November ended on a cold note, and just managed to cancel out the mid-month mildness, so that the mean temperature for the month of 6.81°C was 0.33°C below the 1981-2010 long-term average (fig 1). The mean anomaly by day of +0.07°C were much higher than those of -0.72°C by night.

Meteorological Autumn 2017, ended up being the joint 23rd mildest since 1659 in Central England, thanks to a remarkable warm spell that began on the 23rd of September, and more or less continued unbroken to the 29th of October (fig 2). The mean temperature for the whole Autumn was 10.9°C which was 0.27°C above the 1981-2010 long-term average. A couple of new highest maximum record temperatures were broken in mid-October (14th & 16th), although the warm day on the 22nd of November just failed to beat the old record.

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.
