BBC Weather's Matt Taylor said the temperature peaked at 24C in Sussex yesterday as glorious sunshine has poured down onto the UK. The meteorologist explained the weather will turn cooler by this evening. He said: "In east Sussex yesterday is where we saw the highest of the temperature at 24C. Quite a few of you got above 20C yesterday.

"For this time of year, we should be in the mid-teens. It's quite warm weather at the moment.

"It's still getting chilly by night. A touch of frost around parts of Scotland and northern England.

"Some blue skies overhead and hazy sunshine in the day with more low cloud in northeast Scotland.

"It might not hit 24C but still widely into the 20s across southern parts today.

Again, temperatures in southern England and the southwest are expected to rise as high as 22C to 24C.
