STATION NOTES.
Despite the fact that I was In Maine in the USA for the first 13 days of the month the AWS linked to the computer did its job perfectly.

The temperatures were above normal by +2.0c on the maximum, minimum and mean.

The rainfall of 67mm was 115% of the average. On the 21st only 1mm of rain was recorded and during a downpour about 2 miles down the road the lower part of a church roof was covered in hail and the roads had water to a depth of 6".

June 2004 was the warmest June in the last 50 years and also a wet month the highlight of the month was the summer storm of the night of 22nd 23rd.

A rainbow was observed on the 9th.

The rainfall was 169% of the average with a wet period from 18th through to the 25th, which took into account the period of the storm a total of 87mm was recorded in that period 39 in the period 22nd-23rd at the peak in this period rain was falling at the rate of 164mm per hour.

question, how do you define sunless days?? no breaks in thick cloud cover ?

Posted by: ole blue eyes Aug 4 2004, 02:19 AM

Vergil

As I record sunlight on a electronic recorder supplied by R & D Instromet in Eastborne UK a sunless day is a day when no sunshine is recorded whatsoever.

That of course would be overcast conditions throughout the daylight hours.

STATION NOTES.

September 2004 was another record-breaking month with a new record mean minimum temperature of 11.6c breaking the old record of 11.5c that was recorded in 1958.

The mean maximum was +1.2c the mean minimum was +1.9c and the mean was +1.6c. The highest mean for the record was 15.9c in the warm September of 1999.

The rainfall was just over average with 73mm falling in the month.

Within the month we had only 2 sunless days

The month started off with a dry spell with no rain falling until the 11th this was quite amazing as I was away in Kenya and up in the mountains at Bunyore nearly each afternoon from 16.00hours to 18.00hours you could guarantee a storm with rain lashing on the tin roofs.

STATION NOTES.

A Rainbow observed on 2 occasions on the 21st.

January 2005 was a notable month for the mildness, the wind and the lack of rain. The month was the one the warmest since 1990 with an average of 6.11c while the rainfall was 61 mm. The main talking point was the wind and the lack of notable snow.

The mean maximum temperature was 8.56c, which was the warmest for 15 years with 1990 showing a reading of 9.8c. The mean minimum was the highest since 1983 these two combined gave a mean of + 2.41c.

Temperatures started mild and overall there wasn’t any notable real cold weather to speak of. The lowest maximum temperatures of the month were on the 22nd to the 25th. The only time temperatures peaked below five degrees. Only two air frosts were recorded on the 22nd and 23rd, which is amazing considering the time of year. The highest temperature was 13.5C recorded on the 15th while the lowest was –0.7 on the 22nd. Towards the end of the month temperatures dropped back but still were high enough to make it one the mildest Januarys on record. Ground frosts were only recorded on 4 occasions with the 22nd and 23rd giving low ground temperatures.

January 2005 was a dry month 61 mm, which is 74% of the average, with 9 mm, recorded on the 9th including sleet showers. Snow fell on only 2 occasions during the month on the 18th and 24th giving only a dusting.

The wind reached speeds over 30 mph on six times during the month considering my station is situated in a lee of the hills this is high a maximum of 42.3 mph was recorded on the 19th.

STATION NOTES.
September 2005 was a month of above average temperatures and above average rainfall. One or two cool nights helped cool the temperatures down slightly without those it would have well over normal. The month started hot before cooling down as the month went on. Rainfall started on the low side but a weak overnight storm heralded the start of a wet month.
Temperatures continued the hot weather from the end of the previous month peaking at 26.7c on the 6th. The mean maximum temperature was +2.5c of the local averages, again the minimum was +3.2 and then the mean temperature was +2.3 above the average.
Therefore there was a new local record set for the mean minimum 12.0c was just 0.3c over the 1999 average.
Rainfall for once came in well above average. It started dry then a weak storm produced 35 mm of rain over two days during the 8th and 9th. Further heavy rain fell on the 15th and 28th, 16 mm and 11 mm respectively

STATION NOTES.
December 2005 started on a wet note then quickly dried up, as a weak Atlantic didn’t provide any really vigorous depressions.
Winds were dominate from the Southerly Quadrant once again but only just as the Weak Atlantic allowed several Northerly flows throughout the month. The only noteworthy windy day was the 15th when 33.8 mph was recorded.
Temperatures hit double figures on six days the highest being 12.8c on the 11th and 10.8c on the tenth. The lowest was on the 28th just above freezing at 1.5C. The lowest temperature of the year were recorded on the 29th –3.2c.
Rainfall started out quite well with the highest of 15 mm recorded on the 1st. There was no rain after the 9th until 27th when 1 mm was recorded and this was snow melt. The month was dry with only 29 mm recorded in total, which is just 34% of the local average.
Snowfall was rare again. Occurring on 2 days towards the end of the month and the snow was generally light. Heavy Snow Forecast for the 30th didn’t turn up the milder air moving much quicker than expected.

