Mr Bell said the higher than average temperatures were down to warm air coming in from the south. He said “The average temperature for this time of the year is usually 7-8C (45-46F) during the day
“The main reason for the higher temperatures is the position of having high pressure to our east and low pressure to the west, in terms of the UK. “This means it brings in southerly winds which bring up the warmer air. “This time of year you may get that for a few days but it is not that unusual.”
