A little idea I came up with.

Month fusion is the combining of two months into one. Aside from just averageing the two months together, there will be various effects from the fusion:

If the two months are similar to one another, then they can be synergistic, and the resulting month will be even more extreme than either fusee. The fusees must be similar to one another for synergism to occur. For instance, a fusion of Aprils 2007 and 2011 would be extremely synergistic, while a fusion of Decembers 2015 and 2010 would be antagonistic and will likely have all the extremity removed.

The rules are:

Only months of the same season are able to fuse. It wouldn't make much sense for January 1963 to fuse with August 1995, would it?

Calculation of temperature for each day: If one or both days from the fusees are less than five degrees Celsius above or below average, the values from the fusees are averaged together to produce a mean temperature. If both days are above/below average by five degrees or more, two degrees are added or removed respectively to/from the higher-anomaly figure. The same calculation applies to both daily maxima and minima.

Calculation of precipitation: If both fusees are more than 50% drier or wetter than average, then the driest/wettest fusee's rainfall is halved/doubled. Otherwise, precipitation is the mean average between the fusees.

Calculation of mean temperature: If anyone can be bothered to calculate this, this will be calculated on a fusion to fusion basis.

With the rules established, fuse your months!

I assume you're doing the fusing? I like your idea. Can we have an unlimited amount fusions?

First one that came to mind is a fusion between January 1963 and January 1984. The former was obviously extremely cold while the latter was very low pressure dominated and very snowy and cold in the north but relatively mild in the south. I imagine a fusion would produce a very cold and very snowy month, though with temporary thaws at times from milder incursions, but lots of very heavy snowfall and quick returns to cold.

Do these have to be "fused" at exactly mid month or can we be a few days either side?

1. You could make a good July out of the first half of July 2017 and the second of July 2008, even though both Julys in their entirety were less than great. The point I'd like to place the fusion, though, is 18th to 19th. You'd get the big storms of 18 July 2017 but not the grotty deluge that came after. Instead 19 July of the fused month would take over 2008's weather and thus be cool but dry, the 20th the same, and then there'd be a further 8 day fine warm spell from the 21st with unsettled weather only getting in at the end.

2. You could make an impressively cold January out of the first half of 1997 and second half of 1996. Again I'd like to vary the fusion date if possible, from Jan 19 1997 to Jan 20 1996, to completely exclude any mild days from 1996. If allowed, this might even be the coldest since 1963, so cold were the first 10 days of 1997. So we'd have the severe spell at the start of 1997, a short dull interlude, the sunny frosty weather with average days of mid-Jan 1997, a second dull interlude, then the easterlies of late Jan 1996.

3. How about first half of June 2021 with second half of June 2018. Impressively sunny and dry, I suspect.

Lots more I can probably think of, but that'll do for now.

Yes, unless others want to volunteer and do them as well to save me time.

Of course.

I'll be working on this one.

The fusion doesn't work like that. It's more like Dragon Ball fusion where the two combine to create an entirely new month with traits of both fusees.

I always thought that the first half of July 2015 and the second half of July 2020 would be a interesting month quite warm with an extremely hot first and last day but I don’t know any stats like how wet the month would be and how warm overall.

fusing the first half of July 1976 and the second half of July 2006 together would probably break the record for most days at 30 degrees in a month and be a scorcher of a month.

OK here's a potentially interesting one. A fusion of Feb 1986 with Feb 2010.

Doing contrasts for March :

First half of March 1947 and Second half of March 2013 for extreme cold and snow
First half of March 2014 and Second half of March 2012 for extreme warmth and incessant sunshine
First half of March 1995 and Second half of March 2022 for extreme variety
First half of March 1996 and Second half of March 2001 for an extremely dull and boring month
First half of March 2014 and Second half of March 2013 for an extreme warm-to-cold contrast
First half of March 1983 and Second half of March 2023 for an extremely dire month

All very good suggestions. Bear in mind these will all take me some time to do each.

Also a reminder that the fusees don't have to be the same month - The three months across each season can also fuse with each other!

First half of July 2015 and 2nd half of July 2016 would produce a pleasant, dry and sunny month, rather than the poor 2015 and mixed 2016 reality.

I'd just go for the whole of March 2023!

I only have vague memories of March 1983 but I think it was quite benign, if a little uninteresting. The most unsettled weather was at the end, and the first half was particularly benign. The Southampton records suggest just 34.1mm of rain, the driest March of the 80s and indeed the driest between 1977 and 1989 inclusive. Or do you mean March 1981?

Here is our first fused month!

The year is 2024, and mild winters have taken the upper hand. Despite the best efforts of the very coldest winter months, they are unable to overcome the barrage of mildness. There is only one option left...

January 1963: 1984, put on this earring!

January 1984: What good will jewelry do in this situation?!

