June Weather Report 2012

June Weather report 2012:
I have a tendency, don’t we all, to refer to a month as
‘good’, ‘poor’, ‘average’ etc. Perhaps we apply human attributes to
natural forces.  A good person; one who helps others etc. A good child;
one who is obedient, like a dog!

May Weather Report 2012

May 2012 was a classic example of statistics proving
nothing, because overall temperature and rainfall came out at about what you
might expect from this month. Infact, overall it was the warmest May for
three years, and the wettest for four.
The first twenty days or so however were exceptionally
chilly, and for the first ten of these, wet as well.  There was no
maximum temperature above 17C up to the 20th and 90% of the month’s
total rainfall of 53.9mm fell in the first third of the month. Two light
airfrosts at …
