2019 looks in with a chance of displacing 2011 as worst August if the stupefyingly awful model output I'm seeing at the moment comes to fruition. 


2010s - The Worst Decade for Warmth (or any other type of extreme)

Decadal High Temperatures at Dyce:

1950s: 28.9C, 7th June 1950

1960s: 27.4C, 14th July 1969

1970s: 28.4C, 25th August 1976

1980s: 28.0C, 14th July 1986

1990s: 29.7C, 21st August 1995

2000s: 29.8C, 17th July 2006

2010s: 27.2C, 22nd July 2018

The last several Augusts have been either disappointing or just about average,even the current August ,although the temps are about average or abit above,its generally unsettled.Of course the problem with August is,that it forms the bulk of the school holidays,so for many people will skew their perception of the overall summer,even if June and July were good months weather wise


Octobers seem to have been nearly like an extension of summer in recent years.With daytime max above 20c becoming more common,with some Octobers having quite a few days with a higher max temp than the previous August.Holloween afew years ago was the warmest on record,felt nearly tropical,if the temps had held on for 24hrs,the November all time max temp could have been smashed


Dec 2010 and March 2018 for showing  that despite possible climate change and warmer temps in general,there is still the possibility of severe cold weather and heavy snow. Xmas 2010 still remains the only time in my lifetime ( im over 40) that I have seen deep lying snow on xmas day

2012-2013 - Almost 18 months of Autumn (and not the nice bits of Autumn, either). Dreadful.
