Days’ chilly start

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - By Libby Price

If you sus­pect it’s been a much colder win­ter than usual, your sus­pi­cions have now been con­firmed.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy has con­tin­ual record­ings at Man­ga­lore air­field which go back to 1989, and the his­tor­i­cal data re­veals Sey­mour had its cold­est morn­ing on record on July 2 this year with a freez­ing -4.9°C, fol­lowed by a -4.3°C start on July 16.

The year we suf­fered through the most days with frosts was 2006, with 37 days of sub-zero tem­per­a­tures, the cold­est be­ing -4.7°C.

Sey­mour en­dured an­other par­tic­u­larly frosty win­ter in 2012, with 25 days of sub-zero tem­per­a­tures.

And there may be more frosts to come, with frozen morn­ings be­ing recorded in Septem­ber, when there were eight frosts in 1995, and even Oc­to­ber, when two spring frosts were recorded in 2013.
