Coldest start to an August in 30 years

Figure 1

I notice that the latest provisional mean maximum daily temperature for the first eight days of August in Central England of 18.89°C (-1.38°C) are the lowest for that period since 1987 (fig 2). The 10 year average mean temperature for this period, has been on a downturn since 2000, and even the linear trend shows only limited warming since 1772 (fig 1).

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.
