    No spectacular monthly records broken. As my station is only 4 miles north of Mark's our records are very similar.

    Lowest Humidity of 36% on 28 Feb.

    Highest Daily Range of 14.6C. -2.5 to 12.1 also on the 28th.

    Longest Dry Period of 14 days to 28 Feb but it will continue for a few days more.

    Lowest Daily Range remains at 1.7 back on 21 Feb 2011.

    I wonder what delights March will bring. :D
    Cheers,
    Ray, Cheshire.

    Only 1 new record for Feb 2013 here at Loomberah:
    Highest daily wind run: 500.4km, also the highest wind speed record of 63km/hr was equalled, as it was in Jan.
    Rather pathetic in comparison with Steve's wind records!

    Jan was the month for high temp records here, and lowest range!

    Only one station record for Feb 2013 (since 2009) Highest Hourly Rainfall = 4.6 mm (but then we don't get a lot of rain in the winter and get snow instead).

    Also Monthly Lowest Temperature Daily Range = 0.0 but that was likely when I had a station glitch.

    February 2013 has brought quite a bit more snow than in December or January this season but still less than normal, and no major storms. Feb 2013 =
    15 - number of days with snowfall (30 days for winter season so far - 3 days in Feb 2012)
    61 cm - total snowfall (111 cm for season so far - 21 cm in Feb 2012)
    28 - number of days with snow on the ground (61 days for season so far - 9 days in Feb 2012)
    280 - snow index, sum of daily snow on ground (541 for season so far - 97 in Feb 2012)
    10 cm - average daily snow on ground (12 cm historical average - 2.3 cm in Feb 2012)

    February 2013 was rather unspectacular here with a temperature span in the whole month of just 13 degrees Kelvin (Min:-5.7°C; Max: 7.3°C). So this was the only thing that was a record here.

    Otherwise it was just an ordinary month with rainfall and temperatures very close to the longterm average values of 1961-1990 (this is also the longterm period which is used by the German Weather Service DWD).
    Best Regards
