A “WARM, CLOUDY AND WET MONTH!”:
In Buxton our average day/night temperature in February was 5.9C – this was the warmest February in my own 20 year daily records at www.buxtonweather.co.uk – the average is less the 3C!
According to The Met Office February 2024 was the warmest February ever entered in their records –Their records reveal that in records back into the 1800’s, the ten warmest Februarys on record include 2019, 2022, 2023 and now 2024.
It was a poor month for sunshine in Buxton with some 25 hours recorded in the month – roughly half what we normally experience.
It was also a very wet month with 186mm (7 inches) - around twice our normal February rainfall!
All roadside and bird cameras are now back on! - have bird box cameras installed now too - will start transmitting if we get lucky again!

Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
.................Friday 8 Mar - Sunday 17 Mar
A largely dry start to this period with variable cloud and just a few light showers, sunniest in the west. However, while such conditions will be maintained across the north, there is an increasing chance of more unsettled weather returning from the south or southwest during the first weekend, with spells of rain moving north and tending to weaken as they do so. This sets the broad pattern for the subsequent week, with periods or rain or showers in the south accompanied by strong winds at times, and brighter but occasionally showery conditions across the north. Temperatures are most likely to be close to normal, but perhaps mild at times in the south and, especially early on, locally rather cold in the north.
Monday 18 Mar - Monday 1 Apr
During the second half of March, pressure is likely to remain higher than average to the north or northwest of the UK, which would push the focus of unsettled weather further south than usual (especially early in this period), although there are signs that changeable weather patterns may return more widely later in the month. The greatest build-up of rain is therefore most likely to be in the south, with northern areas rather drier compared with normal. Temperatures will probably be near average overall, with some colder interludes most likely in the north and east....................................
