New record temperature for October in the UK

1 10 2011

The UK has a new record temperature for the month of October.

Provisionally, the highest temperature of the day was 29.9 °C, recorded at Gravesend in Kent.

This beats the previous record of 29.4 °C recorded at March in Cambridgeshire, which has stood since 1 October 1985.

Wales also has a new national record, 28.2 °C was recorded at Hawarden in Flintshire. The previous record was 26.4 °C recorded at Ruthin, Denbighshire, again on 1 October 1985.

These new records come at the end of an increasingly hot week across many parts of the UK and we may well see record breaking temperatures in some areas again on Sunday.
