March 1915: an interesting month

Recommended Posts

March 1915 was an interesting month. The start of the month began with a polar maritime airmass that brought heavy thundery wintry showers across the South.


There was a pleasant spell just before mid month with temperatures getting into the teens

Crieff: 16.1C on the 12th

Alnwick Castle: 16.7C on the 13th

There was a dramatic change in weather when a developing low dragged very cold air across central and northern areas


This brought gales and drifting snow especially to the Peak District, Pennines and southern Uplands. 5 inches of snow at Macclesfield with 5ft drifts. Sheep farmers suffered badly and railway communications were disrupted.

Conditions eased somewhat but snow showers and frosts continued during the last week


Sunshine totals in hrs

Camden Square: 80

Margate: 96

Worthing: 117.2

Weymouth: 140.8

Bolton: 65

Paisley: 120

Rainfall % of average

England and Wales: 54

Scotland: 79

Ireland: 40

CET: 5.2C
