From 2015 and includes a look at the heatwave of 1911
By Paul Homewood
Another interesting piece from Philip Eden in the latest Sunday Telegraph, this time looking back at some of the weather extremes in August.
What particularly stood out though was:
I have heard of doubts raised about the Faversham record before, but this is the first time I have seen it officially raised in this way.
Which then raises the question – why are the Met Office still declaring it as their all-time record high?
The “national record” of 100.6F at Kew, which Eden now recognises, can also be put into perspective by the temperatures measured in August 1911. In particular, 100F at Greenwich.
This really shows just how little things have changed in the last 104 years.
