    Very impressive spell- the temps were even more impressive than the 2012 spell in NW England by the looks of it. Looks like the spell didn't last as long as 2012 though.

    I always think that Manchester is favourably positioned in spring warm spells and often ranks highly in those sort of spells.

    Inland location and sheltered from the south east and east by the Pennines.

    Probably our best chance of being the warmest place in the UK on a given day is between late March and mid May.

    Yes a very warm spell.

    Doncaster is generally the warmest place in the North but if we were looking at highs in March they belong to two Yorkshire locations at Wakefield and Whitby on the same day in 1965 recording 25 deg on the 29th March 1965.I think both were helped by the Fohn effect but it amazing how Whitby could do that being on the coast against the cold North sea,and even more amazing it was the hottest day of the entire year in Whitby.

    I still think west of the Pennines is better in spring in general due to the higher likelihood of easterlies. Later on places like Doncaster do better I find.

    West Wales is also favoured at this time of year- places like Porthmadog and Aberystwyth and my money would be on places like that in spring rather than Yorkshire.

    I know Wakefield had the March record more than once I think but we haven't seen that sort of temperature in that area in spring in recent decades.

    Offshore breeze surely. That's what you'd expect from southerlies along the North Yorks coast. Ditto for easterlies and Aberystwyth.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
