    Monthly Report for May 2005 at Pollard's Hill Weather Station, Surrey

    It was the driest May in Pollards Hill history (However, If I'd been here in 1989 that particular May I very much suspect would have been drier)

    I also registered my hottest May maximum temperature ever on the 27th. The warm weather came too late to prevent temperatures over the 31 days being a little down on May's average.

    Max Temp Avg.....18.35°c...(-0.17°C below avg)

    Min Temp Avg....8.68°c...(-0.39°C)

    Mean Temp Avg.....13.51°c.....(-0.28°C)

    Highest Daytime Max.....30.7°C (27th)

    Lowest Night Min.....2.0°c (11th)

    Total Rainfall.....14mm...(-35mm below Avg)

    Wettest Day.....3mm...(16th & 30th)

    Number of Dry Days.....22

    Number of Rain Days.....9

    Most of the time the weather was sunny and pleasantly warm. However, when rain fell, it fell in very large quantities resulting in a very high May rainfall total.


    The start of May was warm and humid with sunny spells.

    2nd > 8th

    The start of month was unsettled with showers on the 2nd. Persistent cloud gave way to some very heavy showers on the 4th. It was predominantly dry from then on but rather cool at times.

    9th > 10th

    There were overnight frosts and minimums of -1C but daytime temperatures were around average. In the sunshine, 23.5C was reached and this was precursor of evening showers, one with thunder on the 9th.

    11th > 15th

    There were intermittent periods of high and low pressure but the weather was mostly dry and sunny with pleasant long spells of sunshine. The 15th saw a taste of ealry summer with 20.5C reached in the shade.

    16th > 19th

    The 16th saw cloud and light rain but cleared to give sunshine on the 17th. The wind picked up on the 18th bringing light rain at times on the 19th.

    20th > 23rd

    This was the most unsettled period of the month. It grew quite warm and close. Heavy showers occurred on the 20th between sunny spells. The 21st was very unsettled with violent thunderstorms. The 22nd was rather dull with a prolonged spell of heavy rain before the return of thunderstorms on the 23rd. In this period, a total of 57.5mm of rain fell.

    24th > 26th

    It stayed dry and increasingly warmer though sunshine was rather scarce.

    27th > 31st

    The end of the month was warm, dry and sunny in the southwest. The 27th was hot and humid with a high of 28C in Bristol - the highest May temperature since 1947. It remained very warm and sunny to end the month with spells of clear sunshine.

    Temperature: 18.2C

    Rainfall: 91mm

    • Exceptional warmth for western Europe as October begins

      There'll be exceptionally warm temperatures for the time of year affecting much of western Europe during the coming days, but that warmth will only graze the UK for now. Next weekend may see a more direct hit with the potential for southerly winds to draw some of that heat north and take temperatures into the mid or high-twenties. Read the full update here
