2017 now second warmest to date in Central England…

The cold few days at the end of June set 2017 back a little, but the warmth of the last week has now allowed it to move into second place in the warmest years to date, with a mean temperature of 9.81°C (1 January to 7 July) in the CET series. 2007 will continue to weaken in the coming weeks, so there’s every chance that it will get into first place, but it’s still being chased hard by 1846 and 2014. But 2014 is the year to beat though, because we already know that it’s the warmest year in the series that started in 1659, the two years are almost inseparable at the moment though, with just 0.03°C between them.



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.
