February temperature record smashed again

For the second day in succession the record has been broken for top temperatures in February at the Ukkel Weather Centre in Brussels. The Royal Metrological Institute (KMI) reports that temperatures at Ukkel reached exactly 20°C at around 2:30pm on Tuesday afternoon. This is a full 1.2°C higher than the previous record of 18.8°C that was set on Monday.  

This is a full 1.2°C higher than the previous record of 18.8°C that was set on Monday. Tuesday top temperature record is the third February day record set in just 11 days.

 

The previous 26 February record dated from 1964 when temperatures reached 15.4°C. Monday’s month record had already been surpassed by 11am on Tuesday. The record for 27 February (17.3°C) also looks likely to be under threat with temperatures tomorrow also expected to reach 20°C.
