SOUTHAMPTON residents basked in temperatures as high as 24C today.

And it's good news for sunseekers, who are set to enjoy bumper temperatures throughout the Easter weekend.

According to the Met Office, temperatures tomorrow could hit 21C around 2pm.

Monday won't quite reach the heights of super-hot Saturday, with temperatures dropping again to 18C, before temperatures drop back down towards 12C towards the end of the week.

The new forecast means tomorrow's temperatures are unlikely to reach record levels in Hampshire.

The warmest Easter Sunday previously recorded was 25.3C in Solent, Hampshire, on 24 April 2011.
