Warmest Central England Temperature for the 8th of May

Provisionally yesterday – Sunday the 8th of May 2016 – was the warmest 8th of May in Central England since at least 1878. The maximum temperature anomaly was +10°C warmer than the 1961-1990 long-term average for that day and was a full 2°C warmer than the previous warmest that occurred in 2008. The mean temperature was the highest since at least 1772 at 18.0°C and exceeded the previous highest mean of 1867 by 1.1°C. Quite an exceptionally warm day for early May.

About xmetman

I am an exmetman who is passionate about all things to do with weather and climate. I have no axe to grind, and am continually upsetting people on both sides of the global warming debate with the articles that I publish, hell, I'm even banned from commenting on the Met Office's own blog! What I do fight for is the freeing up of climate, observational and forecast data collected and created on our behalf by the Meteorological Office.
