Monthly Weather Summary

MAY  -   despite being much drier than average it was a poor month. Whilst generally a quiet month, it was much cooler than average with the number of ground frosts above average and numerous days failing to attain 10°c. It was often dull, especially at both ends of the month. The best period of the month was 12-16th when we had a brief warm and sunny spell and it was generally dry during 11-24th, but this was little consolation to the cool and cloudy conditions that prevailed.

Driest since 2010 and the second driest of twelve recorded - MSLP was +2.1 Mb above average, rainfall 37.1% of the average for 2008-18 and the temp' was 1.16°c below average (2009-18).

Rainfall totalled 23.3 mm   (CR school 24.5 mm)  -  Mean Min' of 4.27°c  -  Mean Max' 14.33°c  -  with a highest maximum of 21.3°c (15th) and a lowest minimum of -1.0°c (10+12th).

There was 4 air frosts and 12 ground frosts. Hail fell on 1 day, fog was recorded for the first time in May and with 5.7 mm the 2nd was the wettest day.

  Summary   - is now updated with May's weather report.
