Wintry conditions have been cast upon the UK over the past month, with scarves, hats and gloves becoming necessities. Risks of snow, freezing temperatures and extreme winds have been issued, but some sunny spells prove that it’s not all bad!
Earlier this month, Storm Imogen brought some incredibly strong winds across South-west England, with a wave height of 19.1m (63ft) recorded off the coast of St Ives in Cornwall, and an average of 70-80mph winds felt in many areas.
However, the forecast for March is looking up, and the beginning of the spring season should see an improvement in the weather. The average temperature is due to increase, with daily highs rising from 10°C at the beginning of the month to 13°C by the end, going above 17°C or falling below 8°C very rarely.
The length of the day will expand by 1 hour and 58 minutes in total. The shortest day will fall on March 1st with 10 hours and 57 minutes of daylight, and the longest day will fall on March 31st, with 12 hours and 55 minutes of daylight.
