YOU could be forgiven for thinking that the beaming sunshine today was a sign that summer has come early.

And some keen sun worshippers made the most of it and soaked up the rays at the Hot Walls in Old Portsmouth.

But weather experts have warned against getting too excited about the blue skies.

A Met Office spokesperson said: ‘We are having a good spell of settled and warmer weather at the moment because of high pressure and stronger sun now it’s April.

‘It was 15C today in Portsmouth, whereas the average maximum for April is 12.5C, so a bit warmer than average. However it will be getting colder in the next few days and into next week – so make the most of it now.’

Many office workers at 1000 Lakeside, North Harbour, took advantage of the sunshine on their break and enjoyed a few minutes in the warmth.

Pete Hicks, 24 from Fareham, was one of them.

He said: ‘It’s nice weather, it’s been quite bad recently so it makes a nice change.’