STATION NOTES.

February 2006 was a month when the temperatures were just above the average.

The first 3 days of the month saw calm winds, mist and low temperatures these recovered with a warm spell from the 12th through to the 19th.

The 21st to the 24th saw a spell with snow and on the 24th the snow was laying on the ground, and falling at 09z when I observed. A further feature was 12 days of ground frost during the month.

The sunshine for the month was low with 54.43 hours recorded during the lengthening days of this month. There were a total of 10 sunless days.

The key feature however was the lack of rainfall during the month with only 42% of the average recorded but for the rain that fell on the 23rd 15mm in total we would have had a spectacularly low figure.

As we move into March there is no let up in the cold spell

STATION NOTES.
March 2006 was a cold month with the temperatures well down on what could be expected for this month. The mean maximum was –1.8c whilst the mean minimum was only –0.1 the mean worked out at 4.9.
If it were not for the run of winds from a southerly quadrant commencing on the 25th the month would have been even colder. We had air frosts on 9 days during the month.
A feature of this month was that we had above average rainfall 81 mm giving us 127% of our average with a total of 21 wet days throughout the month but the maximum recorded on any one day was 11 mm
On the evening of the 3rd a slow moving narrow band of snow brought heavy snow in the evening and I had to go out in the car it was a struggle luckily the trough was dying and the roads cleared within a couple of hours.

September 2006 was the warmest September on record. In September 1999 the mean maximum was 20.7c but this September saw that record broken with a mean maximum of 21.2c against the average of 17.1c. The mean minimum was 13.4c compared with the average and this combination gave a mean of 17.5c against the average of 13.5c. Despite this the last day of the month saw a grass minimum of 2.0c which indicated that it was after all autumn.
The winds were from the easterly quadrant on 15 days of the month at 09.0z. Rainfall was slightly above average with a fall of 13.0mm on the 22nd of the month.
The event of note was the afternoon of 14th just before 15.00 hours it went very dark and at 15.03 hours mayhem broke loose. The rain poured for a 10 minute period but at 15.03 hours a wind gust of 40.3 mph was recorded and at 15.15 hours it cleared again to blue sky. Further north however in Leeds 28 miles away a tornado was reported all I recorded was the passing of this vigorous front.

STATION NOTES.

As I spent part of October in Kenya flying to Nairobi on the 17th it was great to have the station linked to the computer.

The highlight of the month was the fact that a new record was set for the mean maximum which was 10.6c and beats the one set in 2001 of 10.1c

On the 16th of the month the diurnal range of the temperature was most interesting, I recorded a maximum of 12.7c and a minimum of 11.9c with a range of only 0.8c

STATION NOTES.

March 2007 was a mild month this was indicated by the fact that mean temperatures were over 2 degrees above the average.

Just like the previous year we had a mini cold spell lasting 3 days giving a minimum air temperature of -0.9c on the 21st. throughout the 18th we had showers of both snow and small hail giving just a light covering that soon melted.

High maximum gusts of 35.9 mph and 35.6 mph were recorded on the 17th and 18th of the month.

The feature of note however was the fact the month was again a dry one with rainfall of only 41mm falling which is 64% of the average.

The days are now getting longer and 9.72 hours of sunshine was recorded on the 21st.

STATION NOTES.

June 2007 was a record breaking month for the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Region it will be remembered for the wettest month on record locally and yet despite all the rain it was a warm month. In keeping with the last month we have entered July with the Atlantic Systems lying further South across the country than what they usually do.

The month was dominated by winds from a Northerly quadrant a total of 12 days with a further 5 days with an Easterly flow. The highest wind was recorded on the 25th with a gust of 30 mph and all day speeds of 15 mph plus was recorded.

