Mild November temperatures saw the UK experience its hottest armistice day on record.
The temperature reached nearly 20°C on Friday, almost two degrees higher than the previous record set 45 years ago.
Abnormally high temperatures for the season have led to “unusually mild” conditions across the UK, the Met Office said.
Warm conditions are expected to continue over the weekend.
The Met Office said Saturday would again be ‘unusually mild for the season’ while Remembrance Sunday will be ‘very mild’ across the UK with a possible high of 20C.
On Friday, Myerscough in Lancashire saw a high of 19.5C, while Lossiemouth in Scotland saw a high of 19.1C.
Magilligan in Northern Ireland hit a high of 17.4C and Hawarden in Wales hit 16.9C.
The Met Office tweeted: “Today the UK experienced the hottest Armistice Day on record, tentatively beating the previous record of 17.8 degrees Celsius set in 1954 and 1977.
“England, Scotland and Northern Ireland also set new provisional individual records.”
The weather service said warm air blowing in from the southwest led to mild conditions for the time of year.
