Bristol basked in near record-breaking sunshine for March
BRISTOL basked in some of the hottest temperatures ever experienced in March in the city yesterday.
But the thermometer fell just shy of the record, which was set at Filton Airfield almost 50 years ago.
Every park in the city was crammed with sunseekers, and children gobbled down ice creams in the unseasonably warm weather.
Temperatures at Filton reached exactly 20°C at 3pm yesterday. But on March 29, 1965, the mercury hit 21.7°C. And at Long Ashton it reached 22.2°C on March 29 and 30, 1929.

Sun lovers should keep their sun cream out for today, but can pack it away tomorrow. Forecasters say this weekend things will cool down considerably, and by next week it is likely to be much cooler and cloudier.
The first few weeks of April will see things become much more unsettled and chilly than recently.
