    Since 1988, a cold February has been seldom. There was a period in the 19th century where a cold February was not often and mild Februarys were fairly common

    Here's the CET for the Februarys from and including 1846 to 1885 and compared to the rolling 30 years eg, the 1850s are compared to the 1821-1850 average, the 1860s to the 1831-60 average etc

    1846: 6.4 (+2.3)

    1847: 2.4 (-1.7)

    1848: 6.1 (+2.0)

    1849: 5.7 (+1.6)

    1850: 6.4 (+2.3)

    1851: 4.7 (+0. :closedeyes:

    1852: 4.7 (+0. :)

    1853: 0.6 (-3.3)

    1854: 4.3 (+0.4)

    1855: -1.7 (-5.6)

    1856: 5.3 (+1.4)

    1857: 4.3 (+0.4)

    1858: 1.8 (-2.1)

    1859: 5.7 (+1. :)

    1860: 1.7 (-2.2)

    1861: 4.9 (+1.2)

    1862: 5.1 (+1.4)

    1863: 5.8 (+2.1)

    1864: 2.3 (-1.4)

    1865: 2.3 (-1.4)

    1866: 4.4 (+0.7)

    1867: 6.9 (+3.2)

    1868: 6.3 (+2.6)

    1869: 7.5 (+3. :)

    1870: 2.8 (-0.9)

    1871: 6.1 (+2.2)

    1872: 6.9 (+3.0)

    1873: 1.8 (-2.1)

    1874: 3.9 (+0.0)

    1875: 2.3 (-1.6)

    1876: 4.8 (+0.9)

    1877: 6.2 (+2.3)

    1878: 5.6 (+1.7)

    1879: 3.1 (-0. :)

    1880: 5.8 (+1.9)

    1881: 3.2 (-1.0)

    1882: 6.1 (+1.9)

    1883: 5.9 (+1.7)

    1884: 5.3 (+1.1)

    1885: 5.8 (+1.6)

    Out of that period 40 Februarys, 12 were below average, the rest were at or above average. Quite a number were well above the average. (21 were +1 or greater than average) 10 had a CET of 6 or greater

    The period 1867-72 had 5 of the 6 Februarys with a CET of 6 or greater, so a pretty impressive period of very mild Februarys.

    Certainly after 1845, a cold February was not often but a very mild February was fairly frequent

    I don’t think any of us would complain if we had that run of February’s from 1853 to 1860 over the next few years!

    Thanks and proof our recent number of mild February's akin to what we saw at times in 1860s and 1870s without effect of climate change. I wonder what a Feb 1869 would deliver now CET wise..
