A map overlay showing screen temperature in degrees centigrade for the UK.
Single tile map layer images are provided with three hourly intervals from T+0 to T+36. These are updated every 6 hours.
The screen temperature is the ambient temperature without the effect of wind chill or heat from the sun. This allows a consistent measure of temperature without localised effects.
The map layer is provided without a map, the boundary box for this image is 48° to 61° North and 12° West to 5° East.
The image layers are currently made available in a Mercator projection, it is the same projection used by Bing maps, OpenStreetMap, Google maps, MapQuest, Yahoo maps, and others.
Terms and conditions of use of this product are defined within the DataPoint terms and conditions page.
