Sunny Weather Brings Highest UK Temperatures to West Sussex

Friday's sunny weather

On Friday, the mercury hit 17.5C in the West Sussex village of Wiggonholt - which was the highest anywhere in the country.

Today (Saturday, 19 March) probably saw the warmest day of the year across the UK, but on Friday, the mercury hit 17.5C in the West Sussex village of Wiggonholt - which was the highest anywhere in the country.

The village sits just north of Worthing, and recorded the highest temperature of the year to mark the end of the working week as we edge closer to the end of the meteorological winter.

In fact, it's just a week until the clocks go forward - on Sunday, March 27 - which officially marks the start of spring.

The rest of the weekend is set to see more glorious weather with 'wall to wall sunshine' set to hit West Sussex and the rest of the UK as we head towards the summer.

Average temperatures for March should see highs of 10C and lows of 4C, according to the Met Office.
