Record-breaking temperatures are making this fall a season to remember in some parts of Europe. Britain and Germany havenít been hit with such high heat in September for more than 100 years.
Temperatures were recorded well above average this week. On both Friday and Saturday, temperature records were smashed across Britain. In fact, Gravesend in southeast England climbed all the way to 29.6°C on Saturday, making it the country's warmest temperature ever recorded in October.
For those who like the heat, the good news is that temperatures should stay warm into the weekend. British meteorologists say that warm streak should stay with them until most of next week.
Locals and tourists are basking in the unusually warm temperatures.
Germany is enjoying a burst of heat, as well. Temperatures there have peaked at 18 degrees recently, and thatís unseasonably warm for this time of year there.
The warm temperatures come in good time, as Germany gears up for the annual tradition of Oktoberfest Ė a festival that celebrates drinking beer in Munich and other German cities.
