window cleaner has just arrived and it always rains as soon as they leave.

    1. Dry until Sunday according to the forecast but I don't doubt getting the windows cleaned more than likely means some rain this afternoon.
