This is already THE SUNNIEST FEBRUARY ON RECORD - and it isn't over yet. By the end of yesterday, the average sunshine count in England and Wales had hit 121 hours, beating 1949's record of 118. Southampton has scored most highly, with 150.3 hours so far, closing in on the record of 166 hours set in 1891, in St Helier, Jersey. It may also be the driest February for a decade depending on rainfall in the next few days. "It is VERY UNUSUAL for February and by the 20th of the month we had already experienced the fourth sunniest February on record."
