December was wet and a little warmer than normal (mostly because of the lows). It seemed pretty cloudy.

Overall the year was about 1F warmer than normal. More rainfall than usual. Below normal rainfall from about mid-spring thru summer (except for July) and heavy rainfall in the cooler months give it maybe a bit of a mediterranean look.

2018 had the warmest May on record, the 6th warmest February, 5th coolest April, and 5th wettest February on record.



Other December stats:

Coolest max: 44F
Warmest min: 57F

Days with lows below freezing: 2

Highest dewpoint: 69F
Lowest dewpoint: 27F
Average dewpoint: 45F

Thunder days: 2

That includes all days with any dew or any kind of moisture on the sensor. More days than would be recorded if you only counted precipitation.

I guess I don't need to do a weather box for Toronto, London had a very similar year.

Toronto and London are very close to each other but you'd think there would be a bigger difference

April was the worst ever with a well below normal 8C average high...
that’s why it was surprising that may was nice summer-like.

We didn’t have an ultra warm/mild 2018 like parts of europe had ..that’s for sure,
with horrible months...april and november ...but may, june, july, august, september
made up for it.
Yeah I'd rank 2018 the 3rd best in recent years, behind 2011 and 2005. There were years that had better winters or summers but the 3 years I mentioned were better as a whole.

Norrköping (my nearest full weather station covering all elements, 60 km away, in a relatively similar geographical spot, albeit slightly higher diurnals):



Quite a mild year, February and March the main exception. Stunningly warm summer, very sunny, dry and a May that will be completely unforgetable in addition to the warm July. That October new record temp was not replicated in Nyköping, but the general average trend was extremely similar, although Nyköping being closer to the open sea primarily made a difference in making the summer nights warmer. I'd say the harbour area here probably was close to 16°C July average lows, which then fell rapidly moving inland.

2018 was an odd year in terms of weather.

Hottest max: 97 F / 36 C, July 4
Coldest min: 2 F / -16 C, January 2

Coldest max: 19 F / -7 C, January 16
Hottest min: 77 F / 25 C, June 19

Precip: 55.11"
Wettest day: 1.81", February 24

Most of January was quite cold, with a few mild days toward the end of the month, and the first half of February was quite wintry as well. Then, right around Valentine's Day, it suddenly warmed up and the second half of February had weather conditions similar to an average April. March had similar averages to February, but was a typical colder than average March, with a mix of cold days and mild days, the cold days being more concentrated near the beginning of the month, but there was no dramatic temperature jump. April was the same, a typical colder than average April.

Summer this year started abruptly. In April, there were only 2 days that got to 80 F / 27 C, and those were both in the first half of the month. In May, there were only 2 days that didn't hit that 80 mark, and they were not May 1 and 2. It's as if a switch was flipped from early-mid spring to summer. We skipped straight from early April weather to June weather. Fall was similarly abrupt; September was just as hot as the rest of the summer, save for a couple of cooler spells that lasted only a few days each; October started off with summer like conditions before a switch was flipped again, and we went from August weather to early November weather. Summer was long, about May 1 to October 10, with a sudden start and stop.

The remainder of October was relatively mild but a little colder than average, and November was quite dreary and significantly colder than average, with a total lack of 70+ F / 21+ C days. December ended up nearly a carbon copy of November.
