Coldest Ever December!

modis_uk_snowCongratulations every one! We have just got through what is now officially the coldest December since records began a century ago!

We all knew it was pretty cold! Across the country we struggled to get around whether in cars, planes or on our own feet as winds from the arctic made temperatures plummet.

But did you know that across the country the average temperature was actually below freezing point? Temperatures averaged at -1 C.

This is a whole 5 degrees less than the usual temperature for December which is around 4 C.

On the plus side, the snow allowed for some fantastic snowball fights!

Bizarrely, despite December breaking records for being cold, last year was actually amongst the hottest years on record.

Let’s just hope January is a bit warmer!
