Extreme mid-September heat in Europe

Recommended Posts

 

An exceptional summer of record-breaking heat waves across Europe is hanging on with remarkable vigor as the fall equinox approaches. On Thursday, September 17, dozens of locations in at least six countries set all-time high temperature records for any date in September, according to international weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera. This is truly an amazing accomplishment for so late in a transition month like September when average temperatures are dropping throughout the month. Among the locations that set all-time September highs on Thursday were these four stations in southeast Germany, all of which broke monthly records that had just been set on September 1 of this year (thanks to Michael Theusner, Klimahaus, for these statistics).

No doubt come winter it will become extreme cold and snow while once again we stand on the other side of road looking on in our own rainy mediocrity.

On things for sure, they've certainly had a long hot summer across the mainland.

Not as hot/warm as last September here in France but still nice to be able to go into the garden in a t-shirt at 1900 and pick apples for your dessert! And it hasn't been a long hot summer here either. July broke records for heat here in my area (Limousin) and there was a drought, but August made up with big rainfall totals which were almost all t-storm related.
