Britain set to be hotter than the Middle East in 160 years

Published on : Monday, February 20, 2017

BritainFebruary 20th is set to be the hottest in 160 years for Britain, with the advent of spring.

 

Temperatures are expected to reach 16°C which will be hotter than Greece, Dubai and Saudi Arabia at this time and the hottest since February 20, 1857.

 

It comes after many enjoyed unseasonably warm temperatures during the week, with people even seen sunbathing in Britain’s parks.

 

A southwesterly airflow will bring a warm front down from the Caribbean, though cloud cover will stop the weather feeling too unreasonable.

 

The Met Office said that the cloud of hot air is making its way over the Atlantic Ocean from Florida and parts of the Caribbean, and is expected to reach the British Isles over the weekend.

 

Aberdeen, Wattisham and London are all tipped as likely locations for the highest temperatures, with the east of the country broadly enjoying the best of the warmth.

 

The rise could make the UK among the hottest locations in Europe, following bouts of snow and freezing temperatures that took hold earlier this month.
