To gauge how unusually cold the last 31 days had been, if we start from the date of when the Arctic blast struck on the 5th of April   5th April -5th May 2021: ~6.4C 5th April-5th May 1

The CET minimum for April-May was about 3.4C, coldest CET minimum since at least 1878 The CET minimum for 3rd April-2nd May was a remarkable 0.7C  (April was 1.0C) which was a record  

Agreed with both previous posters, high pressure builds in a fairly bad place for warming to occur, at least it may stop raining. EWP to 80 mm currently (74 mm to 16th and about 6 mm on map for 17th),

    I think May will fail to even hit a double figure CET. Frequent incursions of Arctic air but interspersed at times with vicious Lows and flooding(!) will be an isdue in places by end of month. Feeling strangely autumnal at times. CET 9.9.C and a deluge of 168mm.

    10.8 and 127.2 mm rain, very wet at times, some relief from the cool regime after mid-month otherwise I agree it could end up never reaching 10 (for the first time since 1996 I think). But I imagine there will be one rather warm spell to bring up the average around the fourth week.

    Yes, it just means you can't possibly win the annual or the spring contest as you can't be ranked but you can still win individual contests and seasonal ones in Summer and Autumn.
