Soak up the sun – it's here to stay

Relax those shoulders – spring is in the air and the sun is beaming.
Good weather is on the way this week and we will bask in temperatures slightly above average for the time of year, as a high pressure system takes hold over the country.
We won't fare quite as well as the UK – with temperatures soaring to 18C in London yesterday. However, the mercury is predicted to rise to a high of 14C during the week.
Thursday is expected to be the best day and temperatures are likely to consistently hit double figures during daylight hours.
Today promises to be dry with sunny spells and light, variable winds throughout most regions, with highest temperatures of 9c to 12C.
The clear skies may see some cold and frosty nights however, with sub-zero temperatures.
It will be mildest in the midlands and coolest in southern and easterly coastal regions – where there will be a risk of coastal fog at times.
However, a westerly airflow looks to be heading our way for the bank holiday weekend and it may literally rain on our parade.
But in the meantime, leave the brollies at home and soak up the rays.
