    A staggering contrast in temps by taking the 1st 14 days and the last 14 days separately :)

    Whole month

    Average max = 6.03c (highest 11c on 1st,8th,10th,11th)

    Average min = 0.67c (lowest = -5c on 16th,28th)

    Mean = 3.35c

    Dry days = 10

    Precip days = 18 (of which snow/sleet/hail = 12)

    Approx rainfall = 30mm (I'm very unsure ;) )

    1st 14 days

    Average max = 8c

    Average min = 3.71c

    Mean = 5.85c

    Last 14 days

    Average max = 4.07c

    Average min = -2.2c

    Mean = 0.93c

    **A staggering difference in the means of those fortnight periods of just about 5c!

    February 2004 followed an almost identical pattern!

    Is this the start of a long term trend. We'll see in a years' time :)
