The highest air temperature measured during the month was 12.4C on the 19th, and the lowest was -4.5C on the 28th, the lowest minimum since December 2010. I did break one record as the lowest daily (9am-9am) maximum temperature was 0.1C on the 28th, this is the lowest since my records began in May 2008 (the previous record was 0.6C recorded on 8th Jan 2010 and 20th Jan 2013). The lowest grass minimum temperature was -6.7C recorded on the 28th. There were 19 ground frosts recorded during the month along with 4 air frosts, bringing the tally (Nov-Feb) to 60 and 6 respectively with more expected in March with the cold weather set to continue.

February was drier than average with just 41.8mm recorded in my accurate manual gauge (58% of the average). My (less accurate) automatic Davis gauge recorded 49mm. The wettest day was the 12th when 16.2mm was recorded in my manual gauge. Rain was recorded on 12 days during the month with >5mm on 4 days.

The tables above show weather conditions recorded by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 automatic weather station sited in Teignmouth, South Devon. They are usually updated every 10 minutes. All times are Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), so add one hour for British Summer Time (BST).

* Air temperature is measured 1.9m above ground level and the anemometer is just 2.2m above ground level in a NNW/SSE oriented valley. The wind direction is therefore heavily biased towards either the up or down valley direction and the anemometer is very sheltered from the prevailing westerly flow by higher ground directly upstream. The thermistor that measures grass tip temperature only has a resolution of 1 degree Fahrenheit and this has been automatically converted into Celcius to the nearest 0.1 degrees. A grass temperature of < 0°C indicates the occurrence of a ground frost (air temperature < 0°C indicates an air frost). The leaf wetness sensor monitors the level of surface moisture on foliage and hence the occurrence of dew, fog, drizzle, rain etc. Soil moisture is measured in centibars (cb) [0-10cb = saturated soil, 10-30cb = ground adequately wet, 30-100cb = ground needs irrigating to maintain maximum production, 100-200 cb = ground dry. ]. The strength of the sun's ultraviolet radiation is expressed as a UV index and was developed by the World Health Organization. As a guide 0-2 = low, 3-5 = medium, 6-7 = high, 8-10 = very high, 11+ = extreme. You can safely stay outside if UV is low, and it is recommended that you wear sunscreen if levels are moderate or higher, and seek shade if levels are high or above. In Teignmouth UV levels reach 7 in mid-summer and may reach 8 on exceptional days.
