  1. Anyone know about a map with the strongest gusts reached in the UK during that storm??? Here are some of the strongest gusts observed over western France in the night of the 15th to the 16th of october 1987: FINISTERE [western brittany]: 216km/h pointe du Raz [average windvspeed: 172.8 but anemometer broke because of the strong winds right after midnight] 198km/h pointe de Penmarch [average wind speed 176.4km/h] 187km/h Quimper [144kmh average wind speed]. 187km/h a Camaret sur mer 176km/h a Ouessant [115km/h] 173km/h a l'Ile de Batz [162km/h!]. 169km/h a Brignogan [122km/h]. 162km/h a Lanveo
  2. It will also be remembered in France and Europe for its notable cold: http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/archives/archives.php?day=3&month=5&year=1991&hour=0&map=0&mode=0 http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/archives/archives.php?day=4&month=5&year=1991&hour=0&map=0&mode=0 http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/archives/archives.php?day=17&month=5&year=1991&hour=0&map=0&mode=0 http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/archives/archives.php?day=24&month=5&year=1991&hour=0&map=0&mode=0 The following month had one of the most severe late spri
  3. OK, managed to read this files from the knmi website: very interesting data. Has anyone got an idea of what units the values in the 2nd table on the german study are in? I'm having trouble with this, and have been stuck on it for the past year, without finding any logical explanation to why the values shown in this table aren't the same as those shown in the tables at the end of the study. Also it should be noted that at the end of the study there are several tables showing daily minima for some European weather observatories at the time: Upminster, Berlin, Halle, Kiel, Danzig, Copenhagen and
  4. Thank you very much sebastian, undoubtably some very important information in these files. However, I am able to download the files but not to open them on my computer "there is no default application specified to open the document"]. Does anyone know how I could overcome this problem? Thank you.
  5. Also, I was wondering if anyone had ever seen this German study on the severe winter 1709: http://www.met.fu-berlin.de/~manfred/Winter1709.pdf Any one fluent in German? I still haven't managed to understand what the second table shows: absolute minimum temperature, average? And what unit are these figures in? Thank you.
  6. Thank you very much for those links, some interesting details! Among all the episodes I have studied, here are some of them: Summer 1783, extremely war especially in Scandinavia: Second half of june averaged 19.0 degrees in Stockholm [+3.6/average], July Averaged 21.2 degrees [+3.8] with the 11 last days being at 22.9 [+5.0], September averaged 14.6 [+2.8] and October 10.0 [+3.6]! October 1784, cold everywhere in Europe: a lot of frost and even snow [uK, Switzerland, France and Belgium], max temp of 2.7 in Paris at month's end. Monthly average of 5.8 in Berlin, 6.4 in Vienna, 7.4 in Paris. Sum
  7. when the terms incredible appear, it means that there either was: -record breaking temperatures in at least one place in Europe. -Extreme temperatures over widespread areas on the continent. -Extreme temperatures over much of Europe. For example, the summer of 1826 and even more 1846 were incredibly hot over much of Europe, winter 1834 ranks amongst the top 5 warmest in western europe in the past 350 years, etc...
  8. Hello, I'm currently working on a summary of European climate from the end of the 18th century to the end of the 19th century. I am therefore looking for any information concerning weather extremes all over Europe from 1770 to 1890. My work concerns especially warm and cold events [mild/cold winters, springs, summers and falls]. In order to be able to describe these events with as much precision as possible, its of course preferable to have contemporary temperature data from these events, rather than the subjective points of view of observers. I already have a lot of daily data from quite a
  9. Hi, Do you know where I can find a list of british weather stations and extreme temperatures in these weather stations? Thank you.
  10. That month was bitterly cold in the whle of Europe, with a cold spell around the 10th of april which broke many monthly records over France: Here is the situation on the 4th of april, already very cold: http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/archives/archives.php?day=4&month=4&year=1986&hour=0&map=0 Freezing north easterly for several days: 6th of april: http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/archives/archives.php?day=6&month=4&year=1986&hour=0&map=0 on the 9th, very cold air massed over Spitzberg in the close arctic sea: http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/archives/archives.php
  11. Thanks a lot for the information. I will see if I can find any thing else on the internet.
  12. As I was reading through summary of European climate from the 1300s, I read about an incredible cold wave that affected much of Europe during the monthe of April 1595. Indeed after a very severe winter, it is said that the temperatures reached such low levels that people died from the cold in France around the 12th of the month, and birds died in their millions. Has anyone heard of this event affecting the UK??
  13. Temperatures reached record lows accross much of Europe that year in february with -26.0 in Berlin, -27 in Prag, -31.0 in clermont Ferrand in France, and un to -30 degrees in centrale Europe. even in western France, temperatures dipped to -19.0 degrees in Rennes. The monthly average reached -10 degres to -15 degres over much of central and eastern Europe. The frost was still exeptionally intense during the beginning of march 1929, with temperatures fallin under -10 degres celsius in Eastern France, and -20 in Eastern Europe as close as Eastern Germany. This was on of the coldest winters of the
  14. Thank you, I will have a look more closely then. Oh and if anyone here is interested, I have found data for Helsinki since 1850 and for Iena since 1825.
  15. So no one has any info on where to find any data for the events??? It would be very interesting to be able to get this data and compare it with recent cold winters, and just to remind ourselves of how cold the weather can get over our continent...
