Consistent warm spells.

10th consecutive day above 21c here. Dont think it happens that often, we always get a day with a sea breeze in good summer spells!

So far I've found found periods that 21c was exceeded each day for a aperiod of 10 days or more:

end of June/start of July 2009 (forgot how warm a spell we had then)
end of July to mid August 1995 (16 days).
start of June 2007 (most people probably forget we had a super start to summer that went down hill)
end of June/start of July 2006
another period later in July 2006 (18days)
August 2003 (15 days though it was nearly 18 days with 2 days reaching 20.8c)

I've highlighted the 3 longest periods I've found.