January 1963: These earrings will allow us to combine our powers into something more powerful than either of us alone!

Janaury 1984: Well, there isn't much of a choice left, is there... Puts on earring

January 6384


1st: Max temp 9.8°C, Min temp -4.5°C
2nd: Max temp 9.5°C, Min temp -6.2°C
3rd: Max temp 7.9°C, Min temp -4.6°C
4th: Max temp 9.1°C, Min temp -5.9°C
5th: Max temp 10.3°C, Min temp -6.5°C
6th: Max temp 9.4°C, Min temp -7.2°C
7th: Max temp 8.5°C, Min temp -11.0°C
8th: Max temp 8.1°C, Min temp -9.4°C
9th: Max temp 9.2°C, Min temp -19.8°C
10th: Max temp 9.5°C, Min temp -18.7°C
11th: Max temp 8.8°C, Min temp -10.3°C
12th: Max temp 11.1°C, Min temp -11.5°C
13th: Max temp 10.1°C, Min temp -12.4°C
14th: Max temp 11.0°C, Min temp -19.8°C
15th: Max temp 9.1°C, Min temp -16.3°C
16th: Max temp 10.4°C, Min temp -14.8°C
17th: Max temp 7.0°C, Min temp -20.3°C
18th: Max temp 8.5°C, Min temp -24.2°C
19th: Max temp 7.1°C, Min temp -20.3°C
20th: Max temp 6.5°C, Min temp -25.6°C
21st: Max temp 8.5°C, Min temp -25.0°C
22nd: Max temp 8.4°C, Min temp -20.9°C
23rd: Max temp 8.7°C, Min temp -22.0°C
24th: Max temp 7.9°C, Min temp -20.3°C
25th: Max temp 9.1°C, Min temp -19.2°C
26th: Max temp 9.7°C, Min temp -21.4°C
27th: Max temp 9.4°C, Min temp -21.1°C
28th: Max temp 8.9°C, Min temp -11.1°C
29th: Max temp 8.7°C, Min temp -9.3°C
30th: Max temp 9.4°C, Min temp -5.5°C
31st: Max temp 9.3°C, Min temp -10.3°C

Bold entries denote a synergistic value. Red denotes a hot (+2°C on the highest value) synergy, while blue denotes a cold (-2°C on the lowest value) synergy.

January 1963 precipitation = 32.6mm
50% drier than average? Yes
50% wetter than average? No

January 1984 precipitation = 170.2mm
50% drier than average? No
50% wetter than average? Yes

January 6384's precipitation will therefore be the average mean between the fusees.
January 6384 precipitation: 101.4mm

Overall, January 1963 was a deep cold snap that largely hit the south the hardest, while January 1984 hit the far north very hard, and had less of an impact further south. Together, they produce an extremely cold month with eight consecutive nights below -20°C and ten overall. The combination of 1963's extremely cold pool and 1984's high precipitation would produce extremely heavy snowfall events, especially in the east which struggled to stay much above zero the entire month aside from a very brief thaw around the 13th. All in all, January 6384 would be most comparable to February 1947, with even colder nights.

I think I'll do the July 1976 + July 2006 fusion first, as I'm quite curious as to how it's going to turn out with the fusion rules. July 2015 + July 2020 will probably be a bit less groundbreaking, but I'll keep it in the list.

So far the list is:

July 1976/2006 (first in queue)

July 2015/2020

February 1986/2010

All of @baddie's March fusions, will likely be staggered

July 2015/2016

February 1947/2020 (I'll have to get a bit creative for the backstory of that one)

 

Another reminder that the fusees don't have to be the same month! December-February, March-May, June-August and September-November can all fuse as well. The idea is the potential of the two months is multiplied, not just the raw temps and precip. If there are any date conflicts, such as one fusee having 30 days and the other 31, then days with only one fusee will be used without any changes.

 CryoraptorA303 That combination of 1963 and 1984 looks much milder by day than I'd expect. Wouldn't you get a combination of the intense cold of 1963 plus the unsettled nature of 1984 to produce a very snowy month with max temps somewhere between the two?

 Summer8906 The max temps are mostly in Cornwall or the Hebrides. Inland it would very much struggle to get above 5°C all month aside from that brief thaw based on the temps I saw inland.

I should probably clarify here for mild/hot fusions, I'll use the highest recorded daily minimum, while for cold/cool fusions I'll use the lowest. It may also be an idea to use the lowest daily maximum for the cold/cool fusions from here instead of the highest, as the max temps in Scilly and the Hebrides don't tell us all that much, the same as the lowest temps in these regions not telling us much during heatwaves...

