From the BBC

Provisional figures show that only 2006, with an average temperature of 9.73C (49.5F), was warmer than 2011’s average temperature of 9.62C (49.3F).

This year saw high temperatures for lengthy periods; including the warmest April and spring on record, the second warmest autumn and the warmest October day.

Early figures suggest 2011 is ending with a “close to average” December.
