Friday was the mildest day of December to date with the daytime temperature reaching 12.6°C. Even more surprising the over night temperature Thursday into Friday only fell to 10.4°C very mild for the middle of December. 
The rain in the early hours of the morning amounted to 5.6mm bringing the monthly total up to 17.2mm around 50% of what we might expect by the middle of the month.

The mildest December in the last 25 years was in 1988 and at the moment this year is on a par with that record.
Rather strangely to beat that record the temperatures for the rest of the month will need to stay around the same or be slightly milder than the first half of the month.
