I have spotted a minor error in my spreadsheet calculations for means !! - I may have to redo the whole 18yrs, hopefully it wont make much difference at the end of it all, but very annoying.

Winter 2017/2018

Mean Max 5.7c (-1.3c)
Mean Min 1.1c (-0.4c)
Mean 3.4c (-0.3)

Rainfall 267.8mm or 103%

AF 32

Snow Falling 26days
Snow lying at 0900hrs 9

So slightly colder than average, slightly wetter
