UK’s November temperature record has been broken in mid-Wales on Sunday afternoon with 22.4°C.
The temperature was measured in Trawsgoed, Ceredigion, on Sunday afternoon.
The previous record was also recorded in Wales. Temperatures reached 21.7° C (71.1F) in Prestatyn in 1946.
The average UK temperature for November was between 10°C (50F) in the North and 15°C (59F) in the South, with Wales average reaching about 12° C (53.6F), metereologist added.
The record temperature had been caused by the type of air currently being experienced, with “mild southerlies and lots of humid air”, weather forecaster said.
Although fog brought temperatures down in many areas on Sunday, places which were free of fog had high temperatures. Some flights departing from Heathrow had to be cancelled because of the fog.
A yellow warning was issued by the Met Office for fog mainly in England and in some other parts of Eastern Wales from Sunday evening until Monday at noon.
