Sussex is set to enjoy summertime temperatures today (Wednesday April 15), while other counties are dealing with conditions cooler than average for this time of year.

Today is set to be the hottest of the year so far, and looks set to be the warmest we will see for the rest of the month, as temperatures are expected to return to average or just above average for April.

The south-east of England has been enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures this week, with a high of 22.8degC in London yesterday.

The Met Office has forecast a 30% chance of the mercury rising to 25.5C today, but a cool front moving down from the north will ensure temperatures return closer to the average for April towards the weekend.
