Weather experts in Sheffield say last month was the sunniest November since 2006.
Museums Sheffield’s curator of natural sciences, Alistair McLean compiles data from Weston Park weather station every month.
He said there were 82.7 hours of sunshine last month – the average November in the city only has around 53 hours of sun.
But Mr McLean said last month lagged behind November 2006 when there were 107.3 hours of sunshine.
The average temperature for November 2013 was 6.5C – exactly the same as November 2012.
The coldest November temperature he has recorded was -7.2C in 2010.
