Phew, what a scorcher?? Hardly.
Despite the hype of the last week, the average temperature in England last month was pretty ordinary.
According to the Central England Temperature series, June 2020 was only the 59th warmest on record.
Not only were the four hottest Junes prior to 1900, no June since 1976 has been in the top 17.
As we so often find with British weather, what we do not seem to get these days is the really cold weather extremes of the past. As for Met Office predictions of ever worsening heatwaves, they have clearly not bothered to check their own historical data.
