I kind of miss doing my weather posts which lets me compare one year to the next but an the other hand also found them a little monotonous so this year I have decided to summarise each month instead pointing out the highs and lows of winds, temperatures and generalization of the month.
So lets talk January 2014...... well it was errrmmm...WET!!!!
This year has seen the wettest January in many parts of the country for more than a century, figures show.
Luckily I live in an area where we don't suffer with floods except little flash ones when the rains come down really heavy put they soon drain away. Having said that though it doesn't mean there isn't a lot of standing water in the fields and parks around and about and ditches are full to the brim in places.
Of course so much wet has meant we have seen very little of the sunshine or blue skies.
Not much else to be said about it really.
The temperatures have been quite mild for the time of year. We had a couple of nights where the temperature dipped just below freezing and a couple of hours where it tried to snow but typically the temperature has bee between 4 and 9 degrees Celsius.
The winds have been strong and gusty at times, often damaging to properties/countryside as they managed to gust at up 90m.p.h.
Here's hoping that now the month has changed so too, will the weather.
