United Kingdom Weather
At this time of year, the UK weather is too cold to offer travellers pleasant warm weather. Sometimes visitors are surprised that the temperature, humidity, wind speed and even the amount of snow on the ground do not vary much.
The best time to visit Britain is the spring weather in the UK, which is unpredictable, there is an increase in rainfall and a decrease in sunshine duration, as can be seen on the island of Glasgow. June is the coldest of the two summer months, however, and although the temperature is generally between 5 and 15 degrees Celsius this month, you should not be surprised if it gets warmer in summer if you want to head south. The sunniest months are June, July, August and September, which provide reliable weather for an outdoor holiday. Summer is often the best time to visit the UK, as it is a time of year when you can travel and visit well, especially in Scotland and Northern Ireland. However, summer is not always a good time to visit the UK.
The British winter is also usually very wet and windy, and although the British winter climate is still relatively temperate, it can feel colder than the temperature suggests when wet, so pack warm and waterproof (a light jacket is always useful). Overall, there is no real extreme weather, but a severe winter kick-back can occur and the weather in England is mild. The typical temperatures are between 5 and 20 degrees, the temperatures cool down significantly in the evening and during the day a hard cold front moves in with typical temperatures between -5 and -20 degrees.
Frost can occur anywhere in the UK, but is most common outside the coast and is adequately protected from south-westerly Atlantic winds by land to the east and west. The temperature difference between London and Edinburgh is often 4-5 degrees in summer, and further north in Manchester the temperature difference between summer and winter is 3-4 degrees. Temperatures range from 15C in the north of Scotland to around 10C in the south-west, although it can feel colder with the wind. Temperatures in Northern Ireland vary little, ranging from -15 to -20 degrees, with a significant difference from rainfall that causes the most extreme weather events such as floods and droughts.
If Wales experiences a wetter winter, it can expect more and more winter rainfall, which is currently falling as more intense storm events. BBC Weather also has a weather forecast for England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England, covering all the weather that people like to complain about on social media. Statsbase statistics and you can view hourly weather data up to 14 days in advance as well as hourly forecasts for the rest of the UK.
The average temperature is 0.5C above normal, which means wet places such as Wales and Northern Ireland are more likely to be wet than dry. Central estimates show that by 2080 summers, the central estimate shows an average annual rainfall of 1.5 inches (3.4 cm) in Wales, 2.2 inches in Northern Ireland and 1 inch in Scotland.
Coastal areas in south-west England have been milder this winter, with average highs of around 10C in March. These conditions are similar to those found throughout and around the UK, although the same regional differences are drier in eastern areas. Coastal areas were also milder, with temperatures tempered by relatively warm seas. Temperatures have continued to rise above normal in many parts of the North - the East and South West - and coastal regions of southern and western England are set for a mild winter.
By 2040, average summer temperatures in the UK will rise by 0.5-2 degrees Celsius (-0.1-3 degrees Fahrenheit) or more, depending on the region. By 2040, the average winter temperature in the UK is expected to have risen by 0.5 to 0.5 degrees by 2030. And 1degree (+ 2.6 - 4.2degree F) depending on the region.
Temperatures will fall below normal in many parts of Britain, particularly in the North - East and South West. Winds are light to moderate, with gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour, with gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour likely.
The North Atlantic Gulf Stream, which meets the West Coast, is responsible for milder-than-expected temperatures at these latitudes and for rain and weather unpredictability. This is because Britain is more influenced by the ocean than other European countries. The Gulf Stream helps keep Britain's winters mild compared to other landlocked countries at a similar latitude.
If you are looking for a very warm time to visit the UK, then the hottest months are July, August and then June. Summer is a popular time for London tourism because spring is the time of year when the rainfall is highest compared to other seasons in London. So if you're looking for warm temperatures and long days, the summer months may be the best time to visit the UK. Whatever the weather, you can still enjoy the vibrancy of history and attractions in London.
