PLEASE NOTE

This is a private automatic weather station (AWS) based in South East England, and reported data is neither official nor part of the UK Met Office network. This AWS does not conform to Met Office standards - which are far too stringent for most amateurs but the readings give a good indication of weather conditions in the "average" local back garden.

Information is provided for general interest only and use of any data is entirely at your own risk. Live weather updates are available most evenings and weekends.

JANUARY 2017 - COLDER, DRIER & SUNNIER THAN AVERAGE.

WEATHER: The month was dominated by calm, anti-cyclonic conditions, but Atlantic low pressure systems gave unsettled weather briefly in the middle and at the end of the month.
TEMPERATURE: Mean 1.5 °C below average. Apart from a brief mild spell in the second week of February, the days were rather cold, particularly during the third week. The nights were cold with 15 air frosts and some hard ground frosts.
RAINFALL: 56.6 mm, 71% of site average. Although there were 20 days with precipitation much of it was light with few very wet days. Snowfall was observed on 3 days although ground cover was minimal.
SUNSHINE: 71.7 hours, well above average. Dull spells from the 6th - 16th and at the end of January were balanced out by a very sunny spell from 17th- 24th which resulted in the sunniest January in the site records ( N.B. this data back to 2006 only)
