As reported by the Mirror, a Met Office spokesperson said: "Thursday will dawn bright as you step outside.
"It may be a bit chilly but it's going to warm up very quickly and very nicely.
"Showers easing, we gain some clearer skies.
"[Today] some sunshine and feeling warm throughout the afternoon as temperatures climb into the high teens if not low 20s.