Despite the winds from the cold quadrants. The period 8th to the 13th saw maximum temperatures of 20c+ with a maximum of 25.3c on the 11th. Overall the temperatures were above the normal and this despite the short supply of sunshine as on 91.29 hours were recorded during the month. The lowest night temperature was during the night of the 2nd when the ground temperature fell to 3c.

During the month we had 4 storms, the first was singled the start of the major rain fall I heard a single clap of thunder at 15.30 hours on the 13th then the rain commenced over the 13th to 17th I recorded 122mm of rain this was the catalyst for the major flooding during this period we had a further storm on the 15th from 19.00 hours to 21.00 hours with quite vivid lightening. This was the first major flooding as our area borne the brunt of the rain 88mm was recorded. On the morning of the 15th we woke up in Chapeltown to torrents of water and the centre of the village was cut of with floods up to 5 feet deep. The two local roads across the road by my home were closed as water poured out of the woods at Grenoside. This torrential rain flooded the ground and major run off occurred as the ground could not absorb any further water.
The evening of the 19th saw a further heavy storm from 21.30 hours to 22.30 hours and it was a light storm. The heaviness on the atmosphere could be felt and during the night i.e. the early hours of the 20th we had a strong heavy storm which started with a cloud to ground discharge then there was a spectacular display of cloud to ground lightening. These two storms gave a total of 24mm of rain added to the 14mm which was recorded on the 17th.

To this saturated ground on the 0n the 24th and 25th most of the rain commencing after midnight of the 24th a total 107mm was recorded on the Monday and Tuesday we had a repeat of the previous road closures but this time part of the major A61 trunk road from Sheffield to Barnsley was washed away resulting in its closure. I am thankful we live on the higher ground as parts of Hillsborough, Central Sheffield and the Don Valley were like a war zone on the Tuesday Morning. The events are well chronicled from various sources with many stunning photos and BBC Look North and Yorkshire Television reported the events. I even had emails from friends in Kenya asking if my wife and I were safe and well as it was on National Television there as well.

The total rainfall for the month was 318mm and it was indeed a record breaker.
Media Brief Week Commencing Monday 25th June 2007
This week will always be in the memory of the people of Sheffield and Rotherham. Sadly a few deaths occurred but so many people had to walk miles home in torrential rain with transport halted by flooding and road closures. The RAF helicopter crews were scrambled to the Don Valley to winch people from the roofs of industrial premises as the River Don burst its banks in The Lower Don Valley reclaiming its natural flood plain. The huge Shopping Complex at Meadowhall was flooded and was closed for a full we even now at the beginning of July only the upper floors are open as stock on the lower floors s damaged. In Brightside a rescue boat negotiated cars that were hurting along in the flood like missiles to rescue trapped people.
In the Hillsborough and Neepsend areas the river also burst its banks taking out a sub-station cutting off power to many homes in the process. Emergency accommodation was set up in various places. The pitch at Sheffield Wednesday Football Ground was flooded. Apartments near the town centre in Neepsend, Corporation Street and Nursery Street were flood on the ground floors. Parts of Heeley Bridge were flooded as the drains could not cope with the volume of water.
Overnight it was observed that the reservoir at Ulley was beginning to leak and the local villages in its path were evacuated. The M1 motorway was closed and just the other side of the motorway concern was expressed that if the wall burst a major power distribution site would be flooded and thousands of homes would loose power. A major emergency swung into action as many pumps were used to lower the level of the water behind the wall so that emergency work could take place.
The emergency moved downstream to Doncaster and I am sure other observers will file dramatic reports as areas in that town are still under water on the 3rd July. Rotherham Railway station is also still flooded and trains are not using it.

On Wednesday 27th in an approaching shower I observed a Funnel Cloud over The Woodhead Pass Area.
How did this event occur?
Thunderstorms and rain associated with the low pressure that tracked North East across the country 1000 – 1007 mbs saturated the ground and produced the conditions for further major flooding this total of 132 mm of rain over the 3 days was high causing flooding. The 14mm on the 17th together with the 24mm on the 19th, the 9mm on the 21st and finally the 6mm on the 22nd kept the ground wet with water continually running off.
All that was now needed were the right metrological conditions so far in this disappointing summer the Low Pressure Systems across the country have settled 300 miles South of their usual track to the North of Scotland.
The low 999mb Monday 25th and its strong winds maximum gust 30 mph were the cause. The original low moved North East and a further low pressure area formed off Cornwall and Devon. This combined with the warm air moving up from France and the colder drier air moving down from the North gave the right conditions for a slow moving band of heavy rainfall. This band sat over Northern England with its Southern Edge directly over Sheffield.

