7th mildest March on record to date

With 28 days of the month now gone, March 2017 provisionally stands as the 7th warmest March in Central England back to 1772, with a mean temperature of 8.11°C which is +2.55°C above the 1961-1990 long-term average. Maximum anomalies are a little higher than minimum anomalies this month, indicating that the days have been a little milder than the nights. Mild has it’s been, there was little chance that it would catch the exceptionally mild March of 1957 though.
