The climate in United Kingdom
The UK has substantial variations in climate. Northern Ireland, Scotland and North- East England are often affected by relatively cooler air flows, with summer temperatures frequently not getting much higher than 19 degrees while in Wales and southern parts of England it is relatively warmer. Greater London has the hottest summers with an average maximum temperature of 23 degrees.
The ocean’s influence on the climate is particularly evident in the distribution of precipitation: the Highlands of Scotland, Wales and the west coast of England are wetter with on average more than 200 rain days annually, sometimes reaching more than 250 days, while eastern England on average has only 150 days with rain. The mild winters in south west England contrast greatly with the Scottish Highlands with their winter ski resorts.