The rainfall started as I was finishing work at midnight on Sunday and continued until late Monday evening. The heaviest bursts were from 16.00 hours to 17.00 hours when rain was running down the roads like rivers and it was a nightmare journey home from work for those who made it home. Finally the rain moved away South Easterly.
Rain falling in such volumes on saturated ground just run off the 107mm that fell caused the flooding as it was in a period of 22 hours.

If the rain of the 6th 13mm and the rain of the 16th again 16mm in total had not fallen the month would have been very dry. There were no storms to report although thunder was heard on 5th and 6th. The winds were light throughout the month with a total of 17 days from a North Easterly quadrant
The month was sunny with a total of 184.42 hours recorded. On the 22nd the day after the summer solstice a remarkable figure of 15.68 hours of sun was recorded. There were 4 sunless days within the month.

STATION NOTES.

November 2010 was a below average month temperature in all aspects. November can be described as a dramatic month with a great contrast between the start and thee end of the month. The latter part of the month was cold enough to bring the month well below the monthly means. November also had the first stormy spell of weather for several years during the 12th. It was my privilege to fly out of Leeds Bradford airport on that morning and we spent over 1 hour taxing and holding waiting for a break in the cross wind which finally came allowing us to take off one we were above the clouds it was a matter of banking and flying South to the sun. On my return home I recorded a maximum of 33.8 mph which was a lot less than I anticipated. It only goes to show the difference between a high level sight and also a low level site. The month commenced on a warm note with a maximum of 17.1c recorded on the 4th also the successive day was warm as were the 11th and 112th when the maximum recorded was 11.6c. The temperatures then fell away with a cold spell setting in on the 25th and temperatures plummeting towards the end of the month. Rainfall was below average 63.4 mm giving a total of 79% the only day of an appreciable rain was the 2nd when 13.9 mm was recorded. Snow arrived overnight on the 30th giving 12cm of fresh snow. More Heavy Snow fell during the evening bringing a depth of 19 cm by the morning. On the 7th and 8th with the advent of a storm the pressure fell from 1014 mb at 09z on the 7th to 970 mb on the morning of the 8th.

The attached is a report from the Radio Sheffield web site for the morning of December 1st 2010

Snow brings part of South Yorkshire to a standstill
1st December 2010
Heavy snow has caused major disruption to South Yorkshire, bringing parts of the county to a standstill.
About 300 schools are shut and bus services have been suspended in Sheffield, Rotherham, and Doncaster.
The inclement weather has also caused delays and cancellations on train services between Sheffield and Leeds.
Flights at Robin Hood Airport have been suspended, many roads are closed and South Yorkshire Police are urging people not to drive.
Hospitals are advising patients not to attend unless it is urgent, and are asking off-duty medical staff to make their way into work if they can.
Services suspended
Bus operator First said on Wednesday it had decided to stop all of its services due to the "serious and unsafe condition" of many roads.
Sheffield Supertram said it had also suspended services between Cathedral and Herdings Park due to the adverse weather conditions.
On the roads the A57 Snake Pass and the A628 Woodhead Pass were both closed and driving conditions were said to be "difficult" on the M62.
South Yorkshire Police said they had 4 x 4 vehicles out trying to clear roads.
Sheffield council said it had used 4,000 tonnes of salt in November alone on the city's roads - an unprecedented amount for the time of year.

STATION NOTES.

The month of December 2010 was a very interesting month to observe. We started the month with the ground already covered by snow to a depth of 8 cms and during the 1st further snow fell a total of 11 cms giving a total depth of 19 cms. On the 2nd snow showers occurred giving a further 2 cms making a total of 21 cms. On the 3rd and the 4th further snow showers occurred giving a further 1 cm each day and overall a grand total of 23cm in the old imperial just over 9” in depth. We then had a thaw and again snow showers in the evening of the 7th.on the 11th the snow had all gone. This was the first period of lying snow from the 1st to the 10th inclusive. There was a shower of small hail on the 15th.

