The 2004–2008 subregions

For the purposes of the London
London
Plan, there has been a north London subregion in operation since 2004, originally consisting of Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest.[4] In 2001 this area had a population of 1,042,000.[5] This definition is used by organisations such as Connexions.[6] In 2008 it was amended to consists of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Westminster. In 2011 it was amended again to consist Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.

Climate[edit] North
North
London
London
has, like other parts of London
London
and the UK in general, a temperate maritime climate according to the Köppen climate classification system. Four Met Office weather stations currently collect climate data for London
London
north of the river: Hampstead, Heathrow, Northolt
Northolt
and St James's Park.[8] Long term climate observations dating back to 1910 are available for Hampstead, which also the most elevated Weather Station in the London
London
area, at 137m. This both hilltop and urban position means severe frosts are rare. As one might expect, temperatures increase towards the Thames, firstly because of the urban warming effect of the surrounding area, but secondly due to altitude decreasing towards the river, meaning some of the hillier northern margins of North
North
London
London
are often a degree or so cooler than those areas adjacent to the Thames. Occasionally snow can be seen to lie towards the Chilterns while central London
London
is snow-free. Typically the warmest day of the year at Hampstead
Hampstead
will average 29.3 °C (84.7 °F)[9] with around 14 days[10] in total achieving a value of 25.1 °C (77.2 °F) or higher. The average coldest night should fall to −5.6 °C (21.9 °F).[11] On average 35.8 nights[12] will report an air frost, some 119 days[13] of the year will register at least 1mm of precipitation, and on 7.4 days[14] a cover of snow will be observed. All annual averages refer to the observation period 1971–2000.
