A bright start to the day, cloud to follow and temperatures remain cold.
This March is set to be the coldest in the UK since 1962, weather experts said today. And usual Spring temperatures aren't expected to kick in until we're almost into May.
Statistics from the Met Office showed that from March 1 to 26 the UK mean temperature was 2.5C (36.5F), which is three degrees below the long-term average.
This made it the joint fourth coldest in the UK, in records going back to 1910.
