United Kingdom experiences winter temperatures of more than 20C for first time”

Today is officially the hottest February day on record in Britain as the temperature reached 20.3C in Ceredigion, west Wales.

Meteorologists said it was the first time the temperature has exceeded 20C (68F) in winter.

Temperatures across Wales reached 18C (64.4F) in many places on Sunday, though it is unlikely to break the United Kingdom record for February, when the mercury soared to 19.7C (67.46F) in Greenwich in 1998.

Average temperatures for the month of February in the United Kingdom are around 8C, the Met Office has previously said.

A Met Office representative said that temperatures in Wales were affected by local geography, with southerly winds rising over the east of the Welsh mountains and warming while descending down the other side in west Wales.

It's reached 20.3 °C at Trawsgoed, Ceredigion making it the UK's warmest February day on record.

Temperatures across the United Kingdom were around 10°C higher than average for the time of year.

On Monday, temperatures reached 16C at Eglinton in Londonderry - the highest temperature recorded in Northern Ireland, so far, this year.

The warm spell is set to continue tomorrow and on Wednesday but it will become less mild and more unsettled from Thursday, with some heavy showers possible, the Met Office said.
