Winter 2021/22

Winter 2021/22 was a mild winter with little in the way of Snow. You could argue that we simply moved from Autumn to Spring directly. The winter had average rainfall despite a very dry January which cancelled out the wet December leaving February with the deciding vote. The winter was generally quite only a few 50+ gusts were recorded and even hitting just 60mph.. The more astute people may notice a difference between the Stephenson values and the monthly reports b the Davis. This will be due to the monthly report using the sonic anemometer while the uses the analogue and also some gusts being missed by the software. This normally occurs when the system is downloading the data. After the Snow of November cold lovers started December hoping for a proper winter. However Snow fell only one two days and didn't produce any cover. the days in question being 6th and 25th. This meant we had a white Christmas. Sleet fell on three days the 7th and 8th and 26th. This was grand total of real wintry weather. The month saw some spring like weather from the 11th to the 16th and again at 29th to the 31st. The warmest days being 30th and 31st with 14C being the ridiculous highs. The 31st a warm night with 12.6C being the low. The coldest day was on the 2.7C on Christmas day. The month did produce four air frosts surprisingly. The windiest day was on the 1st with an average of 20mph at the time of recording and a peak gust of 52mph. Otherwise it was gusts into the 40's so not a particularly windy month. Storm Barra on the 6th and 7th only produced a gust into the 40's. The month ended on breezy note with 46mph being the highest gust on the 29th. Rainfall wise it was a wet month with the highest rainfall on the 8th with 16.8mm. 15.2mm fell on the 4th and 11.6, 12.2 on the 25th and 28th. Despite the spring like temperatures the month only ended up at 5.4C mainly due to the cool 1st then days then a cool spell from the 18th to the 26th. January was a average month temperature wise and dry month. The 5th driest on record. The month was a bore fest dominated by high pressure which normally means a cold month. However the positioning of the high over or just to the west kept any cold air to the east of us. The month kicked off spring like with temperatures peaking at 13.6C on the 1st. The warmest day of the month. The 1st was also the warmest night with 11.6C being the low. It soon turned colder from the 4th to the 7th which produced the only two days with Snow falling. The 6th and the 7th. However once again the Snow didn't lie. Temperatures recovered on the 8th with two spring like days again on the 17th and 18th with the joint second warmest day of 12C being reached. Temperatures dropped away with a couple of chilly days on the 24th and 25th when 3.5C was the high tying with the 4th for the coldest day of the month. We did manage 7 air frosts the coldest night on the 16th when the low was -1.2C. The period from the 26th to the 29th was again spring like double figures being reached every day with the second warmest day of 12C being reached on the 29th. The month was a dry one with only 2.1mm falling between the 9th and the 29th. The wettest days were the 7th and 30th with 4.7 and 4.6mm being recorded. The high pressure finally loosened it's grip with two storms storm Malik and storm Corrie. Malik on the 29th and Corrie on the 30th and 31st. Corrie produced two gusts which reached 51 and 50mph on the 30th and 31st. So Corrie just made storm status while Malik didn't really do anything of note and wasn't a storm here. February was a mild month and carried the more mobile Atlantic weather on for the most of the month. The month marked the return of strong winds something which has been lacking in recent years. It was a mild month and a very wet month becoming the third wettest on record. The month started on a mild note and cold snaps were literally snaps blink and you missed them. Spring like temperatures on the 8th, 15th and 16th were generally offset by poor weather conditions. The exception being the 8th when 13.2C was reached with sunny spells. Other notable very mild days were the 15th and 12th when 12C and 12.9C was reached. The cold snaps were limited to less than 34 hours which is why Snow only managed to fall on two days both leaving a slight dusting. Sleet fell on four days. The coldest day was on the 24th when 4.5C was the high which is very poor for February. The month was a windy the windiest since 2002 with the winds cranking up from the 15th to the 21st. Before that most of the top winds were in the mid forties this changed when we got to the 15th when 57mph was reached. The 16th produced 55mph and average wind of 28 mph and the time of measurement. A day of relative calm on the 17th with a high of 42 mph before 61mph was reached on the 18th. These were due to the storms Dudley and Eunice. In fact in the case of the Dudley on the 15th the strongest winds came before the storm itself with Dudley only producing max gusts of 49mph. However Dudley blew a tree nearby down where Eunice did some redecoration of the Sheffield Universities Hicks building. Eunice would have been more prolonged and worse but a development of a second centre meant Sheffield was for a time in the shelter of the low pressure before it moved east. Eunice produced the only Snow of the month as it departed into the north sea. Further windy weather on the 20th followed with the Met office be very slow to name the storm Franklin and only naming at the last minute. The warning were also again inconsistent with the storm bringing stronger winds to many areas but no red warnings issued. Rain and there was plenty of it brought Winter overall to just above average cancelling out the very dry January. The rainfall started ramping up on the 5th when 19.9mm of rain fell followed by 9.5mm of sleet the next day. A relative drive period followed from the 7th tot he 11th when only 0.5mm fall. The 13th saw 10mm and rain fell on the next 11 days with 17mm on the 17th, 16.8mm on the 19th and 37mm on the 20th. Just over 10mm fell in the days after. The wet period 19th to the 20th caused flooding as the Don burst it's banks combined with Council neglect adding to local flood issues. Heavy rain fell on the 28th adding to the already large amount of rainfall.
