area sees new December temperature record set
daffodils have burst into bloom in parts of the Burnham-On-Sea
area this week as the mild winter continues.
flowers are already in full colour in Berrow, as pictured here
over the weekend, due to the unseasonable conditions.
record December temperature of 15.1C was recorded in Brent Knoll
on Saturday. Then, just after midnight on Sunday, thanks to warm
air streaming up from the southwest, the thermometer reached another
new December high of 15.4C.
average overnight temperature Saturday into Sunday was 13.9C and
this month's average temperature in the Burnham area now stands
at 11.5C, which is warmer than November 2015, and approaching
Octobers average of 11.8C.
run-up to Christmas in the Burnham-On-Sea area is set to see stormy
conditions, with high winds and heavy rain sweeping in - and temperatures
remaining milder than normal.
