In case we’re wondering why this post is coming out so far after the end of the month – I have new software for my PWS and so I’ve been working on a new style of graphs for us all. 🙂 enjoy:
The new year began fairly mild and humid with southerly winds dominating the pattern. However that was only the precursor to a serious storm that brought the month’s strongest winds for my particular location a gust to 42mph. Incidentally, the low pressure associated with these strong winds produced the month’s lowest pressure at about 1003mb (29.61inHg).
January’s rain came in bursts of heavy squally showers. Downpours frequently reached rainfall rates of over 4″/hour. The month ended at 3.62″ for me; 3.88″ for the Bermuda Weather Service – both significantly below average starting 2012 on the same dry note that ended 2011.
