This is a private automatic weather station (AWS) based in South East England, and reported data is neither official nor part of the UK Met Office network. This AWS does not conform to Met Office standards - which are far too stringent for most amateurs but the readings give a good indication of weather conditions in the "average" local back garden.

Information is provided for general interest only and use of any data is entirely at your own risk. Live weather updates are available most evenings and weekends.


WEATHER: The month was strongly dominated by anti-cyclonic conditions with high pressure often to the SE of the UK. The first week of the month was cool with some frosty nights and sunny days. The next three weeks were generally mild and dull with the occasional sunny day but with frequent drizzle and some fog. The last few days were cool with some persistent and dense fog.
TEMPERATURE: Mean 0.3 °C above average. Daytime temperatures were generally above the site average apart from the first and last few days of the month. Nighttime temperatures slightly below the site average with 6 air frosts.
RAINFALL: 11.0 mm, 15% of site average. Despite the lowest December total in the site records there were 14 days with precipitation recorded, much of this was drizzly and some from condensation from fog or melted frost. No snow fell in the month.
