Yesterday I was cautiously optimistic about today's prospects and talked in terms of sunny spells. What a treat, then, to see almost clear skies across much of the region this morning.
There was some cloud around for the early risers but even that was tinged with orange and was a feast for the eyes.
In order to avoid disappearing even further into the realms of purple prose I'll return to the job in hand and let you know that today will be fine with plenty of sunshine and we'll see temperatures getting up to 16C. It's probably worth mentioning the C word again because there will be a little more cloud appearing later but this won't spoil what's set to be a good day. Light winds will help too because in the sun it's going to feel really rather pleasant.
