The first quarter of 2009 has now past and we are now in mid-spring. Each month of the past quarter had above average rainfall and the plants on my terraza are the best they’ve looked for this time of year since I have been here—very vigorous.

Temperatures were slightly cooler than normal for January and close to normal for February and March. The past few weeks indicate that this summer may be warmer than last year.

The following table compares temperature and precipitation data in El Masnou for this year and the past five years (including this year.) Temperatures are in degrees Celsius (C) and precipitation in millimeters (mm). Each year and “Summary” row displays:

  1. average maximum temperature,
  2. average minimum temperature,
  3. average mean temperature,
  4. absolute maximum,
  5. absolute minimum temperatures
  6. average precipitation

for the given month. The “Extremes” row shows the highest and lowest temperatures recorded during the period 2004-2009.
