Spring is in the air! Here's how to enjoy it

warm weekend UK weather sees spring start two weeks earlyPA

Goodbye winter, hello spring! This weekend is set to see the new season start two weeks early, according to UK weather forecasters.

A warm front from the south west is rising up through Britain, and will see highs of 15C from Saturday.

Met Office spokeswoman Sarah Holland told Aol Travel: "The weekend is looking mostly dry and mild, with the best of the sunny spells in the east. There is the chance of rain the west of the country at times.

"Temperatures up to around 14-15C both Saturday and Sunday which is still mild for this time of year. As we move into early next week temperatures in many places remain in double figures."

Netweather forecaster Paul Michaelwhite told The Metro: "Most of us will get our first really warm, sunny spell of spring, with sunshine breaking through in many areas on Sunday.

"High pressure close by means a continental airflow bringing warm sunshine for many of us next week, possibly extending to all parts, bar north-west Scotland."

Feel like hitting the beach? Tripadvisor's latest Travellers Choice Awards reveals that Bournemouth is our absolute favourite British beach destination.

In fact we love it so much that we'd prefer to go to Bournemouth than the Med. The Dorset resort not only claimed the hotspot in Britain, it also ranked above almost every Mediterranean destination in Tripadvisor's top ten European beaches, beating British favourites such as Benidorm in Spain and Albufeira in the Algarve.
