Britain To Bask In Sunshine With Highs Of 19C This Week
Many will have woken up this morning to blue skies and sunshine - and it's an outlook set to last through the week as Britain is set to bask in warm temperatures.
In news that's bound to be a bit bittersweet as the country practices self-isolation, temperatures could reach as high as 19 degrees in some parts of the UK tomorrow.
On Sunday, temperatures reached 14.3C in Porthmadog, Gwynedd, North Wales, while Monday and Tuesday could see temperatures soar even higher.
"Isolated locations could see temperatures as high as 16C today and tomorrow we will see 17 - 19C in places," Met Office representative Nicola Maxey told Tyla.
"Temperatures are expected to stay in the mid teens for many parts of the UK for the rest of this week before becoming colder by the weekend.
"As we head towards the end of the month temperatures will generally stay a few degrees either side of normal by day, but nights will continue cold with an ongoing frost risk."
So there you have it: we have a warm week ahead!
But while the temptation might be to flock to your nearest beach at the news of the first warm weather of the year, it's important to remember the guidelines around coronavirus.
At the time of publishing (23rd March), guidelines state you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors as long as you stay more than 2 metres from others as long as you aren't showing symptoms - so it's fine to head to your local park to enjoy the sunshine, just make sure you're keeping your distance.
Guidelines also state we should be avoiding large and small gatherings in public spaces as well as gatherings with friends and family, so don't be stupid and start organising a huge family BBQ, alright?
Set up your office in your garden, head out on your balcony or simply crack the windows - there are tons of ways to enjoy the good weather without putting everyone at risk.
