It was a relatively chilly start to the week in Sheffield with most of us waking up shivering yesterday morning.

However, the Scandinavian ice blast will be a distant memory by Thursday, with the Met Office predicting temperatures will rise to 21C by Saturday.

Forecaster Simon Partridge said Good Friday will be pleasant before the mercury rises to exceed 20C in areas on Saturday and Sunday.

But clouds could usher in some cooler temperatures in the North West and some parts of the east coast.

Mr Partridge said: "After there was a chilly spell this weekend, we are going to see temperatures gradually increase through the week.

"By the weekend we could see in parts of the country temperatures of around 20C, or just above."

The warm weather was forecast for the south of England as well as western Scotland and the north west of England.

In contrast, the Balearic island of Ibiza will be a drizzly 17C on Saturday so there’s no reason to hop on a flight this weekend.
