“I think hot weather could come in fairly early as far as April is concerned perhaps,” said Mr. Dale,

“I know March is the start of spring but I think we’re probably going to get properly into April before we start to see the searing sort of temperatures.”

He added: “I wouldn’t be surprised to see 26°C, 27°C, 28°C in the middle of April.

“Longer-term, given what’s happening globally in terms of the temperature profiles in the southern hemisphere and what’s also happening in the United States, I would not be surprised if we started to see some big highlights - in whichever direction it goes, either cold or hot.”
