Weather east hotter than west

Why is the east consistently hotter than the west of the uk?
Temps today 22C in east, 17C in west massive difference.
Since I am in the east midlands, I am always in this heat cloud that covers the south east, but avoids the south west and west midlands.

Its the difference between the wet adiabatic lapse rate and the dry adiabatic lapse rate  Smiley
Our weather tends to come from the West, if it rains passing over hills then the air is warmer on the dry side that is the East  Smiley
