December 2013 – Weather statistics for watford, UK

December 2013 has been notable for the amount of damaging storms we have had plus the overall warmth. It has been the stormiest December since 1969 and the stormiest month since January 1993. The highest temperature recorded was in Scotland 16.6c.

The jet stream is a ribbon of fast moving air below the tropopause which has been at its strongest for a while. One of the reasons for the storms is the unusually mild Atlantic ocean and the extremely cold air over north America. 

In the CET area the final figure came out at 6.34c which is nearly 2c above normal.

January outlook
The rest of January is looking wet and mild with an increase in cold weather for the final week of the month.
