LIFE looked that little bit brighter for people in Hartlepool and East Durham thanks to another day of glorious weather.
The area was basked in bright sunshine again yesterday as summer finally put in an appearance after the coldest spring for decades.
The Mail’s photographers were out and about to snap people enjoying the sun at Hartlepool’s parks and beaches.
Despite a touch of mist at the Headland and Seaton Carew, people still soaked up the sun and enjoyed an ice cream or had fun building sand castles.
Hartlepool’s Ward Jackson Park was the place to be for a spot of sunbathing as the temperature rose to 19 degrees Celsius.
Yesterday was due to mark an end to the nice weather with it turning cooler and there being less sunshine between now and the weekend.
Today is due to be cloudy for most of the day with the sun not de to put in an appearance before 7pm.
Temperatures will struggle to reach above 12 degrees.
Thursday will also be cloudy but feeling warm at 17 degrees and sunny intervals in the afternoon.
Friday and Saturday are forecast to be largely sunny with some cloud and highs of 15 degrees Celsius.
A Met Office spokesman said: “Today will see a dull, grey start with mist or fog and a little drizzle too, but it will be warm with sunny spells developing inland.
“The maximum temperature 16C.
“The outlook for Thursday to Saturday is that it will be mostly dry with sunny spells developing, once any overnight mist or fog has cleared, and becoming warm inland.”
Whatever the weather, The Mail will be there to capture it on camera.
