Coldest winter ever in UKEaster Sunday has been confirmed as the coldest Easter day on record, with the lowest temperature recorded as -12.5C in Braemar, in the Scottish Highlands .

The previous coldest Easter day since modern records began in 1960 was Easter Monday in 1986, which dipped to -9.8C, the Met Office said. Average temperatures for this time of year are between 10C and 13C.The prolonged cold spell covering the UK could last until mid-April, forecasters say.


Easter Monday is expected to remain very cold.

Easter itself is a moveable celebration which falls on the Sunday after the spring full moon, and can fall anywhere between 22 March and 25 April.

Only about 22% of Easters fall in March, a Met Office spokesman said. The Easter record comes after the entire month of March was provisionally declared the coldest since 1962 in the UK.

TVNL Comment.  -12.5C converts to 9.5F.  Climate change causes extremes in both cold and warm temperatures.  Wake up, folks.
