    The 1666 CET values for June, July and August were, 15C, 18C and 17C respectively, averaging 16.7C for the summer. That would make it the joint 16th warmest summer on record.

     

    It was the warmest CET summer at the time, but was quickly beaten by 1676, which recorded CET's for JJA of 18C, 16C and 16.5C, or 16.8C on average.

     

    There's a little info here
