Aberdeen expected to be one of hottest places in UK

Aberdeen expected to be one of the hottest places in UK.

A blast of Caribbean hot air could mean Aberdeen is warmer than Spain.

The Granite City is expected to be one of the hottest places in the UK on Monday.

Temperatures could be over that of Menorca, Majorca and Sardinia.

The cloud of hot air is making it way over the Atlantic Ocean from Florida and parts of the Caribbean.

It is expected to reach the UK over the weekend.

Aberdeen, Wattisham and London are tipped to be the locations with the highest temperatures, and the east coast is also likely to be warm.

Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon told the Press Association: “In terms of temperatures it is going to be around 16C to 17C (60F to 62F) and more broadly it will be mild across the east and north east of the country.

“Although obviously above average, it’s not necessarily unusual.

“In February 2012, around 50 stations recorded temperatures of 15C (59F) and over and we’re not expecting that many to record the same next week.”

Mr Claydon said the warm spell is expected to last into the middle of next week, before turning cooler into next weekend.
