BRITS can expect temperatures to hit 17C today – making it as hot as popular summer holiday destination Croatia.
But it's not expected to last too long before the weather turns wet in southern England later in the week.
Spring has finally hit the UK this week with the Met Office predicting temperatures will rise to 17C in the Midlands – the same as Pula in Croatia.
Brits can expect a warm and sunny afternoon today "especially inland eastern and south-eastern England," according to the Met Office.
Yet the weather is expected to take a turn by Friday, when cloud and rain will gather.
Showers are possible in southern areas between Wednesday and Friday, according to the Met Office.

A "settled weather regime", with "clearer, drier conditions" is then expected for the rest of April and into early May.

However, the Met warns that "periods of more changeable and unsettled weather are still possible".
It comes after Storm Noa, named by Meteo-France, brought hail and thunderstorms to parts of the country.
The violent storm caused chaos in coastal areas, including felling trees in Plymouth, Devon, which damaged cars and property, while massive waves were filmed off the coast of Cornwall.
One woman in Fareham, Hampshire, even had to be hospitalised after being hit by scaffolding blown loose by fierce gusts.
The Met revealed on Twitter that gusts reached up to 96mph in the Isle of Wight as heavy rain hit much of the country.
