Amsterdam 1996. Remarkably cool for being Amsterdam and the coastal Netherlands.

Even though I was just seven, I remember 1998 as a very cool and rainy summer in Sweden, but now I see where the warmth went. At least in relative terms. Inukjuak had a June 7C (!) above average, way more than July 2018 was above average in most of Sweden. Also, December was 5C above average, three months above 10C means and a very mild autumn courtesy of the sea being warmer than usual, almost brought this 58N tundra climate on Hudson Bay to have highs above freezing for the full year.

As for how remarkable that June is, most often the Hudson Bay is frozen over for much of that month. Anyone who knows about Inukjuak's climate will see how stunning of a year that was Also, in spite of warm interior southerlies dominating and it being at a relatively low latitude, it didn't go above 25C all year, unlike many colder ones...

Sable Island, the only landmass in the North Atlantic between Nova Scotia and Galicia, was a combination of the warm Arctic Canadian summer and the cool summers here in the aforementioned year of 1998. Very stable of course, being out on the open sea, but at least August was a bit above average. Precipitation really went back and forth though.

London in 1996. Cool and dry. A cold winter and spring but a warm and sunny June.

Pershore in 1996. It was the driest year on record, and unlike in London the driest month of the year was November. With no recorded rainfall it was the driest month in history. Climate type was so close to Bsk (cold semi-arid) having 12.8 mm more rain than the threshold for the temperature and precipitation pattern. Instead it was the usual temperate oceanic.

Responding to both B87 and yourself

Summer didn't show up here in 1996, so quite interesting that Britain was much warmer than both the Netherlands and here. Usually, all three tend to be rather similar for July.

I looked at Halifax (the Nova Scotia one) for 1996 to see whether it replicated any European trends that year and aside from May being a freezer, very little mirrored. September rainfall was quite remarkable either way!

May is hardly a freezer, not even cold enough for a fridge
