CENTRAL ENGLAND EXPERIENCES HISTORICALLY CHILLY OCTOBER
« Reply #63 on: November 04, 2019, 09:11:39 PM »
The UK’s October 2019 sure felt like a chilly one, but now official Met Office temperature data has confirmed it — Central England just experienced a month on par with those of the mid-to-late 1600s.


The Central England Temperature (CET) record measures the monthly mean surface air temperatures for the Midlands region of England, and is the longest series of monthly temperature observations in existence, anywhere in the world.

Its mean reading for October 2019 came in at a nice round 10C — that’s 0.7C below the already cool 1961-1990 average (the current standard period of reference for climatological data used by the WMO).

In the 360 years of CET data, there have only ever been 9 other years with an October average temperature of 10C — these are 1659, 1660, 1663, 1668, 1669, 1670, 1672, 1679, and 1722.

The deficit for England was 0.4C. Met office report:

The screaming headlines from Electroverse are not justified.

The explanation is that the CET is used here, but the number I was quoting was for the whole of England.

https://electroverse.net/heavy-early-season-snow-forecast-to-bury-the-uk-this-weekend/

Late-October threatened it, early/mid-November looks set to deliver it. The Global Forecast System (GFS) is confident of a potentially historic bout of early-season snow battering the UK this weekend.

Latest GFS runs appear to be doubling-down on the next and potentially historic bout of biting Arctic air — on course to hit Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England (even southern England) this weekend.


According to the models, we’re now just 54hrs out.

Low-temperature records are under threat, with the mercury set to sink well below freezing across the majority of the home nations:
