An overcast day in May with a maximum temperature of 50 degrees would be pretty unusual here. Indeed, the lowest maximum temperature I could find for Leeds Weather Centre in May is 49F.

Then even the weather in Nain, Labrador may be enough to cheer you up. In most summers there are usually a batch of rainy days with highs in the 40's. Of course this would smash all records in England for June, July, or August, so as B87 pointed out, the English climate isn't that bad.

Wrong.

Clima en LEEDS WEATHER CTR durante Mayo de 1995 - datos climáticos históricos

Clima en LEEDS WEATHER CTR durante Mayo de 1996 - datos climáticos históricos

Clima en LEEDS WEATHER CTR durante Mayo de 1997 - datos climáticos históricos

These months have at least one day failing to exceed 6-8°C, and looking at all the other Mays at Leeds Weather Center, 50-52°F maxes are not in the slightest bit unusual.

Now; if we are really headed for the "coldest May in 100 years " (yeah right) and this cold pattern persists you may be seeing quite a few sub 50°F maxes rather soon.

Oh yeah, way to pick the coldest May's you could find. May 1996 looks exceptionally cold for here and is the only month you have posted with a maximum temperature of 6C and that's only once, and even during May 1997 when it snowed, there weren't many sub 50F maxes.. maybe it's normal for Buxton though?

Well of course, the averages are made up of both warmer Mays and colder Mays. Just admit you are wrong to say that a high of 50°F is "pretty unusual there", because you are unless you want to deny years worth of data as you did when suggesting the lowest max was 49°F.

Yes, and the colder Mays are unusual. I said 50F maximums are not common in May, they're not.

You was wrong, deal with it. You said it's "pretty unusual here", and no it is not; and you lied about the lowest max there also, which I refuted with hard solid data. Wrong.

Looks like you're a week or two weeks behind us, but possibly ahead of the hills (1000-2000 feet) here. I keep trying to figure what the setting is. Is it a residential neighborhood in a forested setting or some sorta park?

London Heathrow has only recorded a sub 50F maximum in May once.
