Sunspots and Weather

Article metrics


I HAVE thought the following may be worth attention. Count the number of warm months, and the number of wet months, at Greenwich, in each year, since 1841 (i.e. months above average in either case). Select the values in each of the five-year groups having a sunspot maximum year central; and the same with minimum.
