Saturday was a stellar day across much of the U.K. Temperatures soared to near 20C near London. And, Sunday could prove slightly warmer.

Following months of stormy weather, high pressure brought this stretch of unseasonable warmth and plenty of sunshine to the United Kingdom, Ireland and western Europe.

A wet February for much of the U.K. came on the heels of record-setting rainfall earlier this winter. In the U.K., December and January were the wettest on record.
