    2002 worst year for weather?

    It was an awful year. Cloudy and mild winter to start the year, mild and sunny end of March and a warm sunny April. But, the summer was very dull with only a handful of hot days. The autumn was mild and damp, and the December Christmas period was also mild. The worst kind of weather.
  2. I remember September 1987 being quite warm for at least the first half, after the poor summer. Although temps during the second part of August were hot at times in the London area, with thunderstorms.
  3. A cold wave( which will affect many parts of Europe, including even Spain and Portugal) between mid November and mid February, after that the second half of Feb 2019 will be mild and wet, and March 2019 will be mild and springlike for the first half, before turning cold and cloudy in the second half.

    Forgettable years, weatherwise.

    At secondary school. I remember the very mild Christmas, and for some reason it stands out more than 2015. I don’t know why, but I found 2015 fairly forgettable in weather terms and boring.
  5. From a modern day standpoint, I would say that 1982 seems to be a period when climate change started getting noticed by the general public, especially in North America. We

    I remember December 1988 being warmer than 2015.
  7. 2015 never matched the greatness of 2018 for heat or sunshine. The maximum in July 2015 is forgotten, because such a poor and dreary summer followed it. A long spell of dry and sunny warm weather will always be remembered over a two to three day record breaking temp.

    A very mild December like that doesn’t happen very often. For some reason, I don’t remember it being mild all the time, maybe because it was sandwiched between a cooler November, and the colder spells of January to March of 2016. A mild winter yes, but I do recall still getting some chilly days.

    February of 2015 and March were chilly that year. The December was mild though. The main thing about that year was the poor summer, and the warm sunny September.

    No worries mate. Apologies everyone

    Some of the oldsters are a patronising lot, just because we weren’t around for the great ice age of 1963.

    And no I don’t mean, all those years had better Augusts compared to 1976, but better than the 2018 one. Hopefully I’ve made that clear enough.

    1983, 84, 89 and 90 along with 95 had better Augusts, but most people seem to focus on 1976, especially people who I work with. Most people have short memories lol.

    You keep asking me this lol. The location is West London. Temps were still quite high, I don’t think record breaking temps need to be achieved, as most people will take more notice of longer periods of 27-32c days, as opposed to one week of 32-34c weather, before a cooler period of weather. It may not have been the hottest, but it was one of the longer spells of hot weather for a long time. As long as the sun is out, that’s the most important thing.

    I would rather that, than the cloudy and cool affairs of the previous few years. I will admit though, a few days in July were too hot, when we reached 34-35c, and those 20c nights seemed unbearable. The cool crisp mornings now though, makes it seem already a long time ago lol. A great summer, and although August was disappointing, it was a better start for many years, plus the May to July period more than made up for it.
