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.

    FWIW the long term summer average since 1659 was 15.35 °C and the trend since 1659 was +0.13 °C per century. The long term summer average since 1772 was 15.31 °C and the trend since 1772 was +0.10 °C per century. Nothing to worry about there, at least for us.