On the 16th we had rain turning to sleet and then snow giving a new depth of 1 cm on the morning of the 17th. On the 18th we had snow showers on the 22nd snow flurries overnight and again on the 23rd. We had a shower of grauple on the 25th then snow flurries on the 26th and as I observed on the 27th light snow was falling which then turned to sleet then rain over the 24 hours period. On the 28ththe snow had all melted away with the arrival of the warm conditions.

Whilst I was about on the morning of the 17th I noticed “Diamond Dust” falling in the intense sunlight which was a first for me again.

Much had been written about the intense cold temperatures A Mean Maximum of 3.3c which is -3.7c against the averages. Mean Minimum -1.2c which is -3.5 against the averages and the mean 1.0c which is -3.7c against the averages new records well the means in 1981 were colder Maximum 2.2c, Minimum -1.8c and the Mean 0.2c.

The period 1st to the 9th inclusive saw minimum temperatures both in the air and on the grass below zero. Then came a warm interlude through to the 16th when the cold began to set in again during this period on the 11th a maximum temperature of 8.8c was recorded with the 10th also having a high maximum of 7.7c.

The real intense cold saw ICE DAYS on the 17th through to the 21st inclusive with a minimum air temperature of -7.4c and a grass minimum of -9.0c recorded on the 20th. We still had minimum air temperatures right through to the 27th and then the temperatures became warmer.

The month was dry with a total of 41.4 mm of precipitation recorded 48% of the average. 7.5mm of that total was sleet and rain which fell on the 27th the remaining total75% of that was snow melt.

The winds were light 2.4 mph was the average for the month with West been the dominant quadrant 12 days Westerly and 6 days North Westerly. On the evening of 10th we had a strange occurrence. The wind was blowing from the West-North West about 21.00 hours the wind picked up speed and I recorded a gust of 34.2 mph and I am in the lee of some local high ground. The sky was clear and the humidity plummeted. This occurs in the Sheffield area as the winds are squeezed by inversion over the Peak District Hills giving “Lee Waves”.

The enclosed is a footnote to the gale of 16th February 1962 which caused major damage to the City
Sheffield lies to the east of the Pennines. Airstreams undulating over the peaks of the Pennines give a constricting increase to wind speed on the heights and turbulent eddying on the lee side as the wind descends to valley level. What did occur was an inversion.
An upper layer of air had a higher temperature than the colder air beneath it. As cold air is heavier than warm air it meant that the prevailing westerly air-stream was deprived of any natural buoyancy and in effect "bounced" back from the upper area of warmer air. The downward movement was transmitted to the airflow giving considerable compression near the ground. The air bounced back from the ground and a pronounced vertical wave motion developed. It was the length and amplitude of this motion together with the height of the temperature inversion and the wind speed that put Sheffield under this trough. I believe that the phenomena is also called a "lee wave wind"

03 December 2010 Local Press

Weston Park weather station has recorded the lowest November temperature since its records began in 1882, the deepest snow since 1958

The temperature hit minus 7.2C on Wednesday night.

On Wednesday, it also recorded the deepest total snow depth since 1958 - some 63 centimetres, more than two feet.

It was also the deepest snow measured in November or December since records began in 1909 and the largest snowfall in 24 hours since 2000.

Police today warned of a new threat of black ice as melted snow froze overnight and are again urging motorists not to venture out today unless their journey is essential, and to take extra care if they have to use their cars.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: "Roads which have not yet been treated could be in their worst condition yet today.

"And on other roads, ice and snow which has melted will have re-frozen, creating a new danger of black ice. We would advise people not to drive but, if their journey is necessary, they should take extra care."

Meanwhile police have been working to rescue more than 100 car and lorry drivers who were stranded on the A57 between Todwick and Worksop for two nights

STATION NOTES.

January 2011 was an average month temperature wise with the means almost on the average. The month had a warm spell 12th – 16th inclusive with a maximum of 12.6c on the 13th with a cold spell on the last 5 days of the month when the minimum was -2.5c on the 31st. Within the month there were 17 days of ground frosts


Nevertheless it was rainfall which was the feature or lack of it as I recorded 44% of the January average with 12.1mm on the 7th which included 3cms of snow melt accounting for 33% of the total recorded. From the middle of the month onwards 1.5 mm only was recorded.

Snow fell on 3 days within the month yet there was a wind from a westerly quadrant on 16 days within the month

STATION NOTES.

