Monthly Weather Summary

MARCH - After the winter just gone March was much quieter and remained on the mild side. MSLP was back to 'normal' and just slightly above average and with a few periods of high pressure we had some quite agreeable sunny days (3rd-4th, 10-13th and 24th). It was still fairly wet with 92.5 mm and towards the months end when we sat towards the edge of the high pressure we had cool winds (westerly 14-16th and easterly 25-29th) with the month ending with a run of murky days. At 6.45°c the warmest March since only 2012 and 1.0°c above average and the wettest March since 2008.
