My verbal report for March

An 'average' sort of month, March began with some snow and many frosty nights, the daytime maximum temperatures often managed to reach around 10C, which is what we expect in March. The warmest day was the 18th with a high of 14.7C. There were 12 nights with a frost, all but one of these were during the first half of the month. The minimum temperature was -5.6C on the 5th.

The total rainfall for March was 60.5mm, which is close to the 22 year average for Scotby. There was quite a heavy snowfall on the 2nd, which soon melted, followed by 11 dry days. From the 19th until the end of the month there was rain on most days, the wettest day being the 30th with 15.6mm.
