December 2018 Weather Report This summary is compiled


from the records of Stephen Bartholomew of Beccles.


Max. Temperature- 14.4C (57F) on 2nd compared with 13.0C (55F) in December 2017. Min. Temperature- -1.5C


(29F) on 28th compared with -2.0C (28F) in December 2017. Avg. Max. Temp- 9.26C (48F)


– 2018. 7.39C (45F) – 2017. 7.49C (45F) – Average. Avg. Min. Temp- 4.40C (40F)


– 2018. 2.44C (36F) – 2017. 2.72C (36F) – Average. Mean Temp- 6.83C (44F)


– 2018. 4.92C (40F) – 2017. 5.10C (41F) – Average. Air Frosts- 3 compared with 9 in December 2017. Rainfall Total- 2.39” compared with 5.12” in December 2017. (30-year(1981- 2010) Average 2.27”). (2018 Total- 105% of average). Most Rainfall On One Day- 0.44” on 15th. Wind Direction- mainly


from:- South-West 8 days, South-East 5 days, West 5 days, North-West 5 days, calm 4 days. December 2018 was milder and slightly wetter than long-


term average. The month started with an exceptionally mild eight days (except the 4th), for this time of the year during which daytime temperature averaged just under 12C. This being more in keeping with a normal late March/early April day and over 4C higher than long-term average for December. The mildest day (2nd) recorded 14.4C, highest for the month since 15.1C on 22/12/2015. There were four other days during this early period which noted between 12.5C and 13.0C. Similarly there were some unseasonable mild nights, the 10.0C minimum noted overnight 6th/7th was the highest for December since 2015. There were four other mild nights within this early period, but at this time of the year sunny days are often followed by chilly nights and so it proved overnight 3rd/4th and 4th/5th, we did actually avoid an air frost on these nights but were not so fortunate on three other nights later in the month. But for a chilly spell 10th to 16th inclusive and odd cooler days,


23rd to 25th, the eventual result would have been even more impressive. After Christmas Day milder


air was once again established over the southern part of the British Isles. Again there was no chance of a White Christmas which have been few on my recording history, only two actual snowfalls on the day in 1970 and 2010. However snow lying on ground was noted in 1981 and near misses occurred with falls on Boxing Day in 1995 and 1996. We only have to go back three


years to December 2015 to find a milder example and the very mildest December on my entire 51 year record. This overall was the fifth mildest behind 1974, 1985 and 1988, as well as 2015. The 2.39” rainfall total finished off what had been a variable year to record an annual total of 23.21”, around two and a half inches below average compared with long-term. This was one of seven months to record total in excess of two inches, compared to four months which were exceptionally dry,


Rose Cottage Cats


I WROTE recently about two of our cats that had gone missing, one a black Mum from The Rescue, and the other a ginger of mine. We have had some positive results. Two people contacted us regarding the black Mum (they had each been feeding a black stray). The first one we saw was not her, but the 2nd we think probably was. However, she did not wish to settle in with her babies (big now) again and they backed away from her. So we put her in a separate pen, where she settled down happily and is showing signs of being pregnant! That's what we had expected to have happened if she came back so she will stay till she has birthed and raised her kittens, then be spayed and found a new home. As regards the ginger, we


heard nothing. However, some weeks on I was in our "Nursery Shed" one early evening, talking to them as I settled them down. When I opened the door


to go back to the house, my ginger boy came to the door from behind the shed and had a big fuss, then turned and ran

across the garden to the house and hid behind the dust bins. I'd finished the rescue cats


for the evening, so I also walked across the garden and opened the back door. He shot in with me, licked a couple of cat bowls clean and ran upstairs on to my bed, as he usually did. He is doing so still, every evening, and my boy is back. He is noticeably bigger than he was, he is now full grown, and my other cats knew him too! There are so many sad


stories of cats that disappear, it is lovely to have a happy ending to tell you of. The sad news to tell you is that due to health issues


(mine), the Rescue is slowing down to an eventual halt. How quickly, will depend somewhat on the rate at which the cats are given homes. My husband also has some health issues, and is less able to cover


all the matters that I can't cope with or don't have time for. I'll still be seeing people until the rescue is empty, meantime please accept my best wishes, and love to your cats.


particularly memorable because of its continuity (May to July inclusive and September). Low Pressure influenced


much of the first and third weeks of December, which by no coincidence were the wetter parts of the month. Deep depressions and their associated fronts made a huge impression 15th to 23rd inclusive and produced 1.66”, or nearly 70% of the whole month’s total. During this period four of the five “wetter” days which recorded three tenths of an inch of rain or more were noted, up to 0.44” recorded on 15th. High Pressure rebuilt just before Christmas and maintained to the end of the year to create the second notable dry spell of the month of eight days, there having been six consecutive dry days 9th to 14th inclusive. Wind direction throughout the


month again had a huge South to West type bias, meant that barring a short period just before the middle of the month we were looking to the Atlantic Ocean for our weather conditions.
