UK climate stations

By searching for a location or selecting a climate station on the map above, you can view climate averages for the period 1981 to 2010. The averages are available across a range of parameters and in the following formats:

Averages table

The averages table shows the latest set of 30-year averages, covering the period 1981-2010, for the nearest / most similar climate station to your chosen location. The other tabs show averages tables for districts, regions and the UK, covering the periods 1961-1990, 1971-2000 and 1981-2010.

Averages graphs

The graph provides an alternative representation of the average data for your chosen location. By moving your mouse cursor over the graph you can see the average figures for your chosen climate variable for each month.

Location comparison

The comparison graphs enable you to compare the averages for two chosen locations. For example, you can see if one location is, on average, significantly warmer, drier, or sunnier than the other.

Averages maps

These maps enable you to view maps of monthly, seasonal and annual averages for the UK or your selected region. The analyses are based on 1 km grid-point data sets which are derived from station data. UK maps are available for the averaging periods 1961-1990, 1971-2000 and 1981-2010. Regional maps are only available for the period 1971-2000.
