Summer vibes are returning to St Albans district for the bank holiday weekend.
A mini heatwave is expected to blanket Britain over the next week, with sunny conditions sometimes bringing thunderstorms - especially in the north west.
Met Office forecasters predict St Albans will experience highs of 23C on Sunday, lingering around the 20C mark for the rest of the week.
Herts county council public health executive, Richard Roberts, has issued some sun awareness advice.
He said: “Over-exposure to the sun’s rays can cause serious damage to your skin, and getting sunburnt increases your risk of skin cancer.
You may also want to watch:
“The best way to protect your skin is to wear sun screen. You can also make sure to wear a hat, or cover your skin. Simple measures like this can save your skin from harmful and painful damage caused by the sun when over-exposed.
“Children are particularly vulnerable to skin damage and parents are urged to send their children to school with hats and sun cream that would provide protection for the whole day.”
