Nice job, but lows would have been nice.

Helsinki's were: 13.2C, 13.3C and 12.5C. So no need to check that.

But they're all sooooooooo baaaaaaaaaaaaaad. Rome and Madrid too warm, the rest too cold.

I take Warsaw. Steadiest temps and 30C in all months.

Oslo, Helsinki and Moscow stand out. You could've taken Dublin and Reykjavik as well.

An average summer in most of Europe, following an exceptionally cold, damp, late winter and spring. And fall is already there in most of Europe, and technically we're still late summer.
2013 : a forgettable year in Europe, weatherwise!

Temp-wise, I choose Rome. I see that Charles-de-Gaulle was significantly cooler than Orly in August.

yeah it wasnt an extremely good summer in most areas. It was the best in UK since 2006 tho. Madrid seems a bit brutal and Oslo just pathetic.

pretty bad summer in most parts of Europe. Here in Germany, the temperatures got damn hot, too... Had some days with 36C highs, which is definetely really hot for my area. Among the capitals listed above, there are only a few ones with a 2013-summer, which still deserves the label "acceptable" and I certainly would choose Oslo since it's obviously the coldest.. but even the Oslo-summer was too hot for my taste... I probably should have spent the summer in Reykjavik..
