Mean daily temperature

The 'mean daily temperature' is the average temperature in each 24 hour period, measured at 1.5 metres above ground level.

The UKCP09 projections provide information on the 30-year average of monthly, seasonal and mean daily temperature.

In detail

Mean daily temperature is one of the climate variables provided by UKCP09 over land areas, measured in degrees Celsius (°C). Maps showing projected changes in mean daily temperature are available in the Maps & key findings section for the whole of the UK, administrative regions and river basins.
