London’s mercury is often higher than other places in the country.

One can find in London almost half of the country’s top 50 warmest locations.

But the temperature is highest on the east coast, with Canterbury and Ashford in Kent taking the top two spots.

Boroughs Richmond, Wandsworth, Hammersmith, Kingston, Kensington and Chelsea and Merton are all in the top 10.

Forecasters say the capital and much of the southeast differ from the rest of the UK because they’re closer to Europe.

It’s also furthest from the path of most Atlantic low-pressure systems, which bring cooler temperatures, clouds and rain.

People living in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, as well as northern and southwest England, are much more likely to see that type of weather.

Scotland takes the crown for the coolest locations in the country.

Moray in the northeast is officially the coldest place in the UK, of all 363 places.

SCORCHING IN THE SOUTH

Perth and Kinross, Highland, Argyll and Bute, Stirling and Angus are also all much chillier than average.

The coldest place in England is Lancaster in the northwest, which notches up just 2.2 hours of real sunshine per day, according to the stats.

Sheffield also scores particularly badly for scorching days, with an average of just 2.75 hours of sun.
