The weather has cast a spell on the warmest Halloween on record

It's almost frightening just how warm it is outside this Halloween. Midday temperatures across East Anglia have widely reached 18 to 20°C and Santon Downham has seen the mercury climb to 21°C. This is higher than the previous UK Halloween record of 20°C held by Dartford since 1968.

However, it's Charlwood in Surrey that is the UK's warmest so far with a bloodcurdling midday temperature of 22.5°C. There were several days in August in which nowhere in the UK was as warm as this.

The warmth can't last forever, the weather will become significantly cooler during the next few days.
