Temperature means are just in for March 2013, and it shows as being the coldest March since 1883 (equal with March 1892) in the Central England Temperature record (2.7 deg). Quite something. It narrowly beat March 1962.

Some records for March 2013

1. The coldest March with 1892 since 1883
2. The coldest March CET mean maximum on record. (Since 1878)
3. The coldest CET mean maximum for a spring month on record.
4. The joint 5th coldest CET mean minimum for March on record.
5. The 6th coldest CET month in the last 25 years
6. The 5th coldest CET mean minimum in the last 25 years.
7. The coldest second half to March with 1883 since 1853
8. The first time a March has been colder than a colder than average January and February  in the same year since 1786
9. The first time a below average March has return a CET colder than the previous winter that was also below average since 1962

Can well believe it. neither the wife or me can handle the cold , so have been in hibernation for weeks. The family take it in turns to do the shopping. As long as we have plenty to read, plenty jigsaws, and the tele working, we can manage, but both of us are going a bit stir crazy now.

March. 2013 Very cold; on the CET series, at 2.7C the coldest since 1883. (Although depending which measures you take exactly for the CET series, just since 1962 or 1892.) It was the first time March was the coldest month of the "winter" (defined meteorologically as December, January, and February) since 1937. There were several periods of heavy snowfall and heavy showers, with for example heavy snow on the 11th and 12th disrupting the south coast and even the Channel Islands. The month was let down by a relatively mild beginning; it reached 17.5C at Trawsgoed (Ceredigon) and 17.1C at Swanscombe (Kent) on the 5th. Amazingly there were 9 days where the temperature failed to climb above freezing at some official site in the UK. The coldest day was the 24th, where the maximum was -3.3C at Lake Vyrnwy (Montgomeryshire). The coldest night was the 11th, with -12.9C at Kinbrace and Aboyne. Rainfall (mostly as snow!) totalled 73.9 mm, which is very close to the long-term average. Snow fell on up to 20 days in parts of the Midlands, north, and Scotland. Given it was an extremely easterly month, pulling in air from the cold continent, it was unsurprisingly a very dull month, averaging just 87 hours; in parts of the east it was the dullest March since 1984. In NW Scotland however it was glorious!
