I know that GW is or has been on holiday recently why is probably why he hasn't yet published the list of everyone's guesses in the manner in which he normally would have done by now.

However, it will be interesting to see what everyone's guesses actually were once he eventually gets round that that. Personally, I can't actually remember off by hand what I guessed which means that I would currently need to read the PM for that which I sent to GW in order to find that out.

For various reasons though, I'm not too bothered about that for now which means that I can't be bothered with going through those steps which I just mentioned, just to remind myself of what my guess for this month actually was.


In my initial post which members of this forum weren't very happy with due that being posted whilst these guesses were still being submitted, I mentioned that I went for something which was around 1°C warmer than the 1981-2010 average but without any other knowledge, I still don't believe that I would be able to work out what my guess actually was purely from that information alone.

Think it was for something which is roughly around 1°C above the 1981-2010 average.

Hmmm!  Well it’s climbing quite well now with the milder nights and as SC noted, temps have been consistently a couple of degrees higher that the models suggest!  So I may have gone too low!

I would like to see the spread of predictions for July, just to see where I sit in that. How inconsiderate of GW to go on holiday :) We don't even know the June results yet although I know I did pretty well in that. Current CET value is moving upwards nicely but hardly spiralling out of control. No proper heatwave on the horizon that could propel it into the 18s but we're not even at mid-month yet so as ever at this stage of the month, still everything to play for.

I’m in no hurry to see the June results!    


Let’s take a poll on the table spread before GW comes back!  


I’m betting that at least 75% of us have gone above average for July!  What’s your bet?

I went for about 17.7 I think.


My current local stats I've now worked out (after a 16.1 min last night and 25.8 max today).


Mean max to date for July: 24.1°C


Mean min for July: 13.5°C 


Mean T: a pleasing 18.8°C.


Although the hottest day was only above 26, there have been no days below 21 and only 3 days below 23 out of the 12.

Managed 25.5*C here today, giving an integer FV3 model error at 3 days range of... -6*C! 


Could be more large errors for this weekend, as it's one of those N to NE breeze setups that it tends to underestimate maximums the most in.


 


Now averaging 23.9*C (+1.8*C) for the max, 11.7*C (-0.6*C) for the min, so far this month. So both stats are on the up - but it looks a bit fresher for a few days now, which may peg back the min.


 


CET doing well I see - a little more so to this point than I anticipated, in fact. 


Given model signals for a more unsettled yet still at least average spell until Thu or Fri next week, followed by the potential for a very warm or hot spell as the patterns naturally swing back the other way, I'm beginning to sense that while I'll at last be the right side of the LTA, I may not be far enough that side for a good result.


The weather loves its irony .

At least 75% seems about right. It's normally 75% or higher. June was probably something like 90%.

Hurry back GW !


I need to know how far I've slipped down the table after my poor June prediction. 


Once I understand and come to terms with it I can move on.

It's just the waiting isn't it, sheer anguish! Your life is on hold, can't think of anything else!


Think I might be up to 2nd place after June though :)

I can see July finishing CET number being anywhere between 16.8 and 17.3.


GW deserves a decent holiday, give him a break.

With model watching its as much about remembering to forget things as it is forgetting to remember.

D'oh. Wrong person. I'm confusing you with someone else... 


There is someone in the leading pack that was in the running last year...I'll check.

I noticed that typo, normally I would have corrected it myself but on this occasion, hey I just couldn't be bothered.


As for August I have a gut feeling it's going to be a good one. Possibly a very good one. I think this summer is going to turn out very average overall. There has been some distinctly 'average' weather around recently and to counteract much of June being shockingly bad there will need to be a proper heatwave in August. And as had often been said on here, we are long overdue a good August.


I'd like to think that summer 2019 will become known as the 'fine wine' summer. Just gets better as it gets older :)