February 2011 was a mild month which finished winter on a mild note with the mean temperatures well above average. If a cold spell had not occurred between the 13th – 23rd inclusive it would have been a warmer month. Ground frosts were only recorded on 4 mornings

The feature on the month was the amount of rain. I recorded rain on 20 of the days within the month with the 3rd, 4th and 5th making up the bulk of the rainfall. 46.3 mm recorded in the 3 days with the wettest the 3rd with 22.5 mm.

Sleet fell on the 14th and on the 18th and 21st Snow fell along with a light snow shower on the 28th

Sunshine was at a premium as I recorded 5 consecutive sunless days with only 43 hours on sunlight recorded.

The 1st to the 7th saw the highest wind gusts with 36.5 mph recorded on the 4th

STATION NOTES.

March 2011 was a record breaker in terms of rainfall. I recorded just 7mm which is 9% of the average. The wettest day was the 30th when 2.7 mm was recorded this was preceded by 1.8mm on the 13th. The 5th, 6th, 10th 16th and 17th gave the remainder of the total. This was the driest March on record locally for 58 years.

March was above normal temperature wise with a good warm spell from the 21st to the 25th and the plant growth was most notable, with the temperature peaking at 18.8c on the 23rd. The 26th was a cold day with a sudden plunge in temperature with a maximum of 8.4c recorded that day. The morning of the 8th under clear skies gave an air frost when -0.4c was recoded as a minimum throughout the month 11 ground frosts were recoded.

The month was not like a lion but more like a lamb with a mean wind speed of 19 mph. Winds were dominant from a South Westerly quadrant and the end of the month saw a gust of 37.6 mph. There was a further windy day on 10th when a gust of 36.5 mph was recoded.

STATION NOTES.

April 2011 was a record breaking month in terms of warmth for this time of the year beating the previous records which were set in April 2007. The mean maximum was +5.6 c. The mean minimum was + 3.7c and the mean was +4.1c. There were cool nights the minimum on the 4th was 4.9c, the 12th 5.2c and the 28th gave a minimum of 4.4c. This was offset by warm days the period 21st to 23rd gave maximum temperatures of + 20c

On the 1st a gust of37.6 mph was recorded. The wind direction was predominantly northerly on 14 of the days within the month. It was also a sunny month with sunshine 135% of the average

The month was dry with 17 consecutive days with no rain during the period 6th to the 22nd. On the 3rd and 4th over the two days 9.3mm of rain fell.

Then came the event of note on Saturday 23rd. There were warnings of thunderstorms given and the met office graphics were showing heavy rain for the part of Sheffield in which we live. During the day the temperature climbed to 23.5c. We were out visiting and at 14.30 we heard the first thunder accompanied by a flash of lightning.

Welcome rain at long last for the bone dry garden. We then had small hail to start the storm; this was followed by heavy rain as we set off home down the hill into Hillsborough. We were met by flooded roads and as I drive an MG Salon which is low I turned back to find another way home. As we were standing in traffic we experienced large hailstones which sounded like machine gun fire on the car roof this left un-flooded ground covered with a blanket of hail. Finally after parking up the car and allowing the storm to abate we finally made it to higher ground and home. Manhole covers were tossed into the air and I observed a fountain of water from 1 drain about 1 metre high.

I enclose an extra from the local paper with comments from the metro Group “I t6hink it’s a combination of a few things, such as how the ground is surrounding Sheffield. The moors south west of the city aid the lifting of the air a bit more. The hot and cold winds would have met in the Peak District, with the warm sunshine increasing the heat and moisture in the air.

These ingredients came together over Sheffield – the lift from the hills, the sunshine and the cold air in the upper atmosphere made the conditions moister. They came together in sufficient quantities over Sheffield to create a thunderstorm which was slow moving owning to the light winds which were shifting from the South to the East.

In a nutshell it was the humidity near the ground surface and the uplift from the moors and converging winds. It is stated that the large hailstones formed in freezing clouds about 2.5 kilometres above the ground and remained unusually large as they had only a short distance to travel from the sky.

It is reported that 42mm rain fell in about 2 hours I live about 2 miles away from the centre and I recorded 10.8 mm it was so local that a station the other side of town recorded only 1mm

STATION NOTES.

May was another warm month and the temperatures exceed those of Aprils which were above average therefore taking into account the longer days the weather was exceptional

Rainfall was more than some other parts of the country I recorded 76% of my local average there were 19 days in which rainfall was recorded with the 7th producing 15.3 mm followed by the 30th with 5.7 mm

It was a windy month with the mean wind speed at 09z working out over the month a 5.0 mph the trees always appeared to be moving in the breeze.

