The following charts (updated March 2017) show the last nine years' monthly and annual temperatures plotted (in red) against the (green, repeating) 2008 - 2016 9-year Acton Bridge averages, with our recorded deviation from average plotted in blue to the same scale. Notice the exceptionally cold December 2010 (-0.8°C) and the exceptionally mild December 2015 (+9.4°C, more than 10° warmer than 2010). The lower chart shows the annual averages and deviations (for example, 2014 was 0.8° milder than our 9-year average).

The Chart below (simplified in March 2017) shows two rainfall series - the purple is our eight-year 2009-2016 averages for the Acton Bridge 5" rain gauge ; the dark blue is the 2016 monthly rainfall. Although six of the months were much wetter than our average, the overall rainfall for 2016 was only 3% above the norm.

The next chart shows annual rainfall at Acton Bridge compared with our 8-year average of 865mm
