Coldest UK Easter Recorded

According to a tweet from Weatherquest it is officially the coldest Easter ever recorded as the temperature in Braemar fell to -13C last night. Temperature map can be found at:

First thing this morning my local temperature fell to -3.5C though once the Sun came out it soon rose above freezing.

My recordings for March 2011 - 2013 show:

 Hedgehog(s) were in and out of the hedgehog house last night. Following a tip form Jan I changed the dog food to a chicken flavour variety and it was all gone by this morning. No sighting of a cat.


  1. I thought it was a bit chilly. I'm glad your records confirm it. I was starting to think I was getting nesh.

  2. It was a bitterly cold night here John, the local weather map said minus 5 but I think it was probably even more than that! We still have drifted snow in the hedgerows too.

    So pleased the tip worked :-)

  3. yay! glad they ate the 'new' dog food!

  4. Very telling charts John.
    It doesn't look much better for at least a week.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
