I've mentioned this stat before in other threads, but I'll repeat it again because I can never get enough of it:

Average high temperature in Aboyne, north-east Scotland:

March 2012 - 14.2C (+5.2C)
June 2012 - 14.0C (-3.1C)

(Days above 20C: March 4, June 0)

First of all I would suspect that an average high of 14.2C must be a record for March for anywhere at an equivalent latitude (57N), secondly, is there anywhere else in the world supposedly with a four-season climate where the month of the spring equinox has recorded a higher average Tmax than the month of the summer solstice at all, never mind in the same year?

insanity.

one of my favourite extremes from sweden (google translate)

31 August 1997 we heard the news about the floods in western Dalarna and especially along Fulan where such Sörsjön hit hard. The road network west of Fulan were cut in several places. It was not until Alf Nordin, Supervisor for the Western Valley Nature Reserve, talked about the devastation in P1's Saturday program Naturmorgon and when Bengt Oldhammer with a fine portrayal in words and pictures describing a hike up along the Great Göljån (Dala-Democrat, 16/9 ) that we began ana that this was among the worst that taken place in our country when it comes large rain amounts in short time and devastating erosion. Perhaps our little late awakening was due to a certain saturation for all the summer before the downpour! Could it really be worse, and so in this summer's final days in addition?

Crazy warmth the territories are experiencing right now. Whitehorse has forecast highs in the 20s everyday this coming week and has already had over a week of temperatures above 20. I wonder if this will end up being their warmest May ever.

Average highs show sometimes a weird pattern here, like in 2003: record warm July and September and the coldest August of the last decades in between:

Jul: 31.3 °C
Aug: 22.2 °C
Sep: 25.0 °C

or May warmer than July in 2011:

May: 23.9 °C
Jun: 23.9 °C
Jul: 23.1 °C

of course it's lame compared to ben's Scotland-stats ^^

Impressive, though I think it would be harder for Tmean to be higher in March than June. Looks like even Eureka, California may not even been able to pull a June max colder than March. A high of 14.2°C would be above average for March there, though not record breaking. San Francisco has done a warmer March than June before, and may do so again this year. But it's at 37° and obviously not a four season climate.

Nobody alive today experienced a May this dry in many locations. Here's a graphic I put together.

Concord only 0.10" so far, 112 yrs of records.
Even NYC only 1903 was drier.

Still 5 days left and 1 thunderstorm can ruin the stats but most likely end up in Top 10 at least

2006, not 2003
On top of that July was the sunniest month ever and August the record cloudiest August.

On 6th August 1910, the Shetlands recorded a temperature of 27.8c, while nowhere else in the UK managed to get above 20c!

Our May here on the left coast is quite dry too. Only 2 mm (0.08") in Victoria, BC so far, which is a record if it can hold.
