Spring seems to have arrived a couple of weeks ahead of schedule, with the UK's highest temperature of the year so far recorded just outside Chester this morning.
After a cloudy but mild weekend, half-term week has begun with bright skies and unseasonably warm temperatures across the region.
That means we have already seen temperatures higher than the ones expected in Corfu (15ºC), Malta, Rome and Marrakesh (all 14ºC) today.
The warm weather in the UK is coming from a blast of hot air which has made its way over the Atlantic from a Caribbean heatwave.
It could push temperatures up to as high as 17ºC in other parts of the UK today.
The mild temperatures are due to hang around in the Chester area for a couple of days, with cloud, rain and winds moving in from Wednesday.
The Met Office said it will be 'very windy with wintry showers on Thursday', with Friday likely to be 'drier and more settled'.
So make the most of today while you can.
