Weather forecast in United Kingdom

United Kingdom longterm forecast

England has warmer maximum and minimum temperatures throughout the year than the other areas of the UK, though Wales has milder minimums from November to February, and Northern Ireland has warmer maximums from December to February. England is also sunnier throughout the year, but unlike Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, the sunniest month is July, totaling 192.8 hours. It rains on fewer days in every month throughout the year than the rest of the UK, and rainfall totals are less in every month, with the driest month of July averaging 54.1 mm (2.13 in). The climate of south-west England experiences a seasonal temperature variation, although it is less extreme than most of the United Kingdom

January

January is predominantly a cold month with little sunshine. Snow is possible throughout the month as are hard frosts. It is also often a stormy month, with rainfall likely to occur. However, on occasions some potent depressions may move in from the north in the form of 'Polar Lows', introducing heavy snow and often blizzard-like conditions to parts of the United Kingdom, particularly Scotland. During periods of light winds and high pressure frost and fog can also become a problem.

February

This month is towards the end of Winter - however this can chiefly have some of the coldest temperatures over the whole season. The longer days bring very cold weather with overnight frosts. Bright and sunny days can also be possible, due to the frosts. Snow is also possible and many winters have experienced their heaviest snowfall in February.

March

This is the first month of Spring and although there is usually still a raw edge to the weather - sunny days in March can often be pleasantly warm. There is still a fair chance of snow earlier in the season when temperatures are colder. There is also a small chance that stormy weather can occur as the saying goes "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb".

April

Spring is often well underway in April. In recent years, there have been long, warm and sunny days throughout the month. It is often settled and the old adage of April showers' is not often true to its worth. There is still a chance of snow in April - but it will be unlikely to last for long. Temperatures in the settled weather can sometimes reach the high teens or even early 20's.

May

May is another often calm and dry month, as the sun rises higher in the sky and the days get longer, temperatures can rise relatively high; thunderstorms and heavy showers can develop occasionally. May has often been known to have minor heatwaves - reaching the high 20's. Other years though, can sometimes produce very cool and wet weather. There may be still Wintry weather around in the early parts of May in the Scottish Highlands.

June

June is the start of summer and has the longest days in the whole year. June can often be a dry and warm month - even hot - but heavy rainfall and thunderstorms can occur. Cool weather is also possible. Temperatures can vary from early teens to bordering on 30C.

July

July can often be a dry month, but rainfall totals can have a wide local variation due to localised thunderstorms. These thunderstorms mainly occur in southern, eastern, and central England and are less frequent and severe in the north and west. July often sees high pressure systems dominate - with potential heatwaves possible.

August

By August the days become noticeably shorter and is towards the end of summer, however this month can still potentially be the hottest month of the year. August will mostly continue in the same pattern as July, as it can still potentially be a hot month, with rainfall never too far away. This is the last month of summer and the evenings can potentially be rather warm and mild.

September

This is the first autumnal month, and the start of September can often be a continuation of summer - as is the case of recent years - this is called an Indian Summer'. Temperatures by night can be very mild and rarely fall below 10 C. Such events are aided by the surrounding Atlantic Ocean and seas being at their warmest, keeping the country in warm air. Although changeable the weather is often surprisingly good, but westerly gales can often be a feature of the month.

October

By October, there is usually a distinct chill in the air and many regions will have experienced their first frosty nights. This is generally an unsettled month with infrequent settled periods. Autumnal storms are likely and this can bring very wet and stormy weather with localised flooding in places. October can sometimes experience a small continuation of Summer, with temperatures reaching the 20's, on the other hand, mountainous areas of Scotland and Northern England may see a return in Wintry weather.

November

November is often a very unsettled month with Atlantic depressions during this time becoming intense and winds of hurricane force can be recorded. Western areas, being closest to the Atlantic, experience these severe conditions to a significantly greater extent than eastern areas. As such, November is often the stormiest time of year. Novembers since 2000 have been very mild with notable extremes of precipitation. Although the weather is rather unpredictable, it is not unusual for many parts to experience a brief cold snap in November.

December

December is the first month of winter and has the shortest days of the whole year. The month can often experience very cold, bright and settled weather - with severe overnight frosts. This early part of winter can also sometimes be unsettled and stormy. Temperatures can typically reach sub zero throughout the month. Heavy snowfall and other wintry weather is very likely, especially towards the end of the month.
