Third warmest spring is huge contrast from last year

Provisional figures from the Met Office indicate that spring this year across the UK has been the third warmest in records which date back to 1910.

 

It continues a run of warmer than average months which began in December of last year.

 

Rainfall this spring has been close to average across the UK – but May itself was very wet particularly across England, with 156% of average rainfall up to 28th May.

 

But what a huge contrast this is with spring 2013, which was the coldest across the UK since 1962, making it the 5th coldest since 1910.

 

March last year in particular was one of the snowiest and coldest on record.

 

Summer, climatologically at least, is now here, but our weather looks set to remain very unsettled over the next few days with a risk of further rainfall at times.

 

But there will be decent drier brighter spells, and with temperatures levels remaining at or above normal levels, it should feel pleasantly warm.
