How will the UK’s Temperature Change Seasonally – Winter?


How will the UK’s Temperature Change Seasonally – December, January and February

  1. These 3 maps show projected December, January and February (DJF) temperatures in the 2030s, 60s and 90s (according to a high carbon dioxide emissions scenario, A2).
  2. All values are anomalies – the difference in temperature to the average of 1970 to 1999 temperatures.
  3. Areas shaded red will be 6-7°C hotter than average temperatures from 1970 to 1999, whereas areas shaded green will be the same as the 1970-1999 average.
  4. The number in the centre of each grid box is the average projected temperature; numbers in the upper and lower corners give the highest and lowest possible DJF mean temperature.
