Documented in warmMonth

#' Warmest month of the year
#'
#' @description Calculates the mean temperature of the warmest month of the year
#' @param mx vector of daily maximum temperature series.
#' @param dates vector of dates corresponding with daily temperature series
#' @param type type of output. It can be "temp" for temperature or "month" for the number of the warmest month.
#' @param ... any other argument. It is expected to be "na.rm" in case NA values are required to be removed.
#' @return Depending on argument type, the output will be a numeric value with the month (type = "month") or with temperature (type = "temp").
