Monday is surely going to be a strong contender for the hottest CET day ever, and by some margin?
The record to beat is 25.2C (set on 29 Jul 1948 & 25 Jul 2019).
Looking at the UKV, even a conservative estimate would have a max for the CET area of 36C and a minimum of 21C, giving a mean of 28.5C.
Taking the more extreme end of a 38C max and a 22C minimum we would end up with a 30C CET day, which is just ridiculous to contemplate.
I think some of these historical data were slighly altered when CET 2.0.0 was started a few weeks ago
Just to be a bit pedantic, the leader on its own now is 25 July 2019 at 25.3C
(12/08/2020 is 2nd at 25.2C and 29/07/1948 3rd at 25.1C)
As one of the 3 CET locations is in Lancashire I am not sure a combined average max of 36C is goint to be that easy - but should be interestung to see
