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: (03/07/2022 23:50 PM)
The current Mountsorrel C.E.T. tracker figure for July 2022 is: 14.8°C

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday: Wednesday fine and dry with sunny spells and light winds. Increasingly drier and brighter through Thursday and Friday with long periods of warm pleasant sunshine in light winds.
UK Outlook for Friday 8 Jul 2022 to Sunday 17 Jul 2022: High pressure builds from the southwest on Friday, which will come to define this period. Southern and eastern parts can expect the best of any fine and dry weather, light winds, and very warm temperatures. Cloud increases further northwest, with pulses of drizzle or light rain, mostly confined to high ground. However, some heavier outbreaks can't be ruled out in the far northwest, with moderate or fresh winds in the far north, and near normal temperatures. Into next week, far northern parts will fringe the high pressure which begins to centre over the UK, seeing more changeable weather: frequent cloud, showers, and possibly longer spells of rain. Beneath the high, a more settled regime persists, though showers are possible. Temperatures near or above average, to hot in the south.

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.
