Hyde Heath Weather Reports 2019 .... by Gary Beynon from his own observations
January February March April May June July August September October November December
Daytime temperatures in January were reasonably mild although not as warm as 2018, the night time in contrast was colder with more frosts. It was a month with a sting in the tail as there was snow and this caused the inevitable disruption despite the relatively small amount. It was, yet again for this winter, a relatively dry month with only half the average rainfall even though there was some ”wet” on 17 of the days. There were many days of cloud when the sky seemed to be on top of us which is a bit depressing and such a contrast with a sunny day when the blue seems to go on forever. January does seem to go in for extremes; the difference between the wettest in 39 years at 190mm and the driest at 12mm is marked.
