Met Office State of the UK Climate report 2016

Post by ALEO Admin » Thu Jul 27, 2017 12:13 pm

The Met Office 3rd annual State of the UK Climate report, released on 27 July 2017, shows 2016 was the 13th warmest year since records began, in 1910.

Winter 2016 was the second-wettest winter on record for the UK in records dating back to 1910, with winter 2014 wettest. In contrast, the second half of the year was notably dry, particularly in the south.

Mark McCarthy, Head of the Met Office’s National Climate Information Centre, said: “Although 2016 may not be regarded as remarkable for temperature, it does feature within a notable decade for temperature records. The trend towards warmer temperatures is clear, but of course natural variation in our climate will always mean that increases are not always even year on year.”
