Last night was one of the warmest November nights on record and we've already had the UK's hottest November day ever - but how long will it last?

Temperatures in parts of the country hit 22.4C last week as the UK enjoyed unseasonably-warm weather.

And the good news is that it's due to last a bit longer, for this week at least.

The Met Office is forecasting “exceptionally mild” conditions all the way through until Saturday, with the maximum temperature reaching 17C today - a heat not out of place in August, let alone November.

Exceptional warmth in November in the UK is almost always imported - delivered from sub-tropical latitudes by a strong southwesterly or southerly wind.

Here’s your full look at a warm week ahead:

Today: It will be generally cloudy, breezy and exceptionally mild. A few limited bright intervals may occur, mainly this morning. This afternoon there is a chance of outbreaks of rain arriving. Maximum temperature: 17°C.

Tonight: Outbreaks of rain soon clearing to leave the rest of the night dry, with large amounts of cloud. However, some breaks may develop. Staying very mild. Minimum temperature: 13°C.

Wednesday: Mild, breezy again, generally dry and cloudy. However, some bright or sunny intervals may occur. Maximum temperature: 16°C.

Thursday to Saturday outlook: Thursday, dry and bright morning, then becoming windy, with rain arriving later. Friday, windy, with heavy showers, and feeling noticeably cooler than recently. Saturday, staying windy, but becoming milder.
