Default Warmest Year I've Ever Recorded

I have just updated my yearly temperature charts for 2004 and was shocked to
discover that it has been the warmest year I have ever recorded. Last years
day time temps were a little higher overall but night temps this year were
significantly warmer.

How many years does your record cover? Without that information, I don't
know whether or not I ought to be shocked as well.

Default Warmest Year I've Ever Recorded

Back to 1987, however there are some holes in my records. I have day+night
temps from December 1988 to July 1999 and then from August 2001 to present.
The warmest years we 2004, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2003. The primary reason
2004 was so warm appears to be due to mild nights during winter months.

Based on CET data for the period May-September, 2004 was the 26th warmest
since 1659, with an average of 15.16. The warmest such period was in 1947
with 15.90.

This is easily explained by there being so much cloud cover! 2004 was one of the
gloomiest if not the gloomiest year (well here in High Wycombe anyhoo) I have
ever known - and lower daytime temps than last year is not difficult to achieve
considering how warm and sunny 2003 was. The higher than average night temps for
2004 bears out the considerably higher than average cloud cover we endured!

2004 will be remembered by me for the numerous occasions where a whole week or
more passed without any sight of the sun at all!

Oh I agree with you about the cloud!!! I have never seen such a dismal
spell of weather. It seemed to last from the end of October to the middle
of December.
