Is the world warming? England is!

The world’s oldest continuous weather record covers a triangular area in England between London (where I live), Manchester (where I was brought up) and Bristol – it dates back to 1659.

This record reveals that the average day and night temperature in central England between 1 March  and 29 May this year was 10.32C. Previous average highs were 10.20C in 1893 and 10.10C in 2007.

So this spring has been the warmest since records began more than three and a half centuries ago. More information here.
