U.K. Climate Crisis: Country has recorded hottest December Day ever

Published on : Wednesday, January 1, 2020

The U.K. has recorded its hottest December day ever. The temperatures of 18.7C were recorded in Scotland over the weekend, the highest ever measured in the U.K. during the month of December.The Met Office said the recording taken from Achfary was “provisional” and still needs to be quality controlled. But if validated it will be “the highest temperature officially recorded in the UK during December”.



The previous record had stood since 1948, when a temperature of 18.3C was recorded in Achnashellach in Scotland, on 2 December.


This year has already seen the hottest winter day on record, when a temperature of 21.2C was taken at Kew Gardens in February. It also saw the hottest day on record in the UK, when 38.7C was registered at Cambridge University Botanic Gardens on 25 July.


The Met Office noted in its year in review that 2019 had seen record highs throughout the year, which is unusual. Mark McCarthy, head of the Met Office’s National Climate Information Centre said that 2019 will be remembered as an exceptional year for weather records, as it is unusual to get both the UK summer and winter high temperature records within the same calendar year.



But this continues a pattern of high-temperature records in the UK over the last few decades, as a result of their warming climate.
