CET 30-Year Averages

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

The World Meteorological Organisation is clear about defining climate average:

It is disappointing then that the Met Office still continues to use the 1981-2010 period as its base. By doing this, of course, it exaggerates temperature increases in the UK.

If we look at the Central England Temperature mean temperatures, for example, we see that both winter and spring this year were colder than average, whilst summer was only 0.3C warmer:

The calendar year to date is actually 0.5C colder than average.

What the climate used to be forty years ago, I would suggest, is utterly irrelevant to most people, who are used to living in the current climate.
