Central England air temperatures since 1659

 

The Central England surface air temperature series is the longest existing meteorological record. Thin lines = annual values. Thick lines = running 11 yr average. The above graphs for annual, summer and winter temperatures have been prepared using the composite monthly meteorological series originally painstakingly homogenized and published by the late professor Gordon Manley (1974). The data series is now being updated by the Hadley Centre and can be downloaded from there by clicking here (several options) or here (the data shown above). Last update: Summer 2013. Last diagram update: 6 October 2013
