3-year trends to July 2010

Trends to July 2010.

The July 2010 raw data, (orange) shows an extraordinarily moist month. Anomaly values of rainfall, cloudy days, Dew Point, and temperature range are so extreme that the graph margins have had to be moved. The Minimum temperature anomaly is also extraordinarily high, but this result is not so clearly linked to moisture.
Extreme moisture is usually associated with low maximum daily temperatures, in the “Flooding Rains” corner of the graphs, but this July the maximum temperature is not extreme, but normal.

Fully smoothed data – Gaussian smoothing with half-width 6 months – are plotted in red, partly smoothed data uncoloured, and raw data for the last data point in orange. January data points are marked by squares.
Blue diamonds and the dashed blue rectangle show the extreme values in the fully smoothed data record since September 1999.