The warmest day was the 6th when the maximum recorded was 23.3 c and yet part of the day was cool and overcast so the forecasted storms were not triggered as the temperature did not climb to the expected heights. On the 4th there was a ground frost and I recorded a grass minimum of -0.4c the minimum air temperature that night was 2.8c. All the cold nights occurred in the first few days of the month. A maximum of 20c + was reached on the 5th to the 11th inclusive and again on the 17th. Thereafter during the months the temperatures dropped slightly

June was not worthy on the title of “Flaming June” this year. The month started off with high temperatures and then they fell away. Contrast the 10th the maximum was only 14.4 and on the 12th the minimum was 6.0c this was the day we had 21.1 mm of rain. If it were not for the 2 hot days the 26th Maximum 29.5 and the 27th maximum 31.3c with a minimum temperature that night of 19c it would have been a cold month.

We had a short lived storm at noon on the 8th with nothing spectacular. In the day we only had 6.7 mm of rain. In total rainfall worked out at 84% of the average. We had rain on 5 days running 20th to the 24th inclusive giving a total of 21.5 mm and on the 12th we had 21.1 mm of rain.

It was never a windy month with winds dominant from the southerly quadrant.

STATION NOTES.

August was a month that will live in the memory for a very long time here in Burncross. I knew that there was an aurora alert issued for the evening of 6th August. Not expecting to see a thing as I retired to bed the lights went off and the curtains were opened and despite all the light pollution I could see in the North a green glow amongst the cloudy conditions, if I would have had a clear night the display would have been outstanding.

August again continued the dry conditions with only 62% of the average rainfall recorded 41mm in total but for the 22mms which fell during the 24th and 26th it would have been a dry month. There was a slight storm in the evening of the 3rd with no appreciable rain recorded but 40 miles to the East if was a different picture.

Temperature wise the period 1st – 3erd inclusive was warm with a maximum of 28.6 with heavy storms forecast yet we only got a slight storm with 2.2mm of rain. The 26th was a cold day with a maximum of 14.0c recorded although it was sunless all day which accounted for a low maximum. Overall the mean temperatures for August were just above the average.

September was a warm and dry month. This is surprising as ex hurricane Katina did not produce very much rain, during the passage of the storm pressure fell to 993 mb with a maximum wind speed of 27.1 mph and rain 4 mm in total. There were no Thunderstorms within the month.

Rainfall was recorded on 13 days within the month but amounts were small and only gave a total of 26.7 mm which is 42% of the average for the city.

We booked a few days away on the Lincolnshire Coast and we basked in the Warm Weather. When we arrived on Monday 26th we were treated to a very bright sundog within the cirrus cloud. Then the hot weather arrived and when I am away I have my next door neighbour reads the instrumentation. On the 30th the maximum recorded was 27.2 c the warmest night was 22nd when the air temperature was 15.5c. In contrast the lowest maximum was 8.7c on the 15th with a grass minimum of 6.3 c and the highest minimum was 14.2c on the 29th

STATION NOTES.

March 2012 was a sunny dry and warm month with temperatures above the means; it was more like summer in the last week of the month than spring.

The le3ngthening days produced some exceptional sunshine figures 26th gave 11.65 hours, the 27th gave 11.72 hours, the 28th gave 11.60 hours, the 29th 10.30 hours and the 30th 10.53 hours. These figures gave a boost to the month with a total of 169.98 hours of sunshine recorded which is 157% of the average.

It got warm from the 25th onwards culminating in a maximum of 20.9c on the 28th until the 30th the quite nights gave fog each morning from the 22nd to the 25th inclusive this prevented ground frosts as I only recorded 5 within the month. The mean temperatures were well above normal with the coldest night on the 6th when the minimum air temperature was 1.0c with a grass minimum -2.1c.

The lack of rainfall again was the concern as rainfall was recorded on only 7 days within the month a total of 31mm was recorded which is 51% of the local average. 16.2 mm of rainfall fell on the 17th.

STATION NOTES.

August was a warm month but wet with above average rainfall again.

Most of this month was on the warm side with a high maximum of 26.1 c on the 14th and a high minimum of 13.4 c on the 30th although there never was a hot spell throughout the month.

