Overnight minimum temperature records have been broken in both Northern Ireland and Scotland for November and it has been the warmest Armistice Day (11th November) on record.
🚩 Provisional new highest minimum temperature record for November in Ireland last night:
between 21:00 UTC and 09:00 UTC, the temperature at Shannon Airport, Co Clare didn’t fall below 15.5°C.
The previous record was 14.6°C.
Five other synoptic stations also broke the previous record.
Previously the highest overnight November minimums for Northern Ireland and Scotland were 13.9°C and 14.5°C respectively.
The Scottish one (from 2007 at Dyce) was just pipped with 14.6°C at Prestwick and Kinloss but the Northern Irish one (from Armagh in 1947) was truly beaten with 14.5°C.
🔥 By day, it has been the locations to the lee of high ground seeing temperatures into the high teens and managing to beat some of the daily records.
The daytime November monthly temperature records are 22.4°C in 2015 Ceredigion, Wales. 21.1°C from 1938 in a few spots for England, 20.6°C in Edinburgh in 1946 and 18.5°C in 2015 for Co. Down.
So not at those levels but easily beating Armistice Day records which were 17.8°C for England and Wales, 17.0°C for Scotland and 15.8°C for Northern Ireland.
A large high pressure over central Europe is steadying the weather and keeping the warm flow from NW Africa and the Canaries aimed at the UK.
The end of the month shows signs of cooling off and perhaps becoming colder than average, as forecast in advance by our Onda model.
