Enormous waves batter Seaham and Sunderland – 13th January 2017

Fantastic footage from the storm surge that hit the East Coast on 13th January 2017. The waves almost completely engulfed the harbour wall. Video by Jack Turton.


Here’s more footage from Seaburn near Sunderland. The sea actually looks like it’s boiling. This footage from Mrs Doyle goes fishing.

2016 Yearly Summary

2016 was the 17th warmest year (9.4°C) at Durham since 1850, 0.1°C warmer than last year. Of the 16 warmer years, nine have been since 2000; in a stationary series, only two would be expected. Only two months fell below the 1961 – 1990 average temperature: April and November. Whilst the decadal running mean for annual temperature has fallen slightly from a peak in 2002 (9.7°C), it remains higher than at any stage before 1998. As a result the number of ground frosts was well below average, the 3rd equal lowest total since 1931 (beaten only in 2000 and 2014). The annual rainfall total (698.9mm) was 49.9mm above average but this is not an exceptional total, ranking 58th highest in 168 years. It was a dull year (1160.2 hours), only 89% of the normal amount of sunshine, the 10th least sunny year since 1882.
