For the most part, the month just gone was particularly pleasant, finishing up the 7th warmest on the CET record. However, this is not maybe as eventful as it sounds, given that September 1729, 1795 and 1865 were warmer.

There were a couple of hot days, the 7th and 8th, when CET maximums  reached 28.3 and 28.2C respectively. However these temperatures were well below the 31.0 and 31.3C set on successive days in 1906:

The main reason for the high monthly average was the lack of any days colder than average until the last week.

In short, weather.
