BRITS will see record temperatures for a SECOND day today – with parts of Britain to bask in 25C heat as the March heatwave continues.
It comes after Tuesday saw temperatures heat up to sweltering 24C, becoming officially the UK’s hottest March day in 50 years.
The record was set on March 29, 1968 when the mercury hit 25.6C in Mepal, Cambridgeshire.
Crows will once again flock to beaches to enjoy record-high March temperatures as Covid restrictions on outdoor gatherings were eased in England.
Temperatures increased by more than 20C in less than four hours, the Met Office said, as the UK entered a period of “exceptional warmth”.
The warmer and brighter weather coincided with the relaxing of England’s lockdown earlier this week, when the “stay home” order ended and groups of up to six people, or two households, were able to meet outside.
But by Easter weekend, cold air from the north may bring another dip in temperatures, with the Met Office forecasting showers spreading to most areas.
It said temperatures are likely to be around or below average for the time of the year, with a potential for widespread overnight frosts.
The coldest Easter weekend on record was in 2013 when minus 12.5C was recorded at Braemar in Aberdeenshire, on Easter Sunday.
