United Kingdom breaks Easter records with 25C ‘heatwave’

Warming up for Easter Here comes the sun, and I say — it's all right

"We could still see more record-breaking temperatures tomorrow and on Easter Monday too".

Saturday is likely to be a day of nationwide summer temperatures, according to weather forecaster Weerplaza.

The UK is enjoying a sunny Easter Monday, with the dry, bright and warm conditions which have marked a glorious bank holiday weekend continuing.

Heading into the evening Mr Burkill predicted "there isn't going to be a huge amount of change, most places have a fine end to the day".

The countries' previous Easter Monday records were 21.4C at Culzean Castle on the Ayrshire coast in 2014, 23.2C in Nantmor, north Wales, in 1984, and 21.1C in County Fermanagh in 1984.

The highest temperature in Wales was 23.7C at Usk in Monmouthshire, less than 1C short of the record 24.4C enjoyed on Easter Saturday in 2011. Easter Sunday, we'll have a chilly morning but the afternoon will be spectacular.

It will still be quite warm in the sunshine, with a maximum temperature of 18 °C.

The weather experts have announced that three out of the four United Kingdom countries have seen their highest temperatures on record for an Easter Sunday so far.

This was still shy of the top Easter Sunday temperature from 2011 when the mercury reached 25.3C in the Solent.

While most of the United Kingdom was decked with sunshine, the Met Office said it would be cloudier, cooler and windier in the far northwest, with rain over north and northwest Scotland.

These beat the temperatures of 21.6C (71F) in Brynamman, Wales, in 1984, along with 20.7C (69F) in Aboyne, Scotland, in 2015, and 19.4C (67F) in Armagh in Northern Ireland dating back to 1924, which were the warmest Easter Sundays for those countries.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Brits have been treated to a scorching start to the Easter weekend and things will only get hotter if the latest odds are anything to go by".
