Well, it seems like it might not be just a one-off as the warm weather is apparently here to stay and temperatures are set to rise further.

Weather experts think temperatures could peak at around 20C, much higher than the 7C averages for this time of the year.

We can expect to enjoy "lots of sunshine and warmth", says the Met Office, adding that it will feel like spring from Friday.

The record for the hottest day for February on record currently stands at 19.7C, which was more than 30 years ago in 1988.
