Easter Monday Could See Record-Breaking Temperatures
And the good weather looks set to stay, with the Met Office forecasting record-breaking highs of 25C or 26C for tomorrow - just pipping the current record of 24C set in 2011.
Marco Petagna, a Met Office meteorologist, told the Mirror: "We have got high pressure moving at the moment giving most of the UK a lot of fine weather.
"This combined with the fact that the high pressure has dominated for the past few days is allowing the temperatures to heat and build.
"It is allowing some record-breaking temperatures to be set and potentially on Monday as we are looking at a high of 25C or 26C."
Saturday was officially the hottest day of the year - with top temperatures of 25.5C in Gospot, Hampshire.
And today just narrowly missed out on being the hottest Easter Sunday in England's history, with temps of 25C in Sussex - not quite managing to hit the record of 25.3C. Still, we can hardly complain, can we?
Especially when you consider that Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all had record-breaking weather, with highs of 23C, 22.8C and 20.7C respectively.
BREAKING NEWS!!!! 3 out of the 4 UK nations have now reached their highest #temperature on record for #EasterSunday. Just England to go now, and we need to beat this one to see our UK warmest Easter Day... we'll update you later pic.twitter.com/HCD0osKanS- Met Office (@metoffice) April 21, 2019
Earlier this week, Met Office chief meteorologist Frank Saunders said that a lot of the UK was currently being blessed with 'higher than average temperatures'.
He also revealed a lovely long weekend was on the cards, adding: "It's going to feel warm or very warm across much of the country this Easter weekend.
"Temperatures will reach into the low 20s Celsius quite widely and there's a good chance some places particularly in the south could see temperatures peaking around 24 to 25 Celsius.
"With temperatures usually around 12 to 15 Celsius at this time of year, it's certainly going to be significantly warmer than average this Easter weekend and quite a contrast to the colder weather we've seen so far this month."
Of course, while for most of us it's nice to see the weather taking a turn for the better, for hay fever sufferers it can be a bloody nightmare.
The warmer weather has arrived at the same time that tree pollen season, meaning that parts of the UK have been whacked with high pollen counts.
The Met Office has also warned that UV levels are high, so don't forget to slather on some sun screen - your skin will thank you for it.
