Yeah for a warm summer! Boo to me for warmer temps when I thought things were going straight down.
The June global temps went back a month.
But the general pattern is neat. This is all 'continental heat', which is just the land warming up, with no ocean involvement.
The end of the Gulf Stream means that the UK is not getting any moist air, which makes for a clammy trumpy handshake. We were lucky in Toronto because we are getting a huge amount of Atlantic air. But this can never last. I suspect that things will be chilly by the second half of August.
