  1. We've had 45 hours so far this June, just 49% of the 1981-2010 average to this point in the month. Our dullest five Junes since 1980 are: 1987: 111hrs 2012: 115hrs 1990: 122hrs 1982: 133hrs 2016: 135hrs Since 2000, only 2002, 2007, 2012, 2014 and 2016 have had sunshine hours below the current 1981-2010 average (184hrs), the other 14 Junes have been above this. Its also worth noting that should this June finish with a total below average, it will be the first duller than average month since April 2018 - a run of 13 months.
  2. Yes, June 2007 was grim. 206.9mm of rain that month which all fell between the 12th and 30th. It is the wettest month on record here and locally back to 1847.
  3. Yes, that day is comfortably the holder of the lowest July maximum temp on record here at 12.8C. The rainfall quantities here in June haven't been too bad so far at 43.8mm. June and July 2018 managed just 45.2mm combined however, so its definitely different this year!
  4. As you may or may not appreciate, its incredibly difficult to differentiate between genuine and political discussion in here. Next time we'll just remove the lot, how's that?
  5. There's a reason we don't have any political discussion on here anymore. If people could continue without bringing all that stuff up in this thread then it will be able to continue. Otherwise its getting locked. Your choice. Cheers
  6. It won't because if anyone keeps doing this they'll quickly find themselves not being able to post. That goes for this thread too. Enough arguing about preferences and weather 'guilt-tripping'. It stops now.
  7. Confirmed as 11.1C: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/hadobs/hadcet/cetml1659on.dat 0.6C below the 1981-2010 average 0.1C below the 1961-1990 average Spring was 9.33C, so 35th warmest in the CET series.
  8. Why on Earth are you using the 1981-2010 averages for 1991 then? Its standard to use the most recent 30 year average, so for 1991 that is 1961-1990.
  9. Slightly warmer and wetter than average: 15.1C and 80mm
  10. I imagine it'll be an east-west split month. We're still 1.2C below the 1981-2010 average here.
  11. After a cool start it was a clear and sunny day throughout with small amounts of cirrus from late-afternoon on. Without an onshore breeze, it was the warmest day of the month so far. The air pressure was also notably high for May, reaching 1040.2hPa this morning - the highest I've ever recorded in May. Max Temp: 19.3C Min Temp: 4.9C Mean Wind: 10mph S Max Gust: 17mph Sunshine: 15.3hrs Rainfall: None Currently mostly clear with a temp of 12.3C.
  12. After a cold and foggy start with a light ground frost it was a clear and sunny day throughout apart from some fair weather cloud around midday. Cooler than inland due to the easterly breeze but pleasant nonetheless. Max Temp: 14.3C Min Temp: 1.9C Mean Wind: 14mph E Max Gust: 19mph Sunshine: 13.1hrs Rainfall: None Currently mostly clear with a temp of 7.7C.
  13. Every now and again you get a night like that. Oddly, the most notable one I can remember was 13th October last year where it didn't drop below 18.8C all night - not in summer, but it was so odd to be so warm overnight so late in the year.
  14. Currently running at 7.1C (-3.1C) here to the 10th. A mean of 9.9C or less for the remainder of the month would see us record the coldest May on record. A long way to go, but something to keep an eye on.
  15. Early sunny spells gave way to overcast conditions with light rain at times after midday, before brightening up once again in the evening. Rather cold again during the day after an overnight ground frost. Max Temp: 10.5C Min Temp: 0.5C Mean Wind: 11mph E Max Gust: 15mph Sunshine: 3.7hrs Rainfall: Trace Currently mostly cloudy with a temp of 6.7C.
