The mildest year Ive ever recorded, 8 out of 12 months were more than 1.0°C Above average. The month most above average was October (+2.7°C), with some notable late high temperatures and very high minimas. The year did however have a below average November and December, which saved the year from reaching the 11.00°C average mark.

Overall, a very hot and extended summer, with 20°C topped during every month from May to October. There were notable hot spells in late-June and mid-July, with maximas above 23°C for 7 and 9 consecutive days respectively. The hottest day of the year was in June once more, where 30.1°C was reached on the 23rd.

The most interesting parts of the year were Spring and Autumn, as these were typically more 'continental' in nature. Indeed, in March after a very cold start, the weather suddenly switched and became very mild, meaning the month ended well above average. November on the other hand was the opposite; coming from an extremely mild October and after a very warm start a prolonged cold spell occured, leading to the first month below average in 15.

The winter months of the year were typically mild in nature overall, though February and December had easterly cold snaps. The February event was much more marginal, with higher temperatures and less snow, but the December event did not disappoint. The coldest day was the 29th December, where the lowest maxima of -1.2°C and lowest minima of -4.2°C were both recorded. The number of airfrosts was above average, mainly due to the two easterly spells. The worst winter month was January, with only 3 frosts and an average minima higher than November.

The year was very sunny with around average amounts of rain. Most of the precipitation came in the summer from heavy showers. There were 16 thunderstorms altogether, not as high as previous years but certainly not disappointing. The wettest month was July, with 177% of average! The driest was December, with only 32% of average.

2005 was a very dry year here - just 60% of my yearly average precipitation from 1984 to 2005. This is by a huge margin the lowest annual rainfall I have recorded here since I started in 1984 (old record 551mm in 2003) and quite possibly the driest year in the locality since 1921. The most notable feature was that the number of rainy days was close to average, therefore the deficit is due to the lack of heavy and prolonged rainfall and thunderstorms. Even the wettest day of the year saw only 17mm fall whereas at least one day with well in excess of 25mm can be expected in a normal year.

In all other respects a rather average year weatherwise being 'consistent' with no extremes of heat or cold. The year as a whole was the coolest since 2001, but the summer was the 5th warmest I have recorded since 1984.

Annual Mean temp = 10.9 ºC

Highest Maximum = 31.9 ºC (19 June)

Lowest Minimum = -4.5 ºC (4 March)

Days with Max >= 25ºc......30

Days with Max<= 5ºc.........24

Days with Min<= 0ºc..........33

2005 Annual Rainfall = 424.7mm

Average Annual Rainfall = 705mm

2005 Rainy Days = 155

Average Annual Raindays = 159

Westbury, Wiltshire : 2005 Statistics

Highest = 31c (19th June)

Lowest = -7c (29th December)

Average max = 14.16c

Average min = 6.28c

Annual mean = 10.22c (0.43c cooler than 2004)

Dry days = 182

Precipitation days = 183 ( :lol: at this breakdown of days)

Of which Snow / sleet / hail = 33

Rainfall = 832mm*

*For my money an incredible amount of rainfall, in fact I am slightly concerned about the accuracy of my gauge. However the rainfall I have recorded on very wet days does tally up with local 'experts' totals. Westbury did suffer some very wet 24 hour periods (some days where it rained for nowhere near 24 hours!). Examples being June 24th when a series of severe thunderstorms dumped 39mm, Sept 10th when a remarkable 1 hour deluge dumped nigh on 40mm. Other 24 hour periods include 29th/30th March with 38mm and 1st/2nd December with 37mm.

This has been confirmed on today's BBC Points West forecast where rainfall totals for 8 weather recorders in the region were shown to vary between 750mm - 850+mm in 2005.
