Select the information below to view UK maps of monthly, seasonal and annual averages. The analyses are based on 1 km grid-point data sets which are derived from station data covering the 30-year averaging periods, 1961–1990, 1971–2000 and 1981–2010.
Rainfall maps include all precipitation (rainfall, snow and hail).
Many of the maps for the period 1971–2000 are included in the Met Office Book of the British Weather, published by David and Charles.
The map for this combination is not available.
Maps of cooling degree days, heating degree days, growing degree days and growing season length are only available for the annual period.
1981–2010 maps of days of ground frost, days of sleet/snow falling, mean wind speed, and the annual variables listed above will be available later in 2012.
1981–2010 maps of days of thunder and days of hail are not available.
