Another exceptional month for global average temperatures 
       The latest data show that this year continues to bring record-breaking temperatures. Every month in 2019 has ranked among the four warmest for the month in question, and June was the warmest June ever recorded. It is now confirmed that July was also an exceptional month.

Hot June, summer afternoon
       As we reported a few weeks ago, last month was, by a significant margin, the hottest June ever recorded. European-average temperatures were more than 2°C above normal, which was almost 1°C above the previous warmest June for Europe, in 1999. The global-average temperature was also a record-breaker, at about 0.1°C higher than that of the previous warmest June, in 2016.

A stormy September
       One of the warmest summers on record has come to an end with a September full of storms. Modelling of historic storms can help us prepare for such events. We use two of the recent storms to demonstrate the improvements we have made with the release of our new ERA5 dataset.
