It is looking like the North East has recorded the top temperature for the UK today.
It got up to 20.9C at Chillingham Barns in Northumberland - with other areas in the county and North Yorkshire coming close.
But make the most of it - temperatures will drop dramatically over the weekend.
Temperatures have already climbed to over 20C in parts of Northumberland.
With high pressure in control and hardly a cloud in the sky it is a very pleasant day across the north east.
But make the most of it - things will go downhill tomorrow.
A cool start, with any mist or fog patches soon clearing to leave a fine and sunny day with light winds.
Feeling warm later in the day. Maximum Temperature 14C.
