Those heading to the beach to take advantage of the warm spell are advised to take sunscreen, with a bright and sunny day forecast.

Though most people are enjoying the fine weather the lack of rain has led to warnings that parts of the county are running out of water, with reservoirs and rivers hitting increasingly low levels. Almost no rain has fallen the whole month of March and also this month is very dry.

Bulbs Growers are spraying their fields and also the garden at home can use a splash of water.

The meteorologists forecast a maximum of 23 to 26 degrees with plenty Sun for Easter Sunday.

Easter Monday it will be 20 to 24 degrees, but still the beautiful weather.
