Northern Ireland is in another sunny spell, just after the fine weather in mid to late June.
Temperatures in Belfast reached 20C yesterday.
In the city centre office workers, tourists and families used the City Hall’s grassy areas to sunbathe, chat and even picnic on the lawn.
A tourist from England told the News Letter he was on holiday in Northern Ireland with his family and they had expected wind and rain.
He said that they had “been told to expect cold and rain in Ulster, but it’s been beautiful”.
Heat slowly built up over the weekend. Helen’s Bay, the hottest place, recorded a high of 19C on Sunday. In England, temperatures of up to 22C were recorded at some seaside spots on Sunday.
Forecasters predicted sunny spells on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The thermometer is set to reach 21C in Belfast today, and be hotter in the west – Londonderry can expect 22C and Omagh 23C.
But sun-worshippers be warned: clouds are expected tomorrow afternoon, with rain from Thursday morning.
