Temperatures have peaked at an unseasonably warm 19 degrees today as the UK enjoys a delayed start to autumn.

The warm October weather is part of a continuing pattern of mild temperatures which could make 2014 one of the hottest years on record, weather forecasters have predicted.

Today Mildenhall RAF base in Cambridge recorded a high of 19.2C, around six degrees warmer than average for October, while elsewhere in the UK temperatures were also at least three or four degrees higher than expected.

Tomorrow temperatures will be remain higher than average and could reach 20C in central England before they start to gently cool again.

Sally Webb, a forecaster for MeteoGroup, said: “It’s been a mild autumn day, about six degrees higher than average in central England and around three or four degrees warmer elsewhere in the UK.

“Tomorrow will be much the same again, if the sun is out there is the potential for it to creep up to 20 degrees in central England.

“The cold will start to move in over the next few days to western and northern parts which will bring temperatures down, especially in the north and Scotland which will feel much colder as temperatures drop down to about 10 degrees.

“The UK has been mild for much of the month and 2014 could turn out to be one of the hottest years on record. Temperatures have often been above the norm.

“It looks like it will also be fairly mild up until Christmas at the moment.”
