January 2017 was a wet month. Just over 64mm of rain was recorded, 121 per cent of average, slightly less than last January.
The monthly mean finished 6.4C, 1.2C above average and the mildest January for four years.
Some 44 hours of sunshine were recorded, 88 per cent of average, the dullest January for six years.
The most notable event was during the early hours of the 18th when the ‘storm with no name’ felled many mature trees across a swathe of England, including a large beech on Blake Hall Road that led to the closure of the road during morning rush hour.
Air frosts: 4. Ground frosts: 12. Snow falling: 1
