a high today of 8.1C from the low of -1.4C with plenty of sunshine and out of the wind feeling quite pleasant. The mildest day since 16th when it was 9.1C

The mean for the 30 days stands at 3.2C, if I take it from 5-30th it drops to 2.8C, that is quite incredible and below all the winter month long term RAF Finningley averages, 1942-1995.
