Travel Forums Off Topic Another weather record..

Finally, tonight after more than 6 weeks without a single drop of rain, there will be some showers again. Tomorrow more rain will follow.

This is really a huge weather record, the last one was about 4 weeks in the middle of summer.
The thing is, last year was one record after the other:
For the Netherlands:

2006: warmest year in about 300 years
July 2006: warmest July in about 300 years
September 2006: warmest in 300 y
January 2007: warmest in 300 y
April 2007: warmest in 300 y
Autumn 06 and winter 06/07: warmest in 300 y.
Spring: probably the warmest in 300 y as well.

Not any coincidence anymore I guess, certainly something interesting (well, if you are interested in weather that is)

Certainly no coincidence Michael. Looks like it is becoming a regular feature. By the way, how much increase has occured against previous averges? (in Centigrades). Just want to compare it with Multan.

Hi Zia,
The warmest april so far was in 1993 with average of 11,1 degrees Celcius. April 2007 was 13,1 average! So 2 degrees warmer than the last record and almost 5 degrees warmer than the average april (1971-2000 period).
Average maximum temperature was even 3,5 degrees warmer than the last record.
Last July also was 5 degrees warmer than normal and 1 degree warmer than the previous record (in 2004).
The other months the difference was smaller, and for seasons and year of course the difference was even smaller, but still significant.

Has Multan seen 50 degrees this year? Or Jacobabad? Almost every year Pakistan hits 50 degrees, doesn't it?

Guess you guys don't have to worry about global warming that much. It will take Holland a couple of centuries before it becomes as hot as Multan.
By the way, here it has crossed 48 already. God willing, it Will be 50 (or +) somwhere near May 22-28 (and I am running to the North in those days)

It is really rainy here today. I had forgotten what rain was like! So wet and cold that I didn't want to walk 20 minuntes to my lecture in it, and I am skiving. But, surely rain shouldn't be a big deal, its supposed to be normal for England?

I realised how used to the dry weather we have become, I don't think it rained at all in April, even though its supposed to be such a rainy month. Now it is raining and I am totally unprepared!

It's not the heat that we in the Netherlands need to worry about, it more the risingwater levels. (from both the sea, the rivers).

Clarabell: it's back to the longsleeves here as well, but the garden seems to enjoy the rain.
