    May 1909 was the month for sunshine, June 1909 was the month for dullness, coldness and in places for its wetness. It was an absolute shocker.

    Northerly winds were frequent during the month.

    The statistics for that month make interesting reading indeed.

    Mean maximum temp at that time for London in June was 71.3F (about 21.6C)? Comparing that with http://www.weather-uk.com/hampstead/0806M.html (which gives 19.9C as the mean max for June in London from 1971-2000) suggests it is true that Junes were hotter back then.

    The sub-100 hour sunshine readings are shocking in June (and would be now); however the absolute maxima and number of warm days are comparable to several recent Junes (1991, 1997, 1998, 2002, 2007)- the fact that the 1909 observers regarded them as noteworthy suggest they expected better from June.

    Don't really agree with your analysis.

    June 1909 had a CET of just 11.8, June 1997 and 1998 had CETs of 14.1 and 14.2 respectively. They weren't cool Junes overall. June 1997 had a CET of 15.4 up to mid month compare to 10.7 for June 1909.

    June 2002 had a CET of 14.3 and June 2007 had a CET of 15.1

    Only June 1991 can you really compare to June 1909 in that listing, at least for the CET.

    CET mean maxima

    June 1909: 15.5

    June 1991: 16.0

    June 1998: 17.9

    June 1997: 18.0

    June 2002: 18.7

    June 2007: 19.3

    Also Camden Square is a "warmer" station than Hampstead. Its data has been questioned.

    Just had a look at the Buxton record and June 1909 came in with a mean of 10.0c, the equal 4th lowest in 138 years of records.;it was equalled in 1874, 1916, 1927 and 1978.

    The only cooler Junes were in 1919 with 9.3c, 1922 with 9.9c and 1972 with 9.8c. The highest max' in June 1909 was 18.2c, the second lowest on record, only June 1972 had a lower extreme max' with a remarkably low 16.6c.
