However, things will have to heat up quite a bit more if the all-time highest lowest night temperature since record began is to be matched. This record was set during the night of 18 June 2002 when temperatures never fell below 23.9°C.
Things were very different back in the summer 1940. On the night of June 25 1940 weather experts at the Ukkel Weather Centre recorded a highest night temperature of the year of just 15.8°C.
With temperatures expected to remain hot over the coming days it is quite possible that this year’s night temperature record will be broken again.
