It may have been a warm weekend - with Gravesend notching up the south's high of 17C - but weather pundits are warning of a colder spell to follow.
The Met Office expects temperatures to drop from this evening with a changeable weather pattern more in keeping for spring.
Families across Kent enjoyed the sunny spell over the weekend - but the south was put marginally in the shade by parts of the north, with Murlough near Newcastle in Co Down registering the UK's top hot spot of 17.5C.
The unseasonable weather was attributed to sub-tropical air flowing from the Azores, but storms moving across the Atlantic are soon expected to put paid to that.
The relatively balmy spell is set to be replaced with rain and wind, with temperatures falling to around 10C for the rest of the week - though the Met Office does suggest there may be a few sunny spells to break up the gloom.
