This article covers the latest State of the UK Climate report by the Met Office, which analyses the weather and climate of 2022 and its implications for the UK’s changing climate. The report reveals that the UK’s climate has become warmer, wetter, and sunnier and that temperature extremes are changing much faster than average. The report also suggests that the record warm year of 2022 and the July 2022 heatwave were much more likely due to human-induced climate change. By using Met Office UKCP18 climate projections, the report shows that even under a medium emissions scenario, a year like 2022 could become the norm by the middle of the century and relatively cool by the end of the century.
