A village in Aberdeenshire has recorded the highest and lowest temperatures in the country – on the same day. The mercury soared to 23.3C (73.9F) in Braemar yesterday, making it the hottest place in the UK. However the village also recorded the lowest temperature in the nation, dipping to -1.3C (29.6F) in the early hours of the morning. The high temperatures are unusual for this time of year, with late September averaging at around 13C (55.4F). Yesterday, Aberdeen reached 18.5C (65.3F), but Inverbervie only managed 11C (51.8F). A Met Office spokesman said the temperature spike was due to an area of high pressure over the country. Dry weather is expected to last into the weekend. Braemar is the third coldest low lying place in the UK, after the villages of Dalwhinnie and Leadhills, with an annual average temperature of 6.8 °C. Braemar has twice entered the UK Weather Records with the lowest ever UK temperature of -27.2oC, on 11 February 1895, and 10 January 1982. The village has an average of 102 days of air frost and 153 days with 1 mm or more of rainfall. Snowfall can be heavy in winter and early spring, and often accumulates to depths of 30 cm or more.