 Summer8906 March 2023 wasnt quite "dire" in the first half. Very dry, cold, dull and Easterly for the first 7 days, then snow in my area but cold and wet in Southern areas. Maybe March 1981 had an extremely dire first half that is worse than 2023

For another "dire" combination for June, take the first half of June 2012 and the second half of june 2007 (FInal few days of June 2012 were not quite "miserable", with a couple warm and humid days and Thunder Thursday in my area).

Our next fusion is up, and this time we're going from the very cold to the very hot!

Moving to the summer of 2024, and things have not changed. Mildness is still predominating, and despite the desperate calls for the historic giants, only two have arrived: The arch-enemies of July 1976 and 2006. Forced to work together despite their differences, they are unable to change the course of weather. They both know what has to be done, but have their reservations...

2006: We only have one option left. You know we need to do it.

1976: After all those years of trying to surpass me, with unfair help from humans no less, now you want me to share my power with you?

2006: Trust me, I'm not happy about this either, but we don't have any other choice!

1976: Fine. We'll settle this another day.

2006: Fu-

1976: -sion

2006 & 1976: HA!

July 7606


1st: Max temp 35.5°C, Min temp 23.3°C

5th: Max temp 35.1°C, Min temp 22.5°C
6th: Max temp 36.3°C, Min temp 21.3°C

Bold entries denote a synergistic value. Red denotes a hot (+2°C on the highest value) synergy, while blue denotes a cold (-2°C on the lowest value) synergy.

July 1976 precipitation: 44.4mm
50% drier than average? No
50% wetter than average? No

July 2006 precipitation: 53.1mm
50% drier than average? No
50% wetter than average? No

As neither fusee was either 50% drier or wetter than average, July 7606's precipitation will be the average mean between the two.

July 7606 precipitation: 48.75mm

July 1976 is a bit atypical in that its most major heatwave was in the opening week of the month, while July 2006's major heatwave was more conventionally timed. Because of this, July 7606 is actually a relatively poor fusion. It was simply down to the huge potential of both months that it was still as hot as it was. July 2006 also had a more minor heatwave in its opening week, which heavily synergised with July 1976's major heatwave and produced an incredible six-day spell above at least 35.1°C and peaking at 37.9°C. Perhaps even more incredibly, a whole seven consecutive days saw tropical nights, all of them above at least 21.3°C and peaking at a huge 24.6°C, above anything aside from July 18th 2022. Overall, 11 tropical nights were recorded, which is likely a record for a calendar month. 1976 also had a very minor heatwave around the opening phase of 2006's major heatwave, and stayed on the ball just in time to synergise with 2006's hottest day and produce a peak temperature of 38.5°C for the whole month. However, immediately after this, we can see how poorly 1976 and 2006 worked together, as the rest of 2006's heatwave was heavily nerfed into a long period in the high-20s. Perhaps most demonstrative of this terrible fusion is the 26th, when an incredibly warm night of 23.2°C was recorded, but only 29.9°C was achieved during the day. The in-universe explanation for this would likely be a very hot airmass moving over us at night, with wind blowing to ensure no inversions. In the end, another brief run above 30°C was achieved, but overall 1976's actual record wasn't reached or even approached really, and while some seriously high temperatures were achieved, as was probably the most extreme heatwave ever recorded, the all-time record wasn't reached either.


July 7606 would undoubtedly be the hottest month ever recorded, but I believe much, much higher can be achieved by better fusions. July 7606 is likely one of the least good (hot month + hot month) fusions. Even June 1976 may be a better fusion partner for July 2006 as the two's heatwaves would almost perfectly coincide and synergise.

 

To clarify, synergy occurs when both fusees achieve a temperature at least five degrees above the national average. When this occurs, the highest temperature out of the two will have two degrees added to it. When dealing with a cold fusion, the rule is reversed and the threshold is five degrees below instead, at which point two further degrees will be removed from the lowest temperature out of the two. For England in July, the average high is 21.67°C, so both fusees must achieve at least 26.7°C for synergy to occur. The average low is 11.86°C, so they must both achieve at least 16.9°C for synergy to occur at night. When dealing with fusees that are different months, the averages of those months will apply to both respectively.

When synergy doesn't occur, the temperature for the fused day is simply the mean average between the two fusees.

 baddieThe first week was cold, dull and dry but following the attempted snow on the 8th - which quickly thawed - the dull and wet came straight in on that day and it wasn't even especially cold. Sat 11th, for example, I remember being wet and somewhat mild. Definitely a dire month in this area though it looks like March 1981 was marginally worse, with no significant gaps in the cyclonic onslaught whatsoever.

Oddly I don't remember March 1981 being especially bad but I think that's because all Marches I remember experiencing up to that date weren't much cop either. The period 1977-89 was, as mentioned, a very poor period for Marches. 1985 and 1987 were interestingly cold (as well as wet), 1986 had early heavy snow and was fairly pleasant until mid-month, 1983 was dry in some areas including my area, but the rest were a distinctly dull, wet, unsettled lot.

