While we’re looking at the  Central England Temperature series, let’s review the winter figures.

This winter has ended up with a mean of 5.87C, compared with the 1981-2010 average of 4.49C.

While being mild for the most part, it has been a long way from being the warmest winter, which was in 1869, with a mean temperature of 6.77C

In fact, it only ranks as 17th on the list.

 

We keep hearing that “winters are getting warmer”. But it would be more accurate to say that warm winters (or, more to the point, warm weather) are becoming more common, and cold ones less frequent. But the data shows that individual winters nowadays are not actually warmer than some we have experienced in the past.
