Brits set to bask in sunshine as week gets off to balmy start

Lockdown weary Brits will bask in 14C sunshine today as a wave of pleasant weather continues to sweep across the UK.

Crowds flocked to parks yesterday to enjoy similar temperatures as sunny spells marked the official start of Spring.

People made the most of the brighter weather despite the UK being forecast an 'Arctic Dome' that was meant to hit the country over the weekend.

Locked-down Brits have already endured a miserably cold winter of ice and snow – which meant even more time inside and ruined planned exercise walks.

But now the forecast seems to be looking up as the public was seen to be enjoying the Spring Equinox, the first day of the season.

However, some areas experienced cloud in parts over the weekend with a few light showers too, according to the Met Office.

There is more dry and sunny weather is expected over the Easter weekend – and Brits will be able to meet outdoors in groups of six by then too.

Temperatures could be around the 12C mark, about average for the time of year and conditions will remain dry, according to the long-range forecast from the Met Office.
