Mild nights on the way

Have your say

Monday saw one of the warmest November nights on record and we have already had the hottest November day ever record in the UK as parts of the country hit 22.4c last will it last?

Well actually yes, for this week anyway.

The Met Office is forecasting ‘exceptionally mild’ conditions this week all the way through until Saturday, with the maximum temperature reaching a very comfortable 14c in the Portsmouth area today. Exceptional warmth in November in the UK is almost always imported - delivered from sub-tropical latitudes by a strong southwesterly or southerly wind.

Here’s your full look at a warm week ahead, courtesy of the Met Office:

Today will be generally cloudy, breezy and exceptionally mild. Outbreaks of rain will spread east through the day, with a chance of some heavy bursts of rain occurring, especially this afternoon. Maximum Temperature 16°C.


Outbreaks of rain, perhaps locally heavy, soon clearing to leave the rest of the night dry with large amounts of cloud. However, some breaks may develop. Staying very mild. Minimum Temperature 11°C.


Mild, breezy, generally dry and cloudy. Some bright or sunny intervals may occur inland, while along the south coast and over the Isle of Wight patchy drizzle may develop. Maximum Temperature 16°C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Thursday dry and bright morning, then becoming windy, with rain arriving later. Friday windy, with heavy showers, and feeling noticeably cooler than recently. Saturday staying windy but becoming milder.
