Temperature forecast map layer
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.
