Top ten mild start to March

The first 15 days of March 2017 have provisionally made it the 10th mildest start to March in Central England since 1772. Currently the mean to the 15th is 7.97°C or +2.77°C above the 1961-1990 long-term average. Whether it will be able to keep to through the rest of the month remains to be seen. I did make a rash statement that it wouldn’t beat March 1957 in one of my earlier missives, which may now be looking a bit rash on my part! The blue line in the top chart is the 2017 mean, and the red one 1957 (fig 1).

About xmetman

I am an exmetman who is passionate about all things to do with weather and climate. I have no axe to grind, and am continually upsetting people on both sides of the global warming debate with the articles that I publish, hell, I'm even banned from commenting on the Met Office's own blog! What I do fight for is the freeing up of climate, observational and forecast data collected and created on our behalf by the Meteorological Office.
