Yes a wet year here but no idea if it was a record as my Davis data has been on the blink with annual data for some of the years.

close on 600mm is quite high for my garden though and as I have a very sheltered garden more like 700-750mm for this area.

More rain days than average for sure with 201 compared to 160, far less days with snow falling 12 compared to 26 yet 12 days lying snow with a long term average of 11.

Mean temperature was 10.6C(9.6)

Avge Max=14.3(13.4)

Avge Min=6.9(5.8C)

Absolute values were 30.2 and -8.4
