Also Ian its a pity you didnt do a mean monthly temps trial for the whole of summer at least for Greece.Heat will catch up again in the next few days in Greece and given an extremely hot June and July I believe that the summer of 2012 will probably be the warmest Greek summer ever in terms of mean monthly temps.It will be long before any stations outside Greece will manage to beat the probable records we are to see.
Just to say that Thiseio in Athens had a June simple mean of 28.5C and I am expecting a record simple mean for July close to 31.5C and if August continues in the same path we are talking obviously about the warmest summer ever in Greece and Europe actually...
Yes well unfortunately the summer max challenge, the daily extremes in Europe alone can take up to 2 or 3 hours of my day, then i have the UK annual challenge which i keep falling behind on, least that finishes at the end of this month. I am considering an autumn heat thread but for holiday destinations so perhaps mainly resorts really, this could help a few people decided that are either on a budget or prefer it less hot, or hot when choosing to go abroad in the autumn. For once the hottest doesnt have to be the best for some people, not sure whether to use just max temps or mean max/min temps or whether to go with it at all yet. Thoughts?
