Observed trends summary temperature graphs

This page presents some example line graphs summarising UK regional temperature trends from 1914 to 2006. They are useful for stimulating discussion around climate vulnerabilities, risks and potential adaptation options.

The graphs show annual, summer & winter changes for:

  • Daily mean temperature
  • Daily maximum temperature
  • Daily minimum temperature
  • Annual number of frost days (from 1962 onwards)

They are available to download in .jpg format - simply click on the relevant image below. Please note that any UKCP09 images used in presentations must be credited: © UK Climate Projections 2009

Graphs for other seasons and variables, and information on how these graphs were produced, is available from chapter 2 of the UKCP09 Observed Trends report.
