Would rank 10th.

CET: 6.17C.

Sandwiched between 1795/96 (6.20C) and 1934/35 (6.13C).

Winter 1795/96 is an interesting one because 1794/95 ranks fifth-coldest and contained the coldest month on the record. Some swing from one year to the next.

Thanks for the stats.

A warming trend is not happening everywhere then. This needs to taken into account.

Interestingly here only one season (summer 2018) out of the last nine have been warmer than average..there certainly have been some interesting weather patterns over North America in recent years that have produced both record warm and record cold.

Yes, the arctic has  been very cold this year, with alaska the coldest in 7 years I believe? Northern India has had some extreme cold too, and intererestingly, parts of West Africa have been down to single figures at night I've found. 

However, Russia has been significantly warmer than average so arctic warming is obviously happening in some of the arctic but not all of it.

I've heard the complete opposite and that spring in Europe will be warmer than average. Though I have checked my forecast for where I am in the southeast and it does seem to be getting colder and some snow is forecast  for the first time this year .

I’m looking mainly at the U.K. rather than Europe though I think a Euro slug HP won’t be the main feature.  I think an easterly or NE’ly component will be present, but not a BFTE.  Higher pressure likely to want to show its hand to north of U.K. be it N, NW, NE at times.

Sunny Sheffield at 5.8C still +1.5C above normal. Rainfall up to 159.8mm 265.9% of the monthly average.

The record for us is 202.5mm so another 42.8mm needed to beat that. Unlikely but who knows with six days left. It's now our second wettest on record.

Final week of Feb wi be much colder than it has with snowfall in places which continues into the first few days of march. The BBC has changed their outlook for march from being mild to being chilly and wintry at times. I can imagine that march may actually be colder than February.

6.6c to the 22nd

3.0c above the 61 to 90 average
2.3c above the 81 to 10 average

Should see that drop back during the final days of the month.  February will still be significantly milder than average, though.

Last nights heavy rainfall took a huge chunk of years out I see.

1990 was the wettest in recent years interesting,I didn`t measure rainfall that year,2014 was the wettest I`ve recorded.

Next few day,more rain monday shouldn`t be quite so much,then a cold snap drier,thursday`s low a question mark could be snow.

Sunny Sheffield still at 5.8C +1.5C above normal. A rise for today no doubt coming. Rainfall 166.1mm 276.4% of the monthly average. We are going to get close to the record by the looks of things but won't beat it.

I got the second half of this month wrong - I went milder and wetter than average on the basis that the first half would be mild and zonal, which would ease to something quieter and drier throug the second half of the month. If anything it has been worse! Chance of the wettest February on record?

So into the top ten, can we squeeze into the top five I wonder? 

Lots of rain around yesterday, heavy showers today, and four more days of the month to go.
