Hottest-ever February day may be recorded this week as Britain braces for balmy weekend

Temperatures will rise to near-record levels for February over the weekend as warm weather spreads across the UK, the Met Office has said.

The mercury could hit 18C this Saturday in some places, and most areas will see a lot of sunshine, forecasters say.

The warm, sunny weather will contrast with the same time last year, when Britain was braced for the arrival of the Beast from the East, which took hold at the start of March.

The warmest February since records began was in 1998, when temperatures reached 19.7C in Greenwich, south-east London.

UK experiences winter temperatures above 20C for first time

The UK is experiencing its warmest February day on record and some of the highest temperatures ever recorded in winter, according to forecasters.

Temperatures in Trawsgoed, Wales, reached 20.3C, (68.5F) on Monday morning and rose to 20.6C in the afternoon.

This time last year there was widespread snowfall across the country between late February and March and some areas of the country were hit by blizzards.

Bob Ward, of the centre for climate change economics and policy at the London School of Economics, said that while warmer temperatures are often welcomed, they can be deadly. “People may find it very pleasant to be in warmer temperatures but they must also remember that it’s the same trend that saw hundreds of people die last summer as a result of overheating.

“Over the last five years we also had two record wet winters during which there was severe flooding. This is a sign of the fundamental and profound way that Britain’s climate is changing.”

He said the weather change could also have disastrous consequences for wildlife. “If we have a cold [snap again] now there is a danger it will kill a lot of wildlife that has emerged early due to the spring-like temperatures.”

The spell of warm weather is expected to continue over the weekend, and bookmakers are offering odds of 5-2 that this summer will be the hottest on record.

UK experiences hottest winter day ever as 21.2C is recorded in London

The UK has experienced its warmest winter day on record, the Met Office has revealed.

Temperatures in Kew Gardens, south-west London, reached 21.2C (70.2F), breaking the record for the warmest February day. The Met Office defines winter from the beginning of December to the end of February, so Tuesday’s sunny spell is also a winter record.

Hot weather has driven hungry magpies to attack donkeys, sanctuary says

Hot weather has driven hungry magpies to attack donkeys in what is becoming a “critical” problem, a sanctuary has said.

Four elderly donkeys at Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary in Huttoft, Lincolnshire, are being “picked on” by “flesh-eating” magpies that are inflicting wounds the size of £2 coins onto the animals.

Snow and 'severe gales' to pummel Britain as Met Office issues multiple warnings
'There is a risk of further snow overnight - it is likely to be very, very cold,'

The UK will be hit with severe gales, snow showers and frost in the coming week, as unsettled conditions continue.

A variety of weather warnings for wind, snow and ice have been issued from Sunday to Wednesday by forecasters.

"An area of low pressure is moving very quickly across the south this morning bringing gale force winds with it," Sarah Kent, a meteorologist at the Met Office, told The Independent.

"There's a yellow warning in place for wind for Sunday. It will be extremely gusty and people should keep an eye on the warnings as they change."

Wind speeds are expected to reach 40 to 50mph inland and could rise to 55 to 65mph in more exposed areas.

UK weather: Temperatures plummet and snow falls overnight in a wintry start to spring

Spring may have officially begun, but some parts of the country woke up to a wintry outlook as snow and sleet fell overnight.

Temperatures dipped to freezing overnight and snow covered high ground in Scotland and northern England. Flurries were also seen down into the Midlands during the early hours.

There will be sunshine and some rain for the southern and western parts, although showers are forecast to be heavy with hail and thunder mixed in.

Temperatures will remain on the cold side, with around 5C or 6C the maximum for many and 10C expected in the south-east.

The outlook for Thursday remains the same, but the focus of the showers will be in the south-west of the UK.

UK weather: Thunderstorms could hit Britain after Easter weekend of record-breaking temperatures

Thunderstorms could hit Britain after an Easter weekend of record-breaking temperatures.

Thousands of holidaymakers are descending on parks and beaches this weekend to enjoy the sunshine, with highs of 24C making Saturday the hottest day of the year so far.

And tomorrow is predicted to be the hottest Easter Sunday in 178 years as a "Greek plume" sweeps the country.

But stormy conditions are predicted to begin from Tuesday, threatening floods, as temperatures dwindle.
