Frost and ice days in the CET series

TIME SERIES analysis of frost and ice data from the ENGLAND CET data set
No surprise the trend has been down . Some hope for an increase with a massive anomolous event in 2000. Maybe signs of a swing to more frosts and ice in coming years for ENGLAND?
“The noticeable thing from the bottom graph is the linear trend on the total number of frost days in a year has reduced from around 52 a year in 1878, to only 35 days in 2014.”

    Another very low number of air frosts this year in Central England [2015-16].

    So far, since the 1st of October 2015, there have been only 9 air frosts in the Daily Central England Temperature [CET] series. On average by this time of year there should have been 28 air frosts, so we are far below the long-term average. The 2015-16 season will not break the record of the super mild 2013-14 season though, because there were only 7 air frosts in that season. By this time [February 11] in 1888 (the record highest season), there had been 61 air frosts in comparison.”
