GLORIOUS sunshine has had the people of Hartlepool flocking to the fantastic parks and beaches across the town.
But the message from weathermen today is enjoy it while it lasts as the warmer spell will pass by the weekend.
Our photographer was out and about to capture these great images from around town.
They show people enjoying themselves in temperatures which topped 16C.
And while tomorrow will continue in the same vein, the clouds will start to move in around teatime and temperatures will gradually drop over the weekend.
By Saturday, Hartlepool will be a much cooler 11C at the height of the day and rain will arrive at around 1pm.
The outlook for next week shows the weather will be changeable, probably for the whole week and especially in the north, with cloudier spells and outbreaks of rain interspersed by drier, brighter spells.
And we could return to colder nights with people waking up to layers of frost.
Longer range forecasts are currently predicting more of the cooler temperatures expected this weekend.
