Met Office spokesman Clive Claydon added: “After quite a dull and chilly start to spring this is the first bout of real warm sunshine that we’ve seen.
“The sun at this time of year is nearly equally as strong as it can be in the summer so people just need to be cautious of that and make sure that they do look after themselves.”
The rest of the week is also expected to stay warm.
