July 2020 – North Atlantic mean temperature anomalies

A cool July across most of the North Atlantic and northwest Europe come to that. Above average temperatures seem to have been pushed back to the continents of Africa, central Asia and North America. It may well be a sign of things to come in summer across Scotland as Arctic sea ice continues to shrink and the glaciers of Greenland continue to pour fresh melt water into the North Atlantic Ocean. Having said that the temperatures in the central Atlantic were much warmer last year so who the hell knows what’s’ going on.
I personally think we may see an early Autumn in the north of Scotland as the leaves are already starting to give up the ghost and start to fall, and I can assure you it isn’t because of an excess in summer heat or lack of rainfall!
