WALES has enjoyed it’s hottest Easter Sunday and Monday on record as temperatures soared up to 24 degrees over the Bank Holiday weekend.

While temperatures in the country couldn’t quite beat the records for Good Friday and Holy Saturday, national highs of over 23C made it the hottest Easter Sunday and Monday since records began.

Cardiff holds the new Easter Sunday temperature record after the City enjoyed highs of 23.4C, smashing the previous national best for that day of 21.6C.

Wales continued to bask in glorious weather over Easter Monday too, giving the country an unusually glorious Bank Holiday Monday.

The North East Wales region enjoyed highs of 24C on Good Friday, making it the warmest day of the weekend, but not quite up to the national record of 25.6C.
