And pick out the errors in this: Spring is here as sunny weather sweeps Britain - quite apart from the fact it's overcast today ... I'm not sure where the weeks of bitterly cold weather got to and England's 'normal 9.3c' is the average maximum for the month, so we expect many places to record much higher temperatures every year. As indeed they do. I have no idea where they get the idea this 'heatwave' will last till Easter, either. It does look like being a mostly dry and settled month down here though - not good for the water table.
