..by 0.03. obviously a small amount, but still a record. unsurprising, if you didn't notice that january was much warmer than it should be then you don't feel the warm or understand how cold winters used to be. seems to me as if 2020 will be warmest year on record, given that when january was this warm was 2016 which was the warmest year? Feel free to debate me on that one though.

January 2020 was the hottest because the EU is trying to melt us after we successfully Got Brexit Done. :yes:






And genuinely, yes it has been a mild one, very little snow and I'm not extremely sad about that to be honest. It does worry me for how hot this summer's going to be though.

Hmmm, maybe, but there's no correlation between mild winters and hot summers. 2016 was the warmest on record yet summer here was...average. Hottest day was actually in September.

I won't lie I have been worired about climate change, but to a certain extent I believe there's very little I can personally do, apart from what I already do in campaigning for a labour government. And even then, that won't have much of a change given that this country already does more than others in that department.

We need to do Brexit again and stop the EU from trying to melt us!

April march could be colder than normal because of weakened polar vortex. Unless of course we have what we did last year where we got 20c in Feb. That was freakishly warm

Persistent positive-neutral/weak Nino values are largely to blame (lots of heat in the Pacific being released into the atmosphere), we've had the same conditions since mid-2018 (indeed 2016 came off the back of a super Nino).

I would suspect we probably won't beat 2016 globally purely because we have seen a weaker event even if as persistent which should mean that when La Nina develops (several models are now suggesting this could be the case) the globe should cool more quickly (especially since the PDO appears to have finally gone negative - whether it will be sustained or not we shall see).

When is La Nina going to develop then based on models?

Those that show it suggest the summer (statistically i would add that summers in flip to nina years are rubbish in the UK).
