June 1941–A Month Of Extremes

By Paul Homewood

 

 Last month was a pretty nondescript month weather wise in the UK, slightly warmer than average with some pleasant interludes, but little else of note.

What was it like eighty years ago?

 

 The main highlight in June 1941 was the exceptionally hot weather on the 21st/22nd, with temperatures hitting 94F (34.4C) in Camden. Some exceptionally high night temperatures were also recorded, such as 66F at Ross on Wye, the highest for any month since 1911.

But it was also a month of temperature extremes, with some particularly low temperatures early in the month. Oxford saw its lowest June daily max temperature since 1909, and Southport its lowest June night temperature since 1903.

 Nowadays, the Met Office would blame these extremes on climate change. In those days, they had better things to worry about!
