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: (17/01/2020 23:50 PM)
The current Mountsorrel C.E.T. tracker figure for January 2020 is: 7.6°C

UK Outlook for Thursday 23 Jan 2020 to Saturday 1 Feb 2020: Into the weekend it is expected to be largely dry and settled with bright spells and light winds, although staying cloudy for most. This will continue for the south further into the following week, whilst the north could be wetter and windier at times. Later on in this period, some rain may briefly spread further southeast across the UK, although the most unsettled weather is likely to remain in the north and northwest, where some hill snow is possible. Further southeast drier spells will be accompanied by the best of any brightness, along with the greatest risk of fog and frost. Temperatures will generally be near average, although a little below at times in the north.
UK Outlook for Sunday 2 Feb 2020 to Sunday 16 Feb 2020: Through the first half of February, we are likely to see a north/south split continuing; with the north being more unsettled than the south. The heaviest of the rainfall and strongest winds are likely to be seen across the northwest. The south is more likely to see drier, brighter conditions with light winds. There is potentially a greater risk of frost and fog patches developing towards the south. During colder, showery interludes, any snow will most likely be over higher ground in the north, but it could fall to lower levels at times. Temperatures will remain close to or above average through the period, though will likely fluctuate as frontal systems pass through, especially 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.
