From Met Office

Analysing the highest maximum temperatures in the Met Office electronic monthly database with a historic county of Cumbria gives a previous high of 16.0 deg C at Keswick on 13th February 2008, next highest in Cumbria was 15.9 deg C on 15th February 1998.



Not all the records in our archive have been digitised, so it’s possible something higher may exist in the paper records.



This is certainly an exceptional warm spell for February, the highest I have seen for Cumbria is 19.4 deg C at Keswick on 26th (next highest: Levens Hall recorded 19.3 deg C on 26thand Bewcastle 18.9 deg C on 26th).

...

I will update list with above details. Plus records from all stations when data sheets come through next week or so.
