My statistics for central Reading in January:

Average maximum: 9.1
Average minimum: 2.7
Average for month: 5.9

Highest maximum: 14.6 (24 January)
Lowest maximum: 3.5 (17)
Highest minimum: 9.5 (27)
Lowest minimum: -6.0 (20)

Air frosts: 6
Days with thunder heard: 0
Days with fog at 9am: 2

Days with falling snow: 1
Days with lying snow at 9am: 1

Rainfall: Reading University recorded 97mm for the month, which is 160% of average.
Sunshine: Reading University shows around 52 hours for the month, which is about 90% of average.

On average a wet, rather dull and slightly milder than average month, the third mild and dull month in a row but not as extreme as November and December in either respect.  Unsettled and generally mild early and late in the month with a clear cold spell in the middle producing the lowest temperature recorded here since February 2012, -6.0 on the 20th.  Flurries early on the 17th left just enough snow on the ground at 9am to count as a day with lying snow, but this rapidly turned to rain and disappeared by mid-morning.

January - Hobart, Tasmania

This was the fifth month in a row to be warmer and drier than average. A record was set for highest mean minimum temperature for January (records began in 1882). Temperature anomalies ( below ) are 1981-2010 comparison.

Average maximum:  22.5 ( +0.3 )

Average minimum:  14.4 ( +1.8 ).................previous record 14.0 in 1981

Rainfall:  40mm ( average 48mm )

Rain days (+1mm ): 5/from 9

A significant rain event in Tasmania from the 28th-30th, as tropical moisture from the eastern seaboard fed into a near stationary area of low pressure which formed to the west, and then remained near stationary to the north- north east. A three day cumulative total in the order of 150-300mm in the north and east, tapering off to 30mm in Hobart in the south east. This was the bulk of the cities monthly total. A generally mild to warm and settled month to that point with no extreme heat days ( +35C ). Smoke haze at times from a high number of bushfires burning in western Tasmania, an area which has been spectacularly dry since the beginning of spring.

Extreme in daily temperature for January ( records since 1882 )

Highest maximum:  34.4......13th ( record 41.8 in 2013 )

Lowest maximum;  17.3........2nd ( record 11.1 in 1885 )

Highest minimum:  17.6.......29th ( record 23.4 in 2013 )

Lowest minimum:  9.8..........15th ( record 3.3 in 1902 )
