FEBRUARY 2007
March 2007


Note
A total hosepipe and sprinkler ban is in effect in Mid Kent Water supply areas until further notice, but South East Water has now lifted its hosepipe restrictions.
1st - 4th
HP over the British Isles, sunny spells and feeling mild. 3rd was a cloudless day.
5th - 9th
HP moves over the continent while LP systems slowly move in from the W, allowing colder air to advect southwards into the UK. LP moves across S England on the morning of the 8th bringing light to moderate snowfall for approx 6 hrs, leaving a covering of a few cm which lasted until the afternoon before largely thawing. This was the first precipitation for 11 days.
10th - 17th
Gradually becoming milder with maritime airflow. Frequent showers until just after midday on the 11th. LP tracks across the midlands on the 12th bringing outbreaks of rain. Three long spells of rain overnight 13th to 14th.
18th - 27th
Mainly mild, cloudy and generally dull spell of weather with frequent bands of rain and showers from the 21st. Continuing unsettled and more windy towards the end of the month as Atlantic systems cross the southern half of the UK.

‡ SUN: Sunshine hours are calculated approximately and solely from solar radiation readings, but note that the solar sensor's exposure to sunshine is limited. The sensor receives only 70% of total possible sunshine exposure this month. There is no allowance for sunshine by visual observation only, so the figures above can be very significantly less than the actual daily sunshine duration.
THW = Shaded Heat Index calculated with cooling/warming effect of wind and humidity to give an apparent temperature.
THSW = Unshaded Heat Index calculated with cooling/warming effect of wind, humidity and full direct sunshine to give an apparent temperature.
EVAPO-TRANSPIRATION is drying effect due to sun and wind, and is equivalent to "negative rainfall"

‡ SUN: Sunshine hours are calculated approximately and solely from solar radiation readings, but note that the solar sensor's exposure to sunshine is limited to approx 75% of total possible sunshine exposure each day, and there is no allowance for sunshine by visual observation only, so the figures above can be significantly less than the actual daily sunshine duration.
