How different from last year! A Green Christmas – the garden sensor is reading at least 20°C warmer than a year ago.
The Daily Mirror’s article yesterday said White Christmas? Forget it, it’s set to be the hottest for 14 years. “The record is 15.6°C, set in 1896.” (no more detail cited)
ABERDEEN may enjoy its warmest Christmas Day ever. “Temperatures are expected to reach up to 14C (57F) taking it above the region’s record of 13.9C experienced at Banffshire in 1900.”
The Daily Mail says “Bookmakers William Hill yesterday slashed their odds on Christmas Day being the warmest ever – beating the 15.6C (60.1F) in Killerton, Devon, in 1920 – to just 4/1.
Christmas Day will be a giant contrast to last year, when the coldest December 25 ever recorded saw Shawbury, Shropshire, at a mind-numbing -15.9C (3.4F), with Altnaharra, Highland, Scotland, at -18.2C (-0.8F).
Parts of the country had a white Christmas and snow was lying at 83 per cent of UK weather stations on Christmas morning – also a record.”
Meanwhile in Canada CBC says“Environment Canada is predicting that parts of Saskatchewan may see the warmest Christmas on record. On Christmas Eve Saskatoon has already broken the 1928 record by two degrees with a high of 7 C.”
Hey, it’s weather not climate.
Merry Christmas to all. Have a lovely one everybody.
