HADCET Apr 2016 Mean Temperature – Tied For 217th Warmest out of 358

You remember  HADCET (Central England Temperature)? Longest temperature record in existence!.

HADCET April 2016 was tied for 217th warmest out of 354. 

The barplot is the April’s since 1659. The temperature is the anomaly from the 1659 to 2016 average.

The yellow bars are the years warmer than February 2016. Green bars indicate a tie with February 2016. Click twice for bigger.

BBC: Heatwaves “More Likely” claim is ruined by the data

Paul Homewood discusses BBC claims that Heatwaves are more likely due to climate change. And because 2014 was the “hottest” year.

So I decided to look at the HADCET MAXTEMP data.

Not the average. The maximum.

I then arbitrarily set the heatwave boundary at 25C.

And then calculated the number of days over 25 and the longest stretch (ie Heatwave).

Guess what? 2014 barely ranks. Only 8 days above 25.  1911 had 29! (See large table at bottom for 25C heatwaves)

What if I set the Heatwave definition at 30C? There are only 8 years that have days over 30C.

1976 is the winner. And 1976 was 39 years ago! (Corrected from 30)

The 30C days and temps.

Will Britain Enjoy Fewer Cold Days Thanks To Global Warming? No.

A new “study” is out.

“Britain will have fewer days of ‘extreme cold’ and will enjoy milder winters as a direct result of climate change, according to a new study.

The new research is set to cool growing fears that the Northern Hemisphere could be gripped by more severe winters throughout the next century due to the Arctic warming up.”

In these cases I like to turn to HADCET Daily Minimum data which is available from 1878 on. And I thought I would look at the number of days that the minimum was lower or equal to 0C for each year.

 Wow. 2010 had the 6th highest number of days that were 0C or colder. So much for “Global Warming”.