There was a very cold night in the month the 30th under clearing skies temperatures plummeted with a screen minimum of 7.0 c and a grass minimum of 3.5 c which is a record for an August night. The same trend was applicable throughout the County of Yorkshire.

Rainfall was a fairly dry month up to the 15th when 15.7 mm was recorded on the 25th which had two storms within the day one at noon and one later in the afternoon when 29.2 mm was recorded this was not at all surprising as a drove home through a rushing torrent of water 60 mm deep in places. These falls made up a 110 mm which is 163% of the average

Sunshine again was below average with 112.09 hours recorded which is 88% of the average on the 9th 11.96 hours of sunshine was recorded with only one sunless day within the month

There was a Thunder Storm on the evening of the 13th lasting from 19.00 hours through to 21.00 hours with not a large volume of rain but good activity although I was indoors for the duration.

Sunshine was below average with 127.72 hours recorded equating to 81% of the average. There were 6 sunless days however the lengthening days produced 14.59 hours on the 16th.

STATION NOTES

December 2015 was a warm, wet and dull month.

The moth was very mild commencing with double figure maximum until the 8th when a period of single figure maximums was recorded apart from 1 day which was 12th. The 13th was the notable day with a maximum of 6.6c a minimum of 0.1c and a grass temperature of -2.9c the only ground frost within the month. From the 15th onwards it was double figure maximums until the end of the month with the 18th and 19th yielding maximums of 15.2.

The maximum mean air temperature was a new record 11.4c beating 11.0c set in 2000. The monthly mean air temperature of 8.9c was not a record it was beaten by 1994 with a mean of 9.3c.

The month was very dull with a total of 27.3 hours of sunlight recorded just 50% of the average the most sun was on the 29th when a paltry 4.37 hours we4re recorded with 15sunless days within the month.

Rainfall 97.8 mm was 113% of the average. The 12th produced a rainfall total of 16.8mm and heavy rain of the 30th produced 13.8 mm. Within the month only 3 days were recorded without rain. We enjoyed Christmas day in Halifax when over 25mm of rain fell and yet when we arrived home only 9.9mm was recorded and on our journey home to Sheffield we ran out of the rain. Yet the Calder Valley suffered from floods.

During the month wind was a feature the average at 09z was 8.4 mph and during the month 14 days were from a Southerly Direction and 11 from a South Westerly direction. The passage of Storm Desmond on the 4th gave a maximum wind speed of 57.6 mph within the month gales were recorded on 11 days.

In March of this year I was in Iceland looking at the aurora and I always look out locally in a dark area when the conditions are right. On the 20th about 20.45 I observed a slight glow and again on the 31st a slight glow was noticed at 23.05 hours before the fireworks started to welcome the New Year

The following day the snow showers commenced and lasted of and on throughout the 2nd and 3rd. The Met Office put out a warning for snow on the morning of the 4th and we in North Sheffield caught the back edge of the snow which had fallowing of part of Lancashire and West Yorkshire I measured a covering of 5 cm at my location and on the higher ground the snow was heavy accompanied by winds speeds of roughly 25 mph. It is little wonder that the A57 Snake Pass was blocked followed by the A629 Woodhead Pass and difficult driving conditions prevailed over the tops of the M62 into Greater Manchester. The covering of snow I had melted during the day and 5th and 6th further snow showers followed.

Temperature wise on the 4th the maximum was 2.7c and the minimum was 1.1c. The clear night of the 7th through to the morning of the 8th produced a grass minimum of -8.6c. with an air frost of -1.9c. Sunshine was below average with 84.c hours recorded this is 84% of the average on the 7th under the clear conditions 9.91 hours of sunlight was recorded.

STATION NOTES.

September was a mild month with above average sunshine and rainfall almost on the monthly mean. The winds were predominantly from a southerly quadrant bringing the warmth. Sunshine was above average and rainfall was just below average.

The month started on a mild note and on the 6th a maximum of 26.8 was recorded. On the 9th two cool days followed on the 13th a maximum of 26.7 c was recorded. This spell of warmth created a mean monthly temperature of 15.8c this was well short of the 17.3c recorded in September 2006.

On the 3rd 17.1 mm of rain fell and even during the storm of the 13th we only had 8.7mm of rainfall although we had large hail falling. The storm lasted from 18.40 hours to 19.45 hours and was an intense storm with vivid lightning. On the morning of the 16th at 03z we had another storm although I slept through it which gave 3 mm of rainfall
