2017 in Central England – currently joint 4th warmest

2017, continues to move a little higher up the league table of warmest years to date (the 1st Jan to the 18th June), it’s now joint 4th and is within striking distance of both 1990 (0.02°C higher) and 2014 (0.15°C higher), and the way this current hot spell is going it could will go clear as the second warmest start to any year since 2007 before the week is out, in the daily mean temperature record that started in 1772. This is of course based on provisional values for this month from the Met Office.

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.
