    (a) CET forecasts -- the averages and extremes

    includes all values 1981 to 2021, bold warmest, italic middle third, underlined coolest third. (14, 14, 13 due to ties). 

    where possible I have converted values from CET legacy to the new CET v2.0. Notice this produces a new warmest June day. The 30-year average for 1992-2021 has finally overtaken the previous high benchmark for June (1822-51) as cool June 1991 was dropped for warm June 2021. That means we no longer have any month with its warmest 30-year interval in the distant past. On the other hand, quite a few Junes in the interval 1981 to 2000 have been dropped by 0.1 or 0.2 in v2.0, and this leads to lower averages for 1961-90, 1971-2000 and 1981-2010 than we have been listing here (each has dropped by 0.1).

    14.7 please thank you 

     

    I'm not expecting anything significantly below average as that just doesn't seem to happen these days but I'm not entirely convinced it will be a much warmer than average month either.

    June's actually the only month that has struggled to record a very high mean since the 70s.

    I think it's also been over 100 years since we have had a 14C May too.
