Thought I would have look at some weather data from my weather station for March 2016, 2017 & 2018 (period 1st - 21st)
Rainfall
2016 32.8mm
2017 44.4mm
2018 13.2mm

Average temps
2016 6.7c
2017 8.5c
2018 4.1c
The highest temps (upto 21/3) was only 1c difference between them
Might wait a little longer to sow the Tommys and cukes.

Punk isn't dead...it's underground where it belongs. If it comes to the surface it's no longer punk...it's Green Day!

The rainfall figures are interesting there Aidy. The West usually has higher rainfall amounts than the East but that seems to have reversed in March with all these eastern weather systems we've had.

Looking at a local weather station very close to where I live the rainfall figure for us (for the same date range) is currently 28.6mm which is over double your amount. It does actually feel like that should be a lot higher too as everything is absolutely saturated around here at the moment and there's quite a lot of visible standing water on the lower lands.

So for the year to date (JAN 1st - today)
Rainfall

2017   145.8mm
2016   160mm

A much drier year thus far.

Errrr, umm, sorry Aidy - our fields and gardens have never been so wet this Winter! Thankfully they are now drying out due to the easterly winds we've had recently.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

March 2018 is characteristic of a blocked weather pattern. We've had the blocking anticyclone forming over Scandinavia which has resulted in cold easterly winds and snow very late in the winter. The blocked pattern prevents Atlantic low pressure systems (with associated mild damp air) moving across the UK, hence the lack of precipitation.

The Pennines were doing their job Aidy ;)

So for our YTD it's a suprising 91.6mm as I expected our YTD to be lower than the West.

Bumped this thread as I have been looking at some historical weather  :D :D :D

Tis The Grand National this weekend, was chatting with a patient laughing as I was there on Ladies Day 13 years ago and it was freezing, in fact it actually snowed for a spell.

So I have tracked down some Met Office Data for up North for the summer of 2005, it was not a hot one :( and the months before were actually very similar to what we have had this year so far!

So no need to worry about a plague of Ladybirds and I wouldn't bother stocking up on factor 50 either. just my guess.

There is no significant correlation between spring and summer temperatures or rainfall, so what happened 13 years ago is irrelevant in that context.

The only similar relationship I am familiar with is that if the second half of February is colder than normal, the spring as a whole will be colder than normal, which seems to be happening so far this year.
