The value was 18.3deg C, being well in excess of 2C anomaly on the all-series mean.The 'Great Storm' of 1703 which commenced on Friday 26th November (old-style, 7th December new-style) was probably the worst ever experienced in England; it is described by Defoe in his work: "The Storm 1703".

It was estimated that 8000 people lost their lives in the floods caused by the storm in the rivers Thames and Severn and in Holland.
