The first half of January 1950 was very mild with high pressure over Europe pumping up very mild tropical maritime air across the UK. Maxima was above 10C on most days during the first half of the month.


The weather turned colder on the 17th as high pressure developed across Scandinavia and ridged across the UK with the Azores high


Frost that were non existent in the first half of the month occurred every night during the second half and doube digit maxima disappeared.

The high pressure block over Scandinavia was unable to produce and easterly but it kept the UK on the cold side with the 26th a particularly cold day.


January 1950 CET: 4.2

First half: 7.9

Second half 0.8

First half mean max: 10.4

Second half mean max: 2.9

First half mean min: 5.3

Second half mean min: -1.4
