Sun worshippers have been taking advantage of the unexpected weather across Northern Ireland.

Temperatures soared to double figures yesterday as people basked in the rays across our beaches, parks and coasts.

However, people should enjoy the warm spring weather while it lasts, because forecasters have warned that a blast of chilly Arctic air is expected to sweep across the region over the weekend.

Today will start nippy and will be colder compared to the recent warm days.

But it will still be generally dry with a good deal of bright weather and pleasant sunny spells.

The weekend is expected to turn much colder, with a few light wintry showers and even some snow showers later over upland areas. However, it will be dry for much of the time with sunny spells and overnight frosts.
