I'll be taking the bike out again to bask in the balmy March temps :lol: Might even cut the grass afterwards!

Anyone else in for a pleasant weekend of weather?

We've already had a few 14-15C days, including today. (ok, not a weekend so it doesn't count, but still the plants benefit...)

Wunderground forecasts 18C for Sunday here, BBC - 16C on Sunday and 15C on Saturday.

No, I expect here the hard frosts will prevent temperatures getting up to mid-teens, if the forecast (which has now been pretty persistent) comes off. Typical readings here will be around -2C to -3C at night rising to around 8-9C by day. This is similar to deep winter temperatures when we have a slight cold spell.

Whilst I don't doubt temperatures in other places with better placing will get mid-teens and escape frost, I'm afraid some places won't get that comfort.

ps sorry I just saw you said Saturday, I thought you meant for the week beyond :shock:

Maybe a local 20C somewhere in the South of Holland on sunday. If not, there will be 17-18C on large scale with plenty of sunshine, combinated with higher uv it must feel comfortable.

It's only 14.6C right now, but there is a decent amount of sun so maybe we'll hit that 16C promised.
