Records are provided as follows:
For temperature by country, by month and by district for the following:
For sunshine hours by country, for highest monthly sunshine records
For gust speed by country and district (for sites below 250m), for highest gust speed
Records can be viewed for the different parameters by selecting the appropriate tab on the UK climate weather extremes page
