CET – Autumn 2016

Autumn 2016 in Central England was slightly warmer than average with a mean temperature of 8.57°C (based on provisional figures), which was +0.42°C above the 1961-1990 long-term average. There were a couple of highlights during the Autumn 2016.

  • A cold spell during the first two weeks of November with a minimum anomaly of -7.2°C on the 8th.
  • A mild December from the 6th, and exceptionally so during the second week, with two new extreme records broken, marked on the above graph with a red star for a new highest maximum on the 9th, and a blue diamond for a new highest minimum on the 10th.

 Six air frost’s so far this Autumn, which may not sound a lot but it’s not far of the average, and certainly higher that in 2013/14.



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.
