Britain was treated to an early taste of the summer weather, as temperatures rose and soared yesterday making April 6th the warmest day of 2011 so far. The highest temperatures recorded were 22°C – which is almost double the usual expected average for early April.
Many Brits, enjoyed a day of sunshine and took to the country’s bustling parks and open spaces as pictured opposite to enjoy what was a big difference from the 15°C experienced on the same day last year and an even bigger increase on the usual average April temperature of 12°C. Temperatures in the United Kingdom were higher than those in the much hotter areas of the Mediterranean which boasts cities such as Barcelona and Athens.
Forecasters have said that we can expect a hot weekend, as warm currents come in from France and Spain. Despite this however, temperatures will dip slightly as we approach next weekend and the London Marathon – much to the relief of those taking part in the weekend’s proceedings.
