What’s happening to our climate?

A quick look at where the climate of the UK as a whole is going based on what’s happened during the last 30 years using a simple linear trend. If these trend were to continue for the next 30 years the UK would be sunnier by 108 hours annually, warmer by 0.54°C and wetter by 87 mm by the year 2050. Here’s a closer look at the decadal trends in mean temperature in each of the various regions across the UK since 1989. The only slight surprise to me is that northern Ireland and northwest England are lagging slightly behind other regions whilst at the same time the Midlands, eastern England and East Anglia have been out warming the southeast of England in recent years.
