Last Months Report

December came in with well above average for the temperatures. Rainfall wise it came in just above average. Once again the month lacked any storms continuing the recent trend of quiet winter months.   The month was a very mild one helped mostly by mild nights which were well above average. The first seven days saw temperature's hitting double figures on five occasions with 10.7C on the 1st and 5th. 11.8C on the 7th while the warmest day 12.3C was on the 6th with the 2nd running it close with 12.3C being reached. The spring like weather also produced the warmest night of 10.5C. There was also good temperature range on the 5th of 9.3C as temperatures rose from a low of 1.4C to reach 10.7C. After the 7th temperature dropped to values which mostly maintained throughout the month this being between 7C and 9C. There was a brief rather cold snap between the 12th and 14th which produced the coldest day 2.3C and the oldest nights of -2C on the 14th and 15th. Christmas eve was cold and frosty with a ground frost that lasted all day only to disappear overnight as milder air returned. The mild air remained until the end of the month ensuring a very mild month. Indeed the month ending with temperatures back into double figures with temperatures more like spring. One of the quirks of since 1955 once the average temperate for December passes the 6C mark only once have two months come in just below average. This was in the winter 71/72. So it looks like we are going to have a very mild winter. Of course records are there to be broken.        December was a wet month despite a dry period from the 9th to 14th and a mostly dry period from the 24th to the end of the month when only 0.2mm was recorded. The rain on the 24th was melted frost. The heaviest rain fell during the 1st seven days with 10.3mm and 10.7mm falling on the 5th and 7th. Just over a 3rd of the months total rainfall fell in the first eight days. Another wet spell commenced from the 15th to the 23rd. The most important feature of the 2nd spell was the freezing rain on the 15th. This period also showed alarming mis calculations by the met office who forecast heavy snow as well even though nothing supported this idea away from Scotland and far reaches of Eastern england. The models clearly showed the cold uppers being displaced well in front of the approaching warm front and the precipitation. A cold walk on top which ended in a sleet shower gave ample warning of what to expect later and it wasn't snow. Luckily due to temperatures being above freezing and probably the depth of the warm air ice wasn't as widespread as it could have been. This meant we didn't suffer from the ice storm effects as you see the USA although it did cause a few accidents around the region. However the Met office again has some questions to answer as to why they held onto the Snow forecasts and warnings as long as they did.       There weren't any windy periods during December the highest gust being 47mph on the 29th so nothing of note during this month. There wasn't any Snow or Thunderstorms during December the only wintry weather was in the form of freezing rain on the 15th which luckily wasn't as bad as forecast.   January will start on a dry settled note and briefly on the cold side before temperatures recover to normal values by the weekend. Some frost, fog and mist to start the first few days as a High pressure sits over the country. Finally the models are now indicating the HIgh pressure that arrived on Christmas eve will stick around for some considerable time. Therefore it looks like the high pressure will remain for the first part of the month. So it will mostly dry settled with frost and possible fog at night at first however as the high sinks  a little a return to milder conditions by the 5th. Towards the end of the 2nd week we finally lose the high pressure with south westerly winds to bringing weather fronts to the west and north of the UK while the south east will see most of any dry weather. So for Sheffield and the surrounding region still plenty of dry weather with most of any rain on the light side as weather fronts die away. The third week still sees a mostly south westerly flow so staying mild again most of rain fairly light as the high will still be fairly close and by the fourth week the pressure will build over Europe with providing more in way of sunshine and southerly winds so it be very mild. The month will close with a return to south westerly winds and more unsettled. January will be a another very mild month yet little in the way of Winter storms so keeping the recent trend of fairly quiet weather. Rainfall is now looking to be below average. Frost and Fog after the first few days will be a rarity and Snow notable for it's absence once again.
