Daily extremes in Central England Temperatures

Here is a table and chart that display the daily extremes in the Central England Temperature [CET] series from 1878. When I say daily extreme, what I mean is the difference between the highest and lowest temperatures that have occurred on that particular day since 1878. It was a little surprising when I added a best fit curve and noticed that it wasn’t as seasonal as I would have thought, with the highest extremes in the summer and the lowest in the winter. Instead the lowest extremes seem to occur in November with the highest extremes in May and June. It does of course depend on what kind of best fit curve you employ, the one I used in this graph were to the 5th polynomial according to my charting component, which produces a very smooth curve than a higher polynomial would do.

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.

    Massive scatter though, to be fair.
