Britain is on course for the warmest November since records began 353 years ago, according to forecasters, after a balmy 65F (18C ) weekend with some of the highest temperatures ever recorded just six weeks from Christmas...
....The Met Office said plenty more sunshine will follow early this week, with 15C highs until Wednesday in the south, with the north a few degrees cooler, still far above average for the time of year.
The average central England temperature for the first half of this November is 10.7C – almost 3C above average and comfortably clear of the overall November record of 10.1C set in 1994. Records began in 1659 and cover the area between London, Manchester and Bristol.
Government forecasters predicted mild weather would continue for the rest of the month.
The average temperature for the whole of November expected to remain well above average.
Even if an unexpected cold spell arrived, this month is expected to be at least the second warmest November in more than 350 years of records, as this month’s 10.6C is so far ahead of the second-warmest November on record, 1818’s 9.5C.
