This page presents line graphs summarising UK regional precipitation trends. They are useful for stimulating discussion around climate vulnerabilities, risks and potential adaptation options.

The graphs show annual, summer & winter changes for:

  • Total precipitation (from 1914 to 2006)
  • Days of rain (from 1961 to 2006)

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.
