Thousands of Brits have been overheard reminiscing about the “good old days” of bitterly cold conditions today as temperatures soared to their highest level of the year.
Just weeks after the Beast from the East blew out feelings of nostalgia were reported across the country, with temperatures reaching a barmy 27 degrees Celsius in some places.
According to nat-rep data, 23 degrees is the threshold between “hot” and “too hot”.
Weather forecaster James McGail said: “Africa has now replaced Siberia as the region of discontent amongst Brits.
“And with plumes of hot air expected to continue shifting north, it’s no surprise that many Brits are longing for the heady days of early March.
“With crowded public transport and many rooms still sporting winter bed sheets, this is set to be a testing few weeks for the country”.
The warm weather looks set to last most of the week, but there are signs that more typical spring weather could be on its way.
In Skegness, 45 year-old Brian was spotted doing a rain dance around his miniature paddling pool, while other sightings of people praying with mini fans clasped between their hands were also reported.
