    Where are the openers? Why has no one grabbed the position? Look at the historical openers chain going back to the 1960s Cook ----Strauss-----Trescothick-------Atherton--------Gooch-------Boycott------Edrich That chain will be broken if Cook decides to retire. They can't even drop Cook because they can't even find one opener to fill the gap let alone two!

    August 2008: horrific

    Coming up to 10 years since this absolute awful summer month. The worst feature of this month was the lack of sunshine, for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, as a whole, it was duller than February of the same year. February 2018 was exceptionally sunny granted but August was so dull it was the 9th sunniest month of the year! February, March, April, September and October were all sunnier than August 2008. For northern Scotland, it wasn't as bad as the rest of the country, sunshine wise. Some of the sunshine figures are shocking for a summer month Hampstead: 97hrs Wittering: 116hrs Ross-on-Wye: 126hrs St Mawgan: 118hrs Edgbaston: 101hrs Valley: 86hrs Woodford: 79hrs Boulmer: 72hrs Eskdalemuir: 41hrs Aldergrove: 61hrs For parts of Scotland Northern Ireland, to add to the extreme dullness, it was also exceptionally wet. The cloud amounts meant that maxima were suppressed but minima held up. The highest maximum recorded in the UK for the month was 27.5C on the 6th at Faversham For me, it was a month to forget!

    Keaton Jennings has nothing done since his return. Its 6 years since Strauss retired and no one has cemented their position as England opener.
  5. I forgot to mention this statistical nerdy point.. The last time a July returned a CET of XX.4? 1975

    Stokes has done nothing so far in this Test. Maybe he should have taken time out after the court trial and come back for the 4th Test, given that England were already 2-0 up.

    They haven't been that many cold winters anyway in that period. Warmth has dominated in that period, so not really good period to draw any analogues from and in any case, the coolest September of recent times, 2015 was followed by a very mild winter.

    Did you know.

    Does Summer Sun never have an early night? They have posted the daily observation thread, everyday at midnight, since about mid October last year, Even New Year's Day!

    They can be misleading if you are using them in terms of how good a summer is but not in absolute terms. They are not been used to measure how good a summer is, it is just a simple case that if say it is 45mm on 30th August then we get a 31st August ex Charley event, and it increases to 88mm for the summer, it isn't going to be the driest summer on record, as simple that.

  12. Can only go from second half of 1984 onwards but I go for 1985 Winter, mid March snowfalls, late April snowfalls, mid May night thunderstorm, late May-early June sunshine, late July thunderstorms, September and October weren't too bad, cold November with the snow near the end, post Christmas cold spell. Least favourite? 1988

    Northwest England regional thread 3 /3 onwards

    Warm in that sun. Manchester Airport currently 24C Looks like the south of the region is going to miss the worst of the rain from Ernesto.

    Near the North Pole it might be, but it's night during the small hours around here. It's near 6am that the sunrises now.

    Yes, I have noticed that. Twaddle posted as fact. And when corrected, they keep repeating the same twaddle. So either they are trolling or they are two dimensional beings trapped in a three dimensional universe.
  20. However you quoted July 2005 as an example and Julys 2001 and 2010 had higher CETs and were not followed by warm Septembers,

    Worst summer of the 1980s?

    1981 is an interesting one. CET, it was on the coolish side but it was dry for England and Wales. It's the 19th driest summer on record. Drier than 1947, 1959, 1989, 2003, 2006

    Meteorological summer is June, July, August Astronomical summer is summer solstice to autumn equinox, so even that definition doesn't consider the whole of September as a summer month.
