|March||7.0||1.3||provisional, to the 30th|
Not bad figures and + 1.3 degree over is quite some jump (March 2008 was -0.4degrees). Although, must remember the -1.0 degree drop in December 2008 ; an up and down year.
2007 was up and down too, and March 2007 had a +1.6 degree jump but and -0.4 degree drop for August. And just for good measure, in 2006, March had -0.8 degree drop but was a lovely hot year with jump in July of +3.7 degrees.
Overall, if you want a bell-weather prediction - it seems the higher the jump in March CET from average then the gloomier and wetter and cooler the summer.
Onwards to April....
