Given my earlier requirements for feeling like it didn't turn out so bad in the end, it's bound to come in at 3.01°C .
Joking aside, Jan 2021 would be in my top 3 most disappointing winter months on record were it not for the few days of bright, cheerful weather followed by some snow last Sunday.
Aside from that it's been cloudy, variably very chilly to mild, increasingly wet. Poisons the soul. The polar boundary often being just 100 miles or so too far north hasn't helped with the mood - both in terms of local weather and the CET outcome.
Here's hoping February is brighter and less rainy down south - I could really do with it!
