11th mildest start to a year since 1772

Now that we’re 136 days into the year 2017, I thought that it was about time I looked to see just how this year was shaping up as regards temperatures in Central England. And as you can see from the table (fig 1), this year is already exceptionally mild, with a mean CET so far this year of 7.47°C which is +1.54°C above the 1961-1990 long-term average. This makes it currently the eleventh mildest start to a year since 1772, but as you can see many of the mildest years in the top 12 have also occurred in recent years.


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.
