The persistent wind and rain finally looks like coming to an end with a taste of summer on the horizon.
Model predictions have been toying with the idea of high pressure establishing itself over mainland Europe by the middle of the month with the UK seeing a plume of hot air all the way from Africa.
This could lead to some very hot temperatures for the time of year allowing the country to dry out as Brits soak up the sunshine and fire up the BBQ for the first time in 6 months.
Temperatures could peak at around 22c however should high pressure remain in charge the March record of 25.6c set back in 1968 could be reached.
As ever with long range model predictions confidence is low however it’s one we will be keeping a close eye on in the coming days.
