IT was a wet and windy December with a total of 104mm (four inches) of rain. This was well above the average but not as high as in December 2012 when 123mm (five inches) fell.
Temperatures were around average, ranging from -5C to 12C, although the nights were slightly colder than normal and the days slightly warmer. There were 14 frosts.
As always, my thanks to Denis Gilbert, from Shiplake, for the statistics.
