All eyes on new october temperature records
New records were set on saturday.
Bramham now holds the Yorkshire October record, with 28.7C. Finningley recorded 30C, but the Met Office do not regard the airport as an official climate site anymore.
A new record was set in Lincolnshire on sunday, with 29.3C recorded at Coningsby.
The exceptional early autumn weather looks set to last into the weekend, with UK temperature records on the line.
According to the Met Office the current UK October record was set on the 1st of October 1985 in March, Cambridgeshire, where 29.4C (85F) was observed.
Closer to home, 1st October 1985 also saw a new record in Lincolnshire, with 28.4C (83F) at Cranwell.
In Yorkshire, the highest October temperature on record was set in Whitby on the 2nd October, 1908, with 28.3C (82F).
Tomorrow both Lincolnshire and Yorkshire could see new October records, with 29C (84F) possible in one or two spots.
Already at 2pm today, the mercury at Finningley in South Yorkshire has hit 29C, with very similar meteorological conditions expected tomorrow.
The Met Office estimate a 30% chance of 30C (86F) being recorded at one of their stations across Eastern or Southeastern England.
A fall in temperatures is expected across all areas early next week.
By the second half of next week, night-time temperatures could fall low enough for a touch of ground frost in some sheltered locations, as weather conditions return to normal for the time of the year.
