Record breaking temperatures have hit the UK on Tuesday, with Porthmadog in Gwynedd, West Wales, seeing the mercury hit 20.8c beating yesterday’s record breaker of 20.6c in Trawsgoed, Ceridigion.

Londoners in Teddington and Northolt saw the mercury hit as high as 20.7c, beating yesterday’s temperature of 19c.

Met Office meteorologist Sophie Yeomans said: “Temperatures hit 20.7C in parts of London and North Wales, with the next warmest places in the 19Cs, but everywhere has been very warm.

“It’s still going to be warm tomorrow, much warmer than the average of 8C for this time of year, with temperatures around 17 or 18C and still nice and sunny.

“Parts of the south coast might have some fog during the day, with temperatures around 15C.

“On the whole it’ll be another dry and sunny picture.

“Thursday is when we’ll get the heavy showers and cloud, with a similar picture on Friday.

“It’ll be wet and windy into the weekend, so Wednesday is the last day it will be bright.”

Meanwhile, holiday makers in Crete are suffering heavy rainfall, with 344mm of rainfall this morning and a possible further 50mm of rain by the end of the day.
