Surrey was the warmest place in the UK on hottest Easter Monday on record

Surrey was the warmest place in the UK on hottest Easter Monday on record

Published by Lucinda Horsley at 7:27pm 22nd April 2019. (Updated at 9:05pm 22nd April 2019)

All four UK nations have recorded their warmest Easter Monday of all-time, with temperatures peaking in Surrey. 

The Met Office reported glorious highs of 25C (77F) at Heathrow, Northolt in west London, and Wisley in Surrey.

Scotland saw highs of 23.6C (74.5F), it was 23.5C (74.3F) in Wales and 21.4C (70.5F) in Northern Ireland.

The previous record high for an Easter Monday was 24C in the Solent in 2011.

It follows Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland enjoying their warmest Easter Sunday on record.

But as a return to work beckons, those hoping they might be able to consign their coats to the wardrobe for a few months look set to be disappointed.

While many parts of the UK will see the fine weather continue into the evening on Monday, the odd sharp shower may develop in the South West later.

Tuesday will see more showers in the West and South West and thundery showers will then move northwards including colder conditions, according to the Met Office forecast.

The Met Office outlook for Surrey & Hampshire this week:

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry this evening with clear skies. Remaining dry overnight with lengthy clear periods. Winds will fall light and it may become chilly in sheltered rural areas. Minimum temperature .


Warm inland with lengthy spells of sunshine. Noticeably cooler along eastern coasts with a brisk breeze from the sea. Dry but gradually becoming cloudier overnight. Maximum temperature 23°.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Cloudy Wednesday with risk of showers at first, possibly heavy and thundery. Brighter later. Cooler and more unsettled on Thursday and Friday with showers and strengthening winds.

Christopher England, Sky's weather producer, said:

"Tuesday looks fine for most, but heavy, potentially thundery showers moving up from France will spread to many parts on Wednesday

"For the moment, it will be mainly fine on Monday evening, but a light shower is possible in the South, where it will be cloudier.

"Ireland, Northern Ireland and western Britain can expect the odd shower tonight, with the South West most at risk, although most places will stay dry.

"There may be the odd rumble of thunder."
