It’s official- this Spring has been one of the warmest since records began.
Statistics released by the Met Office show that it is the third warmest Spring since 1910 with an average temperature of nearly 9°C recorded between March and May.
The Met Office said the figures are based on temperatures up until May 28 and assumes average conditions to the end of the month.
It was beaten only by 2007 with 9.05°C and 2011 with 9.15°C.
The trend continues a six-month run of above average temperatures throughout the UK, with all months from December through to April at least 1°C warmer than the long term average.
In the past month Cornwall has seen a mix of warm sunshine and torrential rain.
The Exeter-based meteorologists said despite the rise in temperature the overall statistics for May show it has been duller and wetter, with sunshine down compared with the average for this time of year.
Overall rainfall for Spring is 7% higher than average.
