Global Warming
31 August 2019 20:42:12

This thread is for all comments, discussion and analysis of temperatures in the UK during September, 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 back yard.  


August has been a slightly above average month overall. 


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


The deadline for predictions is 2359 tonight (Saturday evening). 


Now on to some data for September


Historic CET summary for September


1971-2000 13.7C (30 years)  


1981-2010 14.0C (30 years) 


1999-2018 14.4C (last 20 years)  


September last year was average with 13.7C with 13.5C in the previous year. 2016 was very warm with 16.0C whereas 2015 was cool with 12.7C. 


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

Thanks GW. An interesting spread of predictions there. Col could open up a significant lead if a decent September heatwave manifests.

That's what I'm counting on. I feel that summer hasn't finished with us yet and like the past few months there will be a dose of heat towards the end of the month. This  line of thinking paid off in August and I'm hoping the weather pattern continues and it pays off in September as well. It is something of a gamble though, it could go badly wrong and if one of my closest rivals has a good month I could lose my lead entirely!

A strong warm spell is certainly plausible with the background drivers bearing some similarity to Sep 2011 for example.


I've factored that in too, but couldn't drum up enough confidence to anticipate a long and strong enough warm spell to do more than neutralise the CET anomaly after the unusually cool opening 10 days or so.


Perhaps I'll regret that - after all, anticipating a big turnaround worked well in July & August.



The 00z ECM looks promising for a mid-month very warm spell, but the 00z FV3/GFS could hardly be more different. The two models have been at odds for several 00z/12z runs now.

Same here SC. I'm spotting the potential mid month heatwave but I can't ignore these first 10 days. Nigh time temps are starting to drop into single digits with increasing frequency.


I didn't dare go above 14.32 as a result.

We finally have a GFS run that depicts a big mid-month warm-up, albeit only lasting a week.


It's enough to rocket a rough CET estimate upward from just 13.4*C as of 10th to 14.7*C as of 18th. 


So, it goes to show how rapidly the 'flavour' of the month can change.


 


Worth noting the seasonal cooling trend with time though; applying long-term average from 21st onward temps thereafter results in the CET estimate dropping from the mid-14s as of 20th (end of FV3 run) to the low 14s as of month's end.


Sep 2011 was, however, an extremely strong reminder that the seasonal trend doesn't always apply!

GW..


Can you help me (or anybody please?)


Whenever I view  a posting of yours - nothing shows. The posting is totally blank.


If I reply  (as per this note) then I am able to see your posting, but not able to access any of your links outside of this forum.


If I access your profile I can then 'see' the last 10 postings of yours.


I was trying to ensure that my entry for this months competition was OK, but I am unable to see the table you have shown above.


 


It must be some 'option' somewhere, but I am lost as to where to start to resolve the issue. I wondered if I had accidently blocked you but can find no evidence of it..


Anyone else had the same problem?


 


Grandad 


 


Edit...


Just found a shoe/hide option at the end of your post.


If I click on 'show' the post appears. So how do I turn the 'hide' feature on/off is probably the question I need to ask? 


 


Oh no.... now I cannot see this post?     Can anyone else?


PS  I can see everyone elses posts OK>>>


 


 


PSS... Problem solved.....


I have found a 'show' all user  posts if I access the profile for Global Warming or anyone else.


I was not aware the option existed and must have turned it to 'hide' when I sent the PM for Sept CET  to you over2 weeks ago, before my hols.


I have just got back from holidays and I could not see any of my own (or more importantly) your posts.

GFS 00z possibly showed us the ultimate warmest possible outcome for mid-Sep with a prolonged southerly delivering a dozen days of increasingly impressive warmth. This catapults a rough CET estimate of mine up to 15.6*C as of 22nd, to the sound of much gleeful chuckling from Col in my overactive imagination.


Even exactly average conditions thereafter would land the final CET around the 15*C mark.


The 06z is more restrained, but still suggests that the CET may be a good way through the 14s by 23rd. ECM shows good support for the precursor UK high setup D6-D10.


Starting to wonder if I'll regret punting for a total balance of cool and warm this month.

I did see that run and to be honest couldn't quite believe what I was seeing. It was apparently very much a warm/hot outlier though. So no 'gleeful chuckling' here at camp Col, at least not yet. It's more of a cautious optimism, after all the forecast warm weather is still a week away.

Ouch! That's quite a drop, presumably primarily due to low overnight minima. It will take another hit today as well, this time mainly because of low maxima. After that I expect it will make a general steady rise, hopefully for some time to come!
