  • This dataset contains a long time series of temperature for central England. Monthly mean temperatures are available from January 1659, and daily mean temperatures begin in January 1772. Both daily and monthly means are available into 1999. There are two time series of monthly temperatures: one from the U.K. Meteorological Office and one from Phil Jones at the University of East Anglia. The two series are not identical, but there are only a few significant differences, apparently due to errors in one of the series, but which one is not known.
