Hi Open

I too have been keeping an eye on the temperatures around Siberia / Northern Russia where there have been unprecedented highs and generally abnormal  climatic conditions. It seems the very north of the planet is seeing some of the most rapid warming.

Looking back through historical weather data for the region where i live (southern France), the first 5 months of 2020 have been the warmest in terms of average temperatures and even quite a bit warmer compared to 2019, averaging 2 degrees celcius higher.   If that trend continues, i'll need to get a cooler shirt!

Warmly