March 1990 was quite a revelation when it came, as before then I hadn't experienced a particularly warm, sunny and dry March - yet for the following 25 years such Marches were commonplace. Of late, March seems to have trended unsettled again, which in many ways is surprising - it "ought" to be a dry month with neither land nor sea being especially warm and the sea being at its coldest. In particular, we have to go back to 2015 now to find the last time the first half of March was fine.

I think we were just unlucky over the past 15 months and therefore we had 2 poor Marches (The former being absolutely dire and the latter being just poor). March 2022 was mostly dry and very sunny after the 6th, with the only rain on the 11th, 16th and snowfall on the 30th/31st. March 2021 was also very dry apart from the second week (First week was a bit like early-March 2023, but then mild, dry and sunny from mid-month).

I actually created my own fusion on January 1963 and January 1984 by using a mean pressure pattern of each day (thanks to NOAA), basically giving me a unique synoptic pattern.

Weather review for January "6384"

The 1st would have slack pressure with heights to our south-east and low pressure in the Atlantic. By the 2nd that high pressure would be being squeezed by rapidly intesifying low pressure in the Atlantic drawing up a very mild southerly flow. By the 3rd that low pressure would be barreling in with ease and lead to an exceptionally deep dartboard low tracking over the Midlands, probably leading to a spell of severe gales and heavy rain. It would take an unusually southerly track though with it clearing more S/SE and allowing for colder air to filter down over Scotland by the 4th.

This would lead to a drier but colder spell on the 5th and 6th as low pressure cleared away and heights retrogressed in the mid Atlantic. The first proper punch of cold air would arrive on the 7th as low pressure divebombed south thanks to a proper retrograde of high pressure up to Greenland, introducing proper cold air to all. The 8th was a cold and raw day with a slack north-easterly flow. Pressure generally collapsed on the 9th and into the 10th leading to a very frosty spell, especially where there was leftover snow cover with temperatures struggling to get above freezing in parts. This lead to a temporarily milder day on the 11th as low pressure came in from the Atlantic, probably giving a snow event where weather fronts met the cold air. This wasn't a return to mild though as the lows were still on a NW/SE trajectory with a repeat of the retrogressive heights.

The 12th saw northerly winds renew and became entrenched until the 17th. A minor feature generated by unstable cold air gave widespread heavy snowfall on the 14th

By the 17th the pattern was changing as northern blocking continued to intensify and low pressure on a southerly track gathered to the southwest. Easterlies generaly remained for the rest of the month.

The 17th to the 20th featured a spell of ferocious blizzards as low pressure from the south-west failed to nudge the omnipresent blocking and generated widespread outbreaks of heavy snow with gale force easterly winds. Somewhat less cold air reached the very far south with areas like Cornwall seeing freezing rain but a renewed burst of cold air from the east by the 21st lead to cold air sweeping the entire country once more with some very low temperatures on the 22nd as pressure rose temporarily.

By the 23rd the next areas of low pressure made their way over the country, this time on a slightly more northerly track though still with cold air entrenched over most of the country. This slightly further north alignment put Scotland more in the firing line and also lead to thawing in the extreme south, though even here it was hardly mild. This heavy snow continued to push north on the 24th before milder air finally started to move in across England on the 25th as low pressure temporarily allowed winds from more of a south-westerly direction come in while the low made its way through which lead to a moderate thawing on the 26th.

Low pressure cleared east by the 27th reintroducing cold easterly air leading to a refreeze of the melting snow leading to some very dangerous conditions. Pressure became quite high on the 28th but remained with a proper Scandinavian high bringing in cold air, thick cloud and wintry flurries. Pressure gradually weakened during the final three days of the month as instability lead to a trough developing over the Low Countries. By the 29th showers became more organised and by the 30th and 31st heavy outbreaks of snow were widespread moving east to west.

@Summer8906 may find this interesting. I know you like a rundown. Hope @CryoraptorA303 doesn't mind these synoptics. May do them alongside you and you can even data-ize it!

 LetItSnow! Nice, yes that does sound very like a 63/84 fusion. I expected a snowfest, essentially the south of England getting what Scotland actually got in 1984.

Incidentally did you use a site to actually calculate the hybrid charts or did you just manually estimate the average charts?

 Summer8906 I used NOAA. Their daily composites allow you to make a mean of anything you want. I tried to read them as proper synoptics charts and did use some artistic vision to make it more realistic.

For example here's a mean of the 1st to the 3rd of January for both years combined. I viewed it as a weak ridge that gets blown away low pressure, a briefly very mild southerly airflow, then a very deep low. This month if real would perhaps quite funny for starting very mild but generally being very cold. I didn't estimate a C.E.T. though.

Will do the July 1976/July 2006 hybrid next.
