UK's warmest years are evidence of climate change

Joanne Parkinson

31st July 2019

The ten warmest years on record in the UK have all occurred within the last ten years.

The UK has experienced a 1 degree C increase in temperature, in line with Global change. This temperature increase has led to the clustering of the warmest years on record into the last ten years. In contrast, the coldest years on record occurred in the late 1800s/early 1900s. This pattern looks set to continue and the recent high temperatures suggest that 2019 will rival other warm years, with the UK's highest ever temperature recorded last week in Cambridge.
