I believe its time for the June 2020 forecasts thread but I can't see it about so I'll start it again.

20.5C  :oldsad:  Last sub 12C June in 1972.  Last sub 13C and last sub 13.5C June in 1991.

200 mm from Atlantic garbage and monsoons.

I’ll go 15.0c and 40mm. Surely 20.5c cet can’t be possible along with 200mm from Atlantic rain Lol

Came close to opening two threads at the same moment here ... but I spotted this and it has the right thread title so I won't confuse the issue by starting a second thread. 

(a) CET forecasts -- the averages and extremes

includes all values 1981 to 2019 colour coded for warmest, middle and coolest thirds (13, 14, 12 due to ties).

At 16.1, 2003 and 2018 were tied 18th warmest which is the least extreme such ranking for any month in the period 1981 to 2019. The next in line is May (where May 1992 was tied 6th warmest). June is also the only month that has a more extreme cold rank since 1981 (June 1991 -- 8th coldest) than its warmest rank. From 2010 to 2015 December shared that distinction. Besides December 2010 (2nd coldest) and June 1991 (8th coldest) the only other months since 1981 with coldest 15 placements in the entire period of record since 1659 are Feb 1986 (5th coldest), March 2013 (tied 12th coldest), May 1996 (tied 13th coldest), Sept 1986 (tied 14th coldest), and Dec 1981 (tied 8th coldest).

  June 2020 will be a record warm one. CET 18.5.C  It will be very anticyclonic and very dry too. Dry but not unusually warm at first with a few chilly nights but heat building in SE Europe at present will plume up in SE winds in the last 10 days giving temperatures breaking the all time record, 41.3.C and a night not dropping below 26.C following. The headlines will be all about schools closing again due to heat jus5 after some reopen due to Coronavirus. Will it last? No. This will be a front loaded Summer with a warm but very unstable July full of vicious thunderstorms and an absolutely abysmal August.

16.6 and 63.5 mm. That would make it the warmest June since 1976, but 1.6 short of the record in 1846. Seems like western Europe has become a stable location for persistent ridge development and the lack of aviation may lead to even sunnier skies than normal under any ridge that develops, which may heat things up slightly, however I foresee the pattern breaking down slowly near the end of June for a more unsettled start to July. Sort of like a forecast posted earlier but less extreme maybe? I do see that same pattern evolution though.

Very different from the forecast you posted on the summer predictions thread. What's changed?

For me only the June portion has changed, I think the other earlier forecast on this thread that I referenced predicted that the pattern would stay bad in July and August but I would hold to what I said earlier for later July into August, improving again after the unsettled early part of July, later in the summer. So in my case I have only changed my mind about June and probably mid-June would be the most likely time for the heat to build. I might scale that 16.6 back closer to deadline if the models are not supportive of blocking.
