Spring can start on either March 1st for meteorologists or March 21st for the more traditional gardeners and farmers.
For astronomers, it begins with the vernal equinox (from the Latin meaning ‘equal light’) on March 20th, during which there are equal hours of light and darkness.
Oddly statiscts show it is more likely to snow around Easter than Christmas – snow/sleet falls on average of 3.9 days in December but 4.2 days in March. Easter, however, can sometimes fall in April, which sees an average of just 2.3 days of snow
The warmest spring ever recorded in the UK was in 2011, when the mercury hit an average of 9.2°C a day.
1962 saw the coldest UK spring since records began, with daytime temperatures struggling to hit an average maximum of a miserable 5.8°C
