Spring 2017 warmest on record in Central England

Figure 1

It may not have been the warmest May on record, but with the help of a very mild March (ranked #3), Spring 2017 was the warmest since at least 1659 in Central England, with a mean temperature of 10.25°C, which makes the anomaly +2.01°C above the 1961-1990 long-term average. Of course, we are talking here of meteorological seasons MAM, which as you know I’m no great fan of, but what the hell. It was a very closely fought thing though, because 2017 only just pipped 2011 into second place by 0.03°C (fig 3).
