Spring 2022

Spring 2022 will surprise people by being less than 1C above average in terms of the 1991 to 2020 average. Spring would have been even closer to average if it wasn't for May which strangely enough didn't offer anything in the way of major warmth or any cold weather either. However it came in well above average which pushed the overall average up. Overall Spring was the 3rd warmest on record. The Rainfall was below average making spring was a very dry one just sneaking into 10th place kicking 2005 off the list. Kicking Spring off with a generally average start and a wet one was March of course. The month came in a degree above normal helped along by very warm days which were 1.8C degrees above normal. Night time was a different matter coming in bang on average. The month featured five air frosts and the coldest night of winter and Spring with -2C being recorded on the 9th. The first seven days were around average with the nights making sure this was the case. This was also the wettest part of the month with 22.4mm of the final 47.4mm being recorded. By the 8th temperatures by day crept into double figures yet the 8th and 9th recorded the coldest nights of the month -1.9C and -2C respectively. However it soon warmed up and spell of spring weather more like early April followed from the 10th to the 15th. The warmest night of the month was within this period when 7.8C was the low on the 11th. A rare wet day on the 16th with 11.5mm of rain stopped the run of double figures for the day only. The real warmth started on the 22nd with upper teens been reached every day until the 26th. Despite being very warm by day the nights recorded two air frosts as temperatures dipped to -1.4C on the 21st and -1C on the 22nd. The 22nd brought the largest daily range for spring as temperatures rose to 18C and range of 19C. On the 24th temperatures peaked at 19.2C the warmest day of the month. The next two days recorded 18.4C and 18.1C. By the 27th temperatures dropped back to the mid teens and then winter returned on the 29th and by the 30th the coldest day of the month was recorded at 5.7C with Snow falling in the evening. The snow heavy enough to bring a brief cover and another air frost of -0.5C. The last few days making a small dint in the final averages for the month. Rainfall wise the month saw a period of 13 days without any measurable rain. In fact from the 13th to the 31st only 18mm of rain fell. Most of the months rainfall fell in the first four days with 22.2mm falling. The next time double figures was reached was 11.5mm on the 16th while the 11th provided 6.5mm and the 30th 5.2mm. Snow fell on the last two days to the end the month with a complete contrast to the warmth days before. March wasn't a windy month with winds not even reaching the 30mph so another quiet month in that regards. April was an average month in regards to temperature and yet another dry month. The month include some early summery like weather as well mid month so a month of contrasts again. April started on a chilly note with three air frosts on the trot as the cold air from March lasted for a few days. This period included the coldest day of the month the 1st with a high of only 7.7C the night saw temperatures fall to -0.5C. The second saw the coldest night when -1C was the low nearly matched by the following days as -0.9C was reached. This marked the end of air frosts for spring. Temperatures quickly rebounded reaching double figures by day by the fourth. Night time temperatures also recorded with the warmest night being on the 5th with 8.6C being the low followed by the second warmest night on the 6th with 8.4C being the low. The real warmth started from the 14th when 17.2C was reached with the 20 degree mark reached on the 15th and even warmer on the 16th with 20.7C being the high. although it cooled down a little after the 17th temperatures stayed well above normal before another cooler spell on the 27th which saw a brief return to single digit highs for a couple of days. From the twelve the night time temperatures showed very little in the way of variation with the warmest and coldest nights confined to the first twelve days. Some Snow fell on the 1st and 2nd and although the days warmed up the cold air aloft was enough to produce some sleet on the 7th and 8th. Rainfall wise apart from the 6th which saw 11.1mm very little rain fell. A period of 17 days from the 13th tot he 29th saw only 0.4mm of rain falling and the final total of 27.6mm was well below average. April was a breezy month with winds reaching over 40mph or more on three occasions with the highest gust 48mph on the 7th. May 2022 was a rather warm month. Previous May’s that had a average of 13C plus had temperatures hitting the mid seventies and even eighty degrees. Not this May though. The warmest day was the 14th when 23C was reached. This marked a period of four consecutive days where 21C was passed. The next warmest day was the 17th when 22.7C was reached. Mostly the temperatures stayed in the upper teens providing pleasant weather. The coldest day was the 3rd with 13.2C so not really cool. Night time temperatures didn't reach double figures until the 11th. The coldest night was 7C on the 1st not really cold at all really. The warmest night was the 23rd with 12.1C being the low. The period between the 15th to the 23rd saw all but one night stay in double figures and despite dropping back to single figures from the 25th they stayed above average. May managed to come in being the 5th warmest Month on record which again is impressive considering the lack of major highs and Lows Rainfall wise the month was another dry month with 12.4mm falling on the 15th the only notable wet period. The last day if the month produced the 4th highest rainfall with 2mm falling. The Sheffield area seem to pick the dry corridor while other areas had showers or even caught more major rainfall. This pattern lasted even when a slack area of low pressure resided over the country during the last few days of the month. So Sheffield is probably one of the dry areas away from the south east of England. Never a windy month and so continued the generally quieter weather we have these days. May in fact was the 2nd calmest May on record. Overall spring was the joint 1st calmest month on record.
