May 2015 - Cold, Wet and Dull

Post by rjd1000 » Fri May 29, 2015 2:12 pm

maximum temperature of just 15.2c

Mean maximum 3c below average

Rainfall 109.5mm - nearly at 200% of average

sunshine 112 hours - 52% of average

This compares to May 1996 that had average sunshine (Aspatria 225 hours) and average rainfall

Have to go back to 1979 to find a May as cold, wet and dull
