Summer 2017 – a little warmer than average in Central England

Figure 1

If you use the 1981-2010 long-term averages, Summer 2017 in Central England was a little above average, a mean temperature of 16.14°C gave it an anomaly of +0.28°C, making it the joint 41st warmest summer since 1659 for what it’s worth (fig 1). As far as I can see, looking at the individual months that make up the ‘meteorological’ summer of 2017, June was 20th warmest, July the 54th warmest and August the 87th warmest since 1659, which more or less tells you how the summer went temperature wise.

Two new highest maximums set on the 19th and 21st of June, and a new lowest maximum on the 28th of June were set during the summer (fig 2).


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.
