SUN-WORSHIPPERS have been advised to make the most of the warm weather before it turns cold again into the weekend.

Crowds enjoyed the temperate conditions at coastal resorts in the region yesterday as temperatures hit 17 degrees centigrade. But weather experts warn today will be the last of the sunshine for now.

Jim Bacon at Weatherquest said: “What we’ve seen is some very welcome spring-like weather with lots of sunshine and it will remain sunny most of Wednesday with maybe a bit more cloud. Thursday will see showery rain arrive in the early afternoon and it will turn cold into Friday.”

By the weekend, it is predicted to return to the cold conditions of earlier in the month with wind from the north-east causing temperatures to struggle to get beyond 10 degrees centigrade. April showers and the possibility of a night-time frost have been forecast for Saturday and Sunday.

Mr Bacon had further bad news for gardeners and farmers who are waiting for some relief from the chilly weather to help their plants and crops along.

He added: “Unfortunately, the ground hasn’t warmed up enough to make things happen at the moment - everything is a few weeks behind. Ideally, we would like to see a bit of rain to germinate the seeds and freshen the top soil, and a bit of warmth. We might get the moisture but not the warmth at present.”
