As at July 2006? That's not very up to date for an online encyclopaedia is it. Do these records still hold? Gmackematix (talk) 00:17, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

I've crawled through the Met office data, and bought it right up to date. I've also pulled the out-of-date tag. Number774 (talk) 14:20, 20 July 2017 (UTC)


I have read that an amateur meteorologist recorded an unofficial -29.2 deg. C. in Shropshire. Can't remember when - late seventies / early eighties I think. Mr Larrington (talk) 14:31, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Well an amateur meteorologist is not as professional as the Met Office. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 11:52, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Gibraltar, UK recorded 40.6 C, officially. Surely this counts?--Weathereditor (talk) 16:06, 4 June 2015 (UTC)


Does it never snow in the UK then?. I actually came here to look up the record snowfall. Surprised its not here. (talk) 18:37, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Be bold and add it. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 11:52, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

it does snow in the uk but not as much as amercia where i live the feb min is 1 C, but it hardly ever snows. we get loads of frost though. the met office snow page has records for snowfall in the uk but no mention of figures.--Weathereditor (talk) 16:00, 4 June 2015 (UTC)


How can the 120 minute record be higher than the 155 and 180 minute records? Tigerboy1966  10:19, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Highest 120-minute total 155 mm 11 June 1956 Hewenden Reservoir (West Yorkshire)

There are reservations about the listed value of 193 on the met office website, so that is why the other totals are lower, as not enough proof for the 155 and 180 has been provided. this is the nearest record and i agree that it should be this as you do but the page i cannot edit.--Weathereditor (talk) 16:04, 4 June 2015 (UTC)


Both this article and UK rainfall records are short. The more specific article can simply be merged into the United Kingdom weather records#Rainfall section. DrKiernan (talk) 11:08, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

do it then--Weathereditor (talk) 16:05, 4 June 2015 (UTC)


The sunshine min is 0.1 it would be impossible to have 0 hours of sunshine in a calendar month. --Weathereditor (talk) 15:56, 4 June 2015 (UTC)


I have a record high for UV but it keeps being removed every time I add it? --Weathereditor (talk) 15:57, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
