As forecast a few days ago, the Indian summer arrived and has departed, at least in these parts. (It’s cold and wet today in Yorkshire).

 

The ever sensible Paul Hudson, however, points out that the hottest September temperature ever recorded in the UK was 35.6C in 1906!

    This and similar reports in the UK this week just show how the media exaggerate current weather and make it sound more extreme than it is. 30C (86F) on a single day somewhere in England in September is unusual but happens every few years and sometimes as late as the end of the month. We have even had temperatures of 29/84 in early October – as recently as in 2011. The 1906 early September heatwave was one of the hottest ever to be recorded at any time of year in England and a number of places recorded temperatures in excess of 32C (90F) for four consecutive days even as far north as Yorkshire.
