We know that deneb78 is the one who hates cold above everything else. Well, imagine the situation he had to move last year to Finland, but where should he go? The obvious answer is the island of Utö, which is the warmest and sunniest place in Finland, and one of the few that are 'oceanic' according to Köppen.

Here's the climate data of 2013:


Utö is a very laggy place otherwise as well, but the last year even reinforced that as Mar-Apr was the coldest in 19 years, and don't represent a "normal" year.

The 81-10 normals gives an average of 549 mm of precipitation a year, and 1990 hours of sunshine. 2013 was both drier and sunnier than normal, and I wouldn't be surprised if Utö accumulated 2300 hours of sun and less than 500 mm of precipitation.

How would deneb rate his refuge, and how would the rest of you rate it?

Music to listen to while thinking:

Thought that data looked suspect til I realised it was just one year. I wonder what the long term average is like. If poor old Deneb had to live in Finland I'd despair for him because even the warmest place there is colder than Buxton, and still has feral sub freezing winters.

I give it an E.

Except for Iceland, that might be true. But those are only the 81-10 record temps, so the actual record might be higher. But still, 15.0C lows in July and August are very high for Northern and Central Europe.

The Scilly Isles have a record of only 27.8C (or 82F as was measured at the time) at less than 50N. Kirkwall (Orkney Isles) has a record high of only 25.6C (measured at 78F) at 59N and Lerwick (Shetland) 23.4C / 74F at 60N, though oddly 82F has been recorded elsewhere in the Shetlands back in 1910.

Sure:



columns: temp at 00, 06, 12, 18, mean temp, high, low, abs max, year, min max, year. (only 81-10)



columns: humidity night, afternoon, evening, precipitation, abs max month, year, abs min month, year.
