Previous records has occurred only during past 10 years – on30. August 2018 was measured +6,4°C and on 30. August 2011 +6,6°C.
A fact, that all 3 coldest years within last 80 years has occurred during last decade could be linked with Arctic Amplification and Atmospheric blocking linked with climate change. Arctic air during these situations flows more southward such as in the past, in contrary with overall global warming trend. While over Arctic is extremely hot, cold Arctic air floods moderate climate zones with similarly temperature extremes such as in Brest, 30. August 2020.
