February was another very wet month and also a month of two halves. The first part very cold the second part very mild almost offsetting the first half of the month. The end result was an close to average month temperature wise with the overall temperature just slightly below normal. The month started on the cold side and the cold spell lasted until the 15th of the month when a complete reversal took place. This period included 9 air frosts including the coldest night since March 1st 2018 when the temperature fell to -6.6C. This being the 12th. The night before was also very cold with -6C being recorded. This period produced 7 consecutive air frosts from the 8th to the 14th. The coldest spell was between the 7th and 14th where when the winds went round to a more north easterly direction. Sadly the beast from the east was anything but and feeble compared to other easterlies. Despite some impressive cold uppers no ice days were recorded with the coldest day being on the 13th with 0.8C being the low. Despite the temperatures being close to freezing there was a daytime thaw of Snow. The cold spell died with a fitting whimper and the 15th saw double figures reached at 11.8C was the high. The weather from the 15th was generally very mild even warm on the 24th as temperatures reached 15.1C. Only two days broke the spring like weather by failing to reach double figures these being the 18th and 25th 8.6C and 9.7C respectively. The second warmest day was on the 20th with 12.5C. Indeed the 3rd and 4th seven day break down showed averages more akin to June than February. At the half way mark the average temperatures was 0.9C -3.7C below normal. It seemed unthinkable at the time that the final temperature's would be 4.3C just 0.5C below average. No surprised that the 2nd half of the month produced the highest night temperatures at 8.5C on the 21st. A 15.1C degree difference between the coldest night and the mildest night. Rainfall was well above average with most of the rain falling in the cold half of the month with very little in warm 2nd half. large amounts of Rain, sleet and and Snow fell on the 1st, 2nd and 6th with 12.5mm,15.6mm and 20.8mm respectively. This was more than half the months total of 93.7mm. The last 14 days only produced 20.9mm. So the first half of the month was very wet indeed. Once again the cold spell was associated with the wet spell of weather while the mild spell the dry weather. Normally in winter it's the other way round. Measurable rain fell on the first 9 days with a dry spell from the 11th to the 13th and another one from the 25th to the end of the month. Despite the cold first half of the month Snow fell only on 7 days. The first and heaviest fall of the month was overnight from the 1st to the 2nd producing 10cm of Snow this melted rapidly on the 3rd when all 6cm disappeared. This was the first time that snow had managed to lie since March 2018. The next Snow fell overnight 5th into 6th however this was mainly an evaporative cooling event and each time the snow turned light it switched back to rain which meant there was wasn't a measurable covering by morning. However the beast from the east was here and soon turned to a feeble easterly based event. Light Snow over night 7th into the 8th produced depths of 1cm to 3cm with slight drifting. Despite more snow showers during the day the snow melted as faster than fell but it managed to last the day out. More Snow in the evening brought the depth up to 6cm. The last Snow of the month and the winter fell on the evening of the 10th. However the wind kept it out of the rain gauge so there was to measure rainfall wise. The Snow managed to lie until the 14th before melting quickly overnight. There were 7 days of lying snow and 9 in total the longest and the first since March 2018. Storm Darcy brought 23.7mm of rain including Snow but overall wasn't anything special and again didn't warrant a storm status. Strangely despite amber warnings the met office failed to name a storm on the 23rd. This stormy weather brought the first gusts of 50 mph for over a year and was a welcome change from the long quiet spell in regards to windy weather. In western areas gusts to 60 to 70 mph were produced making a mockery out of the naming convection. March looks set to start on the a cool note fairly cloudy keeping the day time temperatures down. A quiet spell of weather as high pressure dominates the pattern. The quiet spell of weather looks to dominate the fist 10 days of the month with night air and ground frosts at times. The weather doesn't look to start being unsettled until around the middle of the month when high pressure relents letting the Atlantic push in but with returning Maritime air it's a few days before the temperatures turn mild so a brief spell of mild weather before high pressure builds to the north introducing a cool easterly flow so temperatures are Iikley to be average to below again with some frosts and a few showers on some days. Overall apart from some windy weather middle of the month it looks a fairly quiet month and a fairly settled on. So temperatures average to below and rainfall below average looks the likely out come at the moment. Some frost and fog around but Snow looks unlikely at the moment.
