Complied some interesting stats.  2018 had both the most mentions (perhaps a recenecy bias however) and most favourited months with the following being netweather favourite of each: January

December  2018.....

My memory for weather only really goes back to December 2010, so this is my list based on all months since then. January 2013: Good cold and snowy spell in the middle of the month. February

A great mix there.

My overall favourite must be April 2011. A glorious month always seems that much more glorious after a dreary winter.

Yes it was, plus there was a thunderstorm on the Easter weekend that year if memory serves me well. In the London area, it was hot for a few days. 

This was such a nice contrast to the very cold weather of the previous winter, especially December 2010, ans January 2011.


I forgot to mention December 2017, Feb 2018, March 2018, May, June and July 2018. 

2018 is shaping up to be an interesting year.

Janaury: 2010 down to the very cold and snowy weather, -15.C at the start of the month and -7 maximum as well.

February: 2018, the very cold, snowy weather at the end was the highlight as well as many cold, frosty sunny days.

March: 2012, Due to the unseasonably warm weather towards the end. Near 22.C on the 27th.

April: 2015, with many warm days and chilly nights with rain mostly limited to the last week, nearly double the average amount of sunshine hours  as well

May: 2018, very warm, dry and sunny start of a prolonged heatwave

June: 2018, a wet and windy spell sandwiched between two very hot, dry and sunny spells, 31.0.C reached.

July: 2018, Heat and heat only probably even better than 2006.

August: 2016, Dry and warm particularly in the second half.

September: 2016, Mainly down to that ridiculously warm spell in the second week, minimum of only 16.5.C on the 12-13th then maximum of 25.4.C on the 13th.

October: 2015, very warm at the start and mostly dry and sunny throughout.

November: 2016, due to the many very cold nights, 6 nights fell below -5.C 

December: 2010/2017: 2010 down to the phenomenal cold and snow, 2017 for the variation of very cold and mild.

My memory for weather only really goes back to December 2010, so this is my list based on all months since then.

January 2013: Good cold and snowy spell in the middle of the month.

February 2012: Extremely varied, with bitter easterlies and snow in the first half to warmth and sunshine in the second.

March 2013/2018: The former was snowy and saw some exceptionally cold maxima late on in the month; the latter saw two very extreme cold snaps with some superb drifting snow.

April 2012: Perhaps the most sunshine-and-showers month I can remember, with some beautiful convective cloudscapes producing plenty of showery rain and hail.

May 2012: Another varied month, with very cool but convective weather in the opening two thirds, followed up by a remarkable heatwave.

June 2016: Really struggled with June, but I'll go with 2016 because of how remarkably cloudy it was.

July 2014/2015: The former was a superbly stormy month, with many nights of intense thunderstorms; the latter was extremely varied with record-breaking heat in the opening days and a run of exceptionally cool weather to close the month.

August: Don't know!

September: Don't know!

October 2012/2015: The former was cool, and featured the only falling snow I've witnessed in October; the latter, barring a few days at the end, was cool, crisp, and seasonal.

November 2016: A cool, crisp month, with a wintry feel owing to its plentiful frosty mornings (sadly no snow).

December 2010: Two fantastic snowy spells; deepest level snow I've ever seen; coldest temperature IMBY; consistently below freezing. Need I say more?


Tally per year:

2010: 1

2011: 0

2012: 4

2013: 2

2014: 1

2015: 2

2016: 2

2017: 0

2018: 1

January and December 2010 are probably my two favourite months winter wise. December 2010 was in fact stunning for its rime frosts and then its snowfall just before Christmas. Christmas day 2010 itself was stunningly beautiful with sunshine against a white, snowy landscape. I will count myself extremely lucky if I get to see another winter month like that before I pop my clogs.

January: 2010 (2013 not far behind)

February: 2018 (2010 had more dead front events whereas showers are more exciting)

March: 2012 (Stupidly sunny)

April: 2011 (April is like September to me, boring but 2011 was at least memory worthy)

May: 2018 (Perfect spring/early summer month with cool minima to boot)

June: 2017 (actually preferred the feel of last years)

July: 2013 (Lovely month and far less oppressive than last month)

August: 2010 (Lovely and Autumnal)

September: 2012/2017 (Not a month i usually care for but i prefer cool and wet to humid which September warmth usually brings)

October: 2016 (cool, quite sunny and the most spectacular leaf falls i have ever seen)

November: 2016 (although 2010 brought the snow, the frost and sun of 2016 tipped it for me)

December: 2010 (second only to Jan 10)


Worth saying that if the cut-off was 2000 then April 07, June 06, Sep 07 and Nov 05 would have made the list).

I'd also actually like to add December 2017 to the list as the second best December of this decade so far after 2010. Although we obviously didn't get as many snowfalls, or perhaps even quite as deep, plus no white Christmas like 2010, the snow we got in early/mid December was fantastic. Also although we only got sleet here on Boxing Day unfortunately, a couple of days later when visiting a friend on the other side of Birmingham, I was amazed to see what was sleet here had left a covering of snow round his way. So I didn't have to go very far to see even more snowy landscapes that month.

June 2017 (A very hot month, remember a lot of hot days in the middle of the month, and remember seeing a lot of days in the 30s) Generally sunny too.

November 2017 (Remember seeing early snowfall on the 30th, probably the earliest snowfall in a number of years, maybe since October 2012)

December 2017 (Not so much memorable for overall cold weather, but memorable for some heavy bouts of snowfall here and there compared to previous years, not extreme though)

February 2018 (Remember the cold snap right at the end, probably the most memorable part of the winter of 2017/18)

March 2018 (Quite cold, remember the record breaking at the start of the month, and the extreme 'feels-like temperatures around -7 - 11 Celsius)

May 2018 (Very, very sunny over 250 hours, dry too, with rain at the end of the month, missed the thunderstorms though)

June 2018 (Hot, and dry, not as hot as 2017 though)

July 2018 (Hot hot hot, sometimes unbearably so. At one point I was expecting it to break records as the hottest july on record, it looked likely for a while, remember some heavy storms too towards the end of the month, breaking the long dry spell)
