Global Warming
Monday, May 31, 2021 9:14:37 AM

This thread is for all comments, discussion, and analysis of temperatures in the UK during June, with particular emphasis on the Central England Temperature (CET), for the simple reason that it is the longest-running temperature series in the world with over 360 years of data. But you can comment on any interesting temperature statistics or data from across the UK, including your own backyard. 


For those taking part in the competition, all CET predictions for June should be sent directly to me via the forum private message system. Please do not post them directly into the thread.  


Historic CET summary for June


1981-2010 14.48C (30 years)   


1991-2020 14.69C (30 years)  


2001-2020 14.88C (last 20 years)  


Last year June was very pleasant with 15.3C. 2017 and 2018 were warmer with both years just reaching 16C. 2015 and 2019 were cooler in the low 14s. Prior to that, 2010-2012 were all in the high 13s.


Here is a chart of the June CET for all years since 1961

Current model output    


850s looking well above average. Interestingly there are two splits in the data. On 3 and 4 June, some runs go much cooler while others keep it very warm. The latest operational run sits right in the middle. We also have a split at the end of the run with a cluster of warm runs but also a strong cluster of quite cool runs. So quite a bit of uncertainty. Generally, it looks like this could be the first month of 2021 with a significantly above-average anomaly. Don't forget the ENS only cover the first half of the month.

ECM (de Bilt) also looks warm with increasing scatter as usual towards the end of the run.

June looking fairly close to average both from a temperature and rainfall perspective. Maybe a slightly above average chance of a warm month.

Yes, looking at tonight's GFS, June (or at least the first half of it) could be the first well-above average period of this year so far. It wouldn't surprise me if we have just seen another synoptic "flip" in our weather where we go from one set of persistent conditions to another. Sent my prediction.

I'm already wondering whether I should have gone higher .


Main uncertainty is how far north the main high pressure belt locates for the mid-month period. On top of that, it's not a simple relationship between how far north and how warm it is; mid-June easterlies can be anything from fresh to hot!


Does appear to be a lot of fine weather on offer for the opening half or so .


Even tomorrow through Thu now looks to stay dry for many of us. Turning fresher from the west by Friday but still pleasantly warm for most of us, before a recovery at the weekend, though with a possibility of wet weather moving up from the south for a time (but GFS not well supported on that).

I have gone for slightly above average and think,based on model evidence,this is going to be not a bad month and more than likely the best month of the summer. Although not overly hot with temps in the low 20`s it feels a different world than than April and May.

I wish I'd gone for something like 16.5C. I've gone way too low.

First look at the June CET tracker. Looking well above average 


A real possibility that the CET could hit 17.0C this month. The last time that happened??..... 1976.


The CET has only exceeded 17C on 4 occasions:


1822  17.1C
1826  17.3C
1846  18.2C
1976  17.0C

  Cheers GW!   Looks like I’ve undercooked it though.

Wow, didn't expect to have the 6th highest estimate for this month!


Given the current outlook, I'm relieved as like Caz and HT I've been thinking I should have gone (even) higher.


That might be a bit presumptuous, though. The main reason I didn't go for a month in the 16s is the presence of an active tropical cycle that will inevitably try to bring about a change to cooler and more changeable conditions for the final third of the month.


I said try for a reason, though - it's not the only player in town and occasionally, other factors override. We saw that big time in late June 2018.

So strange that May and June continue to be the months where we can't seem to get anywhere near records set when Queen Victoria was on the throne .
I'm confident both will be smashed in my lifetime though
