Record October heat for the U.K

Record October heat for the U.K

The United Kingdom rarely makes world news for record heat, but this weekend has changed that philosophy.

An all-time October record high of 29.9 degrees Celsius (85.8 degrees Fahrenheit) was set Oct. 1 in Gravesend, Kent. The previous record was 29.4 degrees Celsius (84.9 degrees Fahrenheit) set on Oct. 1, 1985 in March, Cambridgeshire.

The record heat was sparked by a high pressure system over Europe which brought persistent warm air to the U.K. from the south. However, changes are on the way.

A cold front will sweep over the region Monday into Tuesday which will erase the heat from west to east. The warmth will hang on across Wales and southern England on Monday before cooling down on Tuesday. (AccuWeather)

All kinds of chemtrail cloud formation in Singapore. Documentary on TV in around the Asia region were filled with chemtrail clouds in the background,be it in Thailand, Taiwan and China. Straight-lined trails, curly and cottonwool clouds. Planes were flying extremely high so that no one can hear them. so it sneak pass many ignorant sheep(humans). Fighters planes were involved and generally they can be heard.

And here in Croatia as well, people don't remember a few executive days in row with so high temperatures untipical for October. It's the warm front in Europe and it will last for 2 or 3 days before it hits cold front.
