It Ain't Half Hot Mum! The hottest end to September in Britain since 1895


The Daily Mail reports:

Sun worshippers peeled off in parks and enjoyed surprise sorties to the seaside as yesterday became the hottest September 29 for more than 100 years.

The 84f (29c) temperatures seen in parts of the country trumped the Costa del Sol, Turkey and even Mexico.

And it smashed the previous record for a balmy September 29, when the mercury hit 81.5f (27.5c) in York in 1895.

Another good excuse to show a clip from It Ain’t Half Hot Mum. And I hope our non-UK readers are enjoying some great weather too.

And 1 October set a new record for the month as well, breaking the one set in 1985.

BTW November 1985 & February 1986 were both bone chillingly cold over most of the country. If the weather patterns repeat themselves, and we get similar conditions this year, it'll be very bad news for the coalition, given rocketing fuel prices.
