Overall, 2002 was a very warm year in Durham, the 2nd warmest on record (9.80°C) since 1850 and beaten only by 1949 (9.83°C). Only October fell below the long-term monthly mean. As noted above, in June and September, the 12-month running mean exceeded 10°C for the first time in Durham’s history. Of the 14 highest annual means, 8 have occurred since 1990. 2002 was also a wet year (734.2mm), well above the long-term mean (649mm). However, unlike temperature, the annual rainfall total was not record-breaking, ranking only 112nd highest in 151 years.
