The month had a cold start but a warm end a maximum of 12.7 c was recorded on both the 22nd and 23rd. On the morning of the 12th a grass minimum was recorded of -7.5 c.

The weather event of note occurred on the 14th when light drizzle fell onto frozen surfaces causing traffic and pedestrian chaos during the morning rush hour. The roads were not treated for these conditio0ns. So the local radio was instructing people not to travel then just after 10.30 am the temperatures lifted and rain started to fall giving a recorded total of 22.96 mm during the period

January was a dry and cold moth with a lack of sunshine.

The month commenced with the first eight days giving temperatures well above normal. 7 of those days gave a maximum of over 10.0c culminating in a maximum of 12.3 c on the 3rd. The first snow of the winter fell on the 13th and snow was laying on the ground right up to the 27th. When almost all the snow was washed away in the rain in the afternoon of the 25th but not until after the rush hours snow fall during the same morning which brought traffic chaos. During the aforementioned period ground frosts occurred on 13th consecutive days.

Sunshine was in short supply with only 35.95 hours recorded which is 74% of the average locally over the last 10 years. The month for once was dry with only 67% of the normal rainfall recorded including snow melt of 13.0 mm which was recorded on the 25th.

There were no real high winds recorded in this sheltered spot but on the 30th during the passing of a fierce squall small hail fell and 2 flashes of lightning were recorded in the event which lasted from 14.00 hours to 14.30 hours. Locally power outages took place affecting stores and even ATMs

On the early morning of the 22nd @ 04z snow began falling and continued right through into the following day @ 19z when a depth of 21 cms was recorded. Then right through to the 31st on each day snow fell in the form of either showers or flurries and snow was on the ground at the commencement of April.

STATION NOTES.

May marked the end of the very mild months which formed the record breaking Spring of 2014. Day and night time temperatures were just above normal. The first 3 days were cold with a ground frost of -3.2 c recorded on the morning of the 3rd. During the month there was a warm dry spell which lasted from the 15th through to the 21st inclusive with 23.4 c recorded on the 19th.

May was a wet month but certainly not a recorded breaker 188.4 was recorded locally in 1967. There was rain every day 5th through to the 29th inclusive. The highest rainfall total was on the 24th when 15mm fell. 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.
