How Wales has been lapping up an early taste of summer

As promised by ‘Derek the Weatherman’, the warm sunshine finally reached Wales today (Wednesday 18th April), as temperatures climbed to 20°C across the country.

Although many of us woke to a rather cloudy and cool Wednesday morning, the Met Office claims today will mark the hottest day of the year so far.

We’ve taken a look at your tweets from today to find out how Wales has been making the most of an early summer.
