HadUKP Data

The links in this table take you to text files containing the daily, monthly and seasonal totals for each region. Please note that EWP monthly values start in 1766, the England and Wales sub-regions begin in 1873, and the Scotland and Northern Ireland monthly series begin in 1931. All of the daily series begin in 1931.

Please note, the last 6 months' values are subject to change as a result of quality control. Also please note that, in mid-2011, we re-calculated all daily and monthly UKP values from January 2006 to date using a more representative selection of stations, as described in this Climate Memorandum, to counter the effects of various station closures over the past several years and to take advantage of some new stations which are now available. In doing this, we took steps to ensure that this will not have affected the homogeneity of the series. The above Memorandum includes lists of all stations used.

A new homogenised set of UKP rainfall series has also been produced, derived using Met Office gridded data techniques. These are laid out as text files in a similar format to the data-sets linked in the table above. Downloads and further details, including the reference to a peer-reviewed paper, are available on this alternative web page.
