7th mildest March on record to date

With 28 days of the month now gone, March 2017 provisionally stands as the 7th warmest March in Central England back to 1772, with a mean temperature of 8.11°C which is +2.55°C above the 1961-1990 long-term average. Maximum anomalies are a little higher than minimum anomalies this month, indicating that the days have been a little milder than the nights. Mild has it’s been, there was little chance that it would catch the exceptionally mild March of 1957 though.

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.
