Warm and sunny weekend could see record temperature for February

A spell of warm weather this weekend is set to bring temperatures in the UK close to the record for February, according to the Met Office.

A large area of high pressure centred over continental Europe is predicted to move across the UK, bringing settled, dry and sunny weather to many. Temperatures of up to to 17C are possible in parts of the country.

The current record maximum temperature measured in the UK in February is 19.7C which was set in London on February 13 1998.

But despite the unusually high temperatures, the South East of England could see some frost over the weekend.

Everywhere is going to be having a mild weekend, although you might get some light frost in the South East where the skies are clear.
