Weather Map

2014 was the UK’s warmest year since records began in 1910, as well as being the warmest year in the Central England Temperature series, which dates back to 1659, the Met Office has announced.

The UK’s mean temperature for the year was 9.9C, which is 0.2 degrees higher than the previous record set in 2006. However, no individual month saw a record high temperature; instead each month was consistently warm. According to the Met Office, in August, temperatures were below average.

The records indicate that eight of the UK’s top ten warmest years have occurred since 2002, with 2014 also being the UK’s fourth wettest year, with 1,297.1 millimetres of rainfall. Five of the UK’s top six wettest years have occurred since 2000, which highlights the underlying global warming trend.
