7th April – 6th May – coldest since 1887

The renewed interest in this blog after it lying dormant for almost a year has spurred me on to post this! I was just wondering to myself how the last month ranked as far as cold was concerned, and provisionally at least, it’s the coldest such period since 1887, if my programming is correct. Despite this fact, temperatures are still being described as ‘chilly’ or ‘rather disappointing’ by the vast majority of weathercasters at the BBC.
