Monday saw one of the warmest November nights on record and we have already had the hottest November day ever record in the UK as parts of the country hit 22.4c last week...so will it last?
Well actually yes, for this week anyway.
The Met Office is forecasting “exceptionally mild” conditions this week all the way through until Saturday, with the maximum temperature reaching a very comfortable 17c today, Tuesday November 10, a heat not out of place in August let alone November.
Exceptional warmth in November in the UK is almost always imported - delivered from sub-tropical latitudes by a strong southwesterly or southerly wind.
Here’s your full look at a warm week ahead:
Today: It will be generally cloudy, breezy and exceptionally mild. This afternoon there is a chance of outbreaks of rain arriving. Maximum Temperature 18°C.
Tonight: There is a chance of outbreaks of rain initially though more persisten rain will arrive further north, becoming heavy at times over the Peak District. Minimum Temperature 12°C.
Wednesday: Mild, breezy again, with rain initially across the far north of the region gradually drifting south. Some areas will remain largely dry and cloudy. Maximum Temperature 16°C.
Outlook for Thursday to Saturday: Thursday dry and bright morning, then becoming windy, with rain arriving later. Friday windy, with heavy showers, and feeling noticeably cooler than recently. Saturday staying windy but becoming milder.
