2017 Weather Report

2017 was the ninth year of records for this weather station, and the seventh complete year in its current location in nw3.
On the whole, it was another warm year, with average rain and sun.
The big news this year was that I completely replaced the weather station with an upgraded model: A Davis VP2, in early Sept. So far it's been working great!

Weather Highlights:

  • Exceptional and extended Spring warmth: From late Feb to late Jun the mean temperature was 2.5C above the long-term average
  • June was the warmest ever, and included a record 5 day spell of maximum temperatures above 30C
  • For the 2nd year running, no month was more than 0.5C below average
  • Bone-dry April: Bested only by April 2011's 2mm, the 3mm in April '17 is our 2nd driest month ever, and just 6% of the expected total
  • Wet summer: Average rainfall for May-Aug was 56% above average (mostly due to several big falls). A welcome change after April
  • Interestingly, the year had only 145 days with measurable rain, a record low, despite the total rain being 6% above avg
  • Sunny January: Fourth year in a row above average, and included 4 days having their maximum possible sunshine
  • On the 10th Dec we had our first substantial snow in five years, with a nice 4cm covering.
