Interesting the TV is saying it has been the sunniest winter on record. Obviously another of those things that doesn't apply to Cumbria!

Altitude for me - my deep snowfall will have decreased temperatures in general, even in bright sunshine ?

Suspect that Carl and Bill may have been recording data longer and therefore had far worse February's that the last one ?
