Summary:

March was cold, windy with almost average rainfall.

March was rather colder than average. The low temperatures were caused by the very southerly position of the jet steam, which was as low as southern Spain. This meant that the country was under a mass of cold air for most of the month, this was also accompanied with North Easterly winds making it feel a lot colder. Many parts of the country saw significant snowfall causing widespread disruption to travel too.

Total rainfall for March was 79.5mm (95.7% of average), rain was recorded on 19 of 31 days. The heaviest of which fell on 21st where it rained most of the day totalling 26.8mm, which led to some flooding. A dusting of snow fell in the early hours of the 11th, but soon melted away.

Temperatures were well below average for March. The mean maximum was 7.7C (2.4C below average), the mean minimum was 2.1C (3.2C below average), and the overall Mean for the month was 4.6C (3.1C below average).

The Dominant wind direction was NE. Between 10th and 16th the aneometre seemed to be over-reading due to a problem with the transmitter on the weather station. Since then the transmitter and console have has been replaced and is reading accuratrly again. Max gusts data for this period were changed inline with data from the metoffice weather station at Culdrose.
