We are now half way through 2009. As I suspected, this year looks to be a long, hot summer. May and June were slightly warmer than previous years, reversing the trend of the first four months of the year. Those two months were also drier than usual.

July started out hot and sunny, but most of last week was cloudy and cool. We even had several hours of light rain last Thursday.

The following table compares temperature and precipitation data in El Masnou for this year and the past five years (including this year.) Temperatures are in degrees Celsius (C) and precipitation in millimeters (mm). Each year and “Summary” row displays:

  1. average maximum temperature,
  2. average minimum temperature,
  3. average mean temperature,
  4. absolute maximum,
  5. absolute minimum temperatures
  6. average precipitation

for the given month. The “Extremes” row shows the highest and lowest temperatures recorded during the period 2004-2009.
