Last Months Report

December was near average month once again in regards to temperature. Rainfall was also above average due to a wet first 8 days and a wet end to the month. Another a quiet month with only one named storm this was Barra which provided some sleet but otherwise didn't really have any effect on the region. It was also a record breaking one. The month started on a chilly note with temperatures well below normal for the first 10 days. Despite this we recorded zero air frosts and grounds frosts weren't particularly noticeable. The temperatures got close to freezing on the 2nd, 3rd and again on the 8th. The weather turned milder on the 11th to the 16th with double digits temperatures by day. This period recorded the third highest temperature of the month at 13C. This normal would be enough to be the highest for the month however the weather had other ideas. The night of the 13th would normally be the warmest night of the month as temperatures remained at 9.6C through the 24hr period, again the weather had different ideas. The mild spell finally ended due a temperature inversion by the 17th when fog and cloud rolled in. This marked the end of bonus sunny spells as each day forecast cloud but in the end the sunshine prevailed. The inversion brought the first major ground on the 18th and then the first air frost of the month on the 19th. It also stopped the month going above average for the first time. It turned colder for a short while from the 17th to the 22nd before it turned milder on the 23rd and 24th. Cold air returned for Christmas day this being joint coldest day of the month as 2.9C being the high this matching the 2.9C on the 21st. Despite the cold air returning cloud and rain stopped any really cold nights so the 19th remained the coldest night with -1.1C being the low. Temperatures recovered from boxing day with it turning warm to close the year off with double record breaking figures recorded again on the 30th and 31st. The values reached were 14C on both days a new record. Night time wasn't going to get away without a new record this being 12.6C on the 31st. The month started on a wet note with the period from the 1st to 8th. Barra produced 15.2 mm overnight of the 4th into the 5th which wasn't a notable amount. The 8th and 9th produced 24mm of rain with 16.8mm falling on the 8th. 7.5mm fell on the 13th. The next 10 days had smaller amounts of rain with the met office saying the weather was dry while the rainfall was topped up by drizzle via foggy conditions. Rainfall amounts started climbing again from the 24th as 7.4mm fell. As cold air got dislodged 11.6mm fell overnight of the 25th with another 3.4mm added on boxing day. More heavy rain on the 27th brought 6.3mm however this was split over the recording time and a further 12.2mm was added on the 28th bringing the month to 100mm plus. rainfall amounts after this were small but December was the third month of the year to record over 100mm of rainfall. The month recorded the first Snow of the winter on the 6th although this didn't settle. Interestingly the met office got the event the wrong way round and instead of a snow to rain event we got a rain to snow. The Snow did settle over the moors however sleet and rain removed it fairly quickly. All interest for weather watches came before Christmas as Models kept showing a cold wintry spell of weather for this only to disappear a several days before Xmas and then a a short two day cold snap was re-introduced a day before Christmas Eve. This actually managed to produce a white Christmas as flurries of snow during the day interspersed with some light rain followed by some more general snow before midnight. It produced a wet covering on cars which were still there despite heavy sleet in the morning. Never really a windy month with gusts only just hitting the 40's we did have some breezy days with 20 mph average being recorded on the 20th and 15mph on the 10th. Average wind speeds did get higher than this during the days concerned however really nothing out of the ordinary for the time of year. The month registered a rare freezing fog in the early part of Sunday morning on the 19th. Fog and mist was the feature of the weather from the 17th as the weather became general grey and uninspiring. January looks set to start on a warm note and feeling spring like as temperatures rose to double digits. The spring like weather doesn't look like it will last long as colder conditions arrive by the 4th and 5th. It soon turns mild though until the middle of the month when it turns very cold from the north the month the cold spell lasting a short while before high pressure builds over the UK and drifts slowly east introducing cold dry conditions from the continent. The high pressure forms a block and there likely to be periods of Snow as mild air tries to push in from the south west. Towards the end of the month mild air returns from the Atlantic. The mild start is likely to be strong enough to offset any cold weather so temperatures around normal. Rainfall just below normal while there 's likely to be more Snow around than would be expected from a month with average temperatures.
