West London was the hottest place in Britain today (Monday February 20), as temperatures recorded were the warmest of the year so far.
A Met Office spokesman said that the soaring temperatures were caused by tropical Atlantic air sweeping across the country from the Caribbean.
Heathrow Airport enjoyed highs of 18.3°C, whilst other areas in the country were slightly cooler, with 17.5°C recorded in Marham in Norfolk.
It was only just over a week ago that wpeople were wrapping up to brave snow showers and sub-zero temperatures, but today was a completely different story as Twitter users were only too happy to share.
However, this hot weather will not be staying.
The Met Office spokesman, Nicola Maxey ,said: "From tomorrow temperatures start dropping - much more near the average temperature for the time of year."
In London, it will feel much cooler than today, with temperatures only reaching highs of 13°C.
The Met Office forecast in the capital for February 21 says: "Rather cloudy with outbreaks of light rain at first.
"Whilst the rain will ease by the afternoon with some brighter spells developing, most places will remain cloudy."
These temperatures will continue to drop as we move towards the end of the week, with highs of just 8°C forecast for Friday February 24 and wet and windy weather on the way.
So, sorry to say, but put those flip-fops back into the wardrobe, it is not quite time to get your toes out yet.
