Mountsorrel Central England Temperature Tracker

The Central England Temperature (C.E.T.) has been considered the most effective way of measuring how the UK's temperature averages over a long time. The C.E.T. is collected by Weather stations that are only located in the centre of England in an area bounded by London, Bristol, the wash and Manchester. Some of these weather stations have been reporting their temperature since 1659. The official CET figure is monitored and recorded by the UK Met Office, and a nominal past 30 year figure is used to suggest what the average Temperature should be in central England. Currently we are using averages from 1971 – 2000. I thought that it would be interesting to see how warm / cold the temperature in Mountsorrel compares to the official C.E.T. While it wont be as accurate as official CET, it should provide a good guide every month.

The figure updates every hour.  LastUpdate was: (19/01/2022 23:50 PM)
The current Mountsorrel C.E.T. tracker figure for January 2022 is: 4.5°C
(Difference from average January CET is 0.3°C)

UK Outlook for Tuesday 25 Jan 2022 to Thursday 3 Feb 2022: A largely cloudy start to this period for all, with perhaps some isolated fog forming under any clear skies in the south, otherwise largely dry and fine here. After a possibly brighter but colder start in the north, rain arrives across the northwest and is perhaps accompanied by some strong winds. Temperatures are likely to be close to average in the south, whereas milder in the north. Settled conditions looking to continue to dominate through the period, however, rain or showers at times for the north and northwest, with some stronger winds, mainly restricted to the far north, although possibly unsettled conditions sinking south at times. Heading into February, this settled theme is likely to remain, with drier than average conditions for most.
UK Outlook for Friday 4 Feb 2022 to Friday 18 Feb 2022: Early February is likely to see a continuation of a north/south split with more settled and cloudy weather expected in the south, and generally drier than average, while the north will be more changeable, milder, with some spells of rain. There is an increased likelihood of more unsettled conditions becoming established, with the northwest likely to be the wettest area, but showers or longer spells of rain may spread to most areas at times, with the southeast likely to be the driest. Spells of strong winds are likely to develop more widely at times. Temperatures likely to be near or slightly above average although short lived colder interludes are possible. Any snow likely to be restricted to high ground in the north.

Mountsorrel is a village in Leicestershire on the River Soar, just south of Loughborough with a population of 6,662 inhabitants. A castle was built in 1080 by Hugh Lupus, but there is evidence of an earlier Norman settlement in the area in the form of pottery fragments. A Roman villa is supposed to have existed on Broad Hill during the 4th century AD, the site of today's quarry, as quarrying during the late 1800s revealed many artefacts including a preserved wooden bucket. However, the first recording of the village was in 1377, when it had a population of 156.

The Mountsorrel Weather Station is located in Mountsorrel which is just South of Loughborough andjust North of Leicester, Leicestershire.
