The UKCP18 Climate Projections provide probability ranges for future climate change. The figures shown in the 50th percentile column are the central estimates. Figures shown in the 10th and 90th percentile columns show the ‘very likely’ range of change. This means the change is very likely to be above the 10th percentile value and very likely be below the 90th percentile value.
