Wisborough Green rainfall for March was 94mm (last year 108mm – 10 yr average 59mm).  Over the UK as a whole it was the wettest March for 10 years.  We are all aware it needs to dry up – at time of writing (April 14th) the spring has hardly been spring-like!

Early in March the Beast from the East and the mini Beast certainly caused widespread disruption elsewhere.

Warmest temperature for March was 16.6°c at Colwyn Bay in Wales. Again as I write I don’t think we have reached that which is surely unusual for the first half of April.

So for May. “Ne’er cast a clout till May is out”.  Does May mean the month or does it mean the Hawthorn flower (known as May)?  Not sure – but I do remember in 1976 we had snow on the first day of June and flaming June by the end of the week! .
