    I’ve been meaning to post about the English stats too!
    “The provisional mean value for the month is 19.0 °C”; “3.6 °C above the 1961-1990 average, which is in the exceptionally above average category. In fact it is the warmest month in the series – the previous warmest month was July 1983 with 18.6 °C.”

    3.6C is a huge, huge amount across a whole month. While August is a lot cooler (and maybe below average so far), this sort of figure must be worrying, even if it was pleasant while it lasted.

    Well, I’d debate about the pleasantness of it, but then I’m a cold-optimised northern person… another thing to bear in mind is the variability of the weather these days, from heatwave July to under-average August. The leaves on the trees round about here are already turning (a little) and the rowan berries are bright red, at least a couple of weeks early…
