As Brits know, it has been an unusually mild November, but, as the Met Office show, not unprecedented, as both 1994 and 2011 were warmer.

Curiously though, it was no warmer than November 1818!

As far as the CET YTD is concerned, although the YTD is 0.42C warmer than the 1961-90 mean, what the Met Office omit to tell us is that it is still 0.16C cooler than the 1981-2010 average, which they are supposed to be formally using.

Given latest forecasts, it looks as though the year will finish close to the latter.

    Yes, the MO will continue to use 1961-90 for comparison purposes, because it was even colder than 1941-70, 1931-60 and 1921-50 or at least it used to be.

      I’m in touch with him to progress matters
