Goff Heating Oil Weather Station Statistics March 2018

The month that England was hit by the Beast from the East will make March 2018 go down in history. 

It was a cold, wet and generally cloudy month with significant drifting snowfall on the 1st,2nd and 3rd.  The temperature remained below 0°C for the first 2 days of month meaning that transport was disrupted firstly by drifting snow and later by flooding caused by the thaw.

OFTEC suggested that the impact of the extreme cold weather on the country’s energy supply should raise important questions for politicians as they consider the pathways towards future decarbonised energy. To find out more click here.
