2011 was the third warmest year on record

Tue, 03 Jan 2012

2011 was the third warmest year on record.

That's according to the annual summary released by the Isle of Man Met Office.

Although the mean temperature of 10.76 Celsius was quite high last year, it wasn't down to hot weather during the summer months, as these were all cooler than normal.

The hottest day was 3rd June when the mercury reached 22.7c.

The wettest day of the year was also in June, when more than 48mm of rain fell at the Met Office.

It was also the first year since 1992 that not a single flake of snow fell at Ronaldsway.
