July 2015: the wildest summer swinger on record?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I don't usually come on here in summer but July 2015 is such a month of extremes that I thought I'd pop a post about it.

 

With very cold, potentially record breaking, night-time minima coming up on 29th and 30th and the record maxima on 01st July of 36.7C this will rank as one of the wildest swinging summer months on record. The overall Hadobs CET mean was 16.4C to the 27th so is likely to land around average, but this belies a month of the greatest summer swing I can recall.

 

Any comments about this or other examples of extreme summer months very welcome!

Thanks for that Weather-history. Gosh those are astonishing temperature variations in the space of 24 hours.
