 Comparing March monthsClimate March 2013.

In most ways, the month was like March last year: a bit cool, particularly in the day-time, but warm in the subsoil, and rather cloudy, but not humid. However, there was much more rain.

The total rainfall (84.6 mm) was in the 80th percentile, far above the mean of 53.3 mm. Rainfall totals for groups of months (2 months up to 360 months) are now all above their median values. The 36-month total of 2328 mm is extremely high, near the 36-month record of 2662 mm set in October 1998.
