Grange's February 2017 summary

Very dull, wet and mild.

Rainfall: Wettest February since 2014 but not one of the wettest.
I recorded a rainfall total of 76.8mm (167% of the LTA) which made it my wettest February since 2014 but not one of the wettest on record. February was a contrast with the previous two Winter months rainfall wise as many days were wet. As a matter of fact, only 6 of the 28 days were completely dry in comparison with December and January recording 17 and 20 dry days respectively. With the exception of the 3rd and 23rd, February did not really record very heavy falls of rain but rather frequent days with rain of little spots of rain on and off throughout the days which made it feel very miserable. I recorded 12.9mm on the 3rd but my highest daily rainfall for February was 22.9mm on the 23rd during Storm Doris which was my wettest February day since 2011. To put some optimism into this miserable month, I recorded plenty of snowfall flurries on the 28th but I can't be too optimistic because none of them stuck.

Temperature: Mildest since 2012. First mild February since 2014.
I recorded a mean temperature of 6.3c (+1.7c above the LTA) and this made it my mildest February since 2012 but not one of my mildest on record despite being very mild. This was the first milder than normal February since 2014. After a rather cool first half with a mean temperature of 4.1c (-0.5c below the LTA), the second half was exceptionally mild with a mean temperature of 8.3c (+3.7c above the LTA). The exceptionally mild second half outweighed the rather cool first half and made February mild overall. I recorded a maximum of 14.2c on the 20th, my warmest day in February since 2012 and was higher than the previous two Februarys' (2015 and 2016) maximum temperatures. I recorded a minimum of -4.8c on the 8th which was a very unremarkable minimum temperature. I recorded a maximum of 3.4c on the 10th which made it my coldest February day since 2015.

Sunshine: Very dull, third dullest February on record.
I recorded a sunshine total of 54 hours (71% of the LTA) which made it my third dullest February on record behind only 1993 and 1994. This February was so dull that it made Winter 2016/17 dull overall in spite of December and January being sunny. It did not come to any surprise that February was this dull as the statistics show. It was the dullest February I have experienced in my lifetime. I recorded my highest daily sunshine of 7.1 hours on the 8th, my sunniest day in February since 2011. I recorded 7 completely dull days (days with 0 hours) during February which was my most for February since 2012.

February 2017 is a month that I just want to forget as it was very miserable.
