After a lingering winter that seemed to last forever spring feels like it has finally sprung in Calderdale today.
Near cloudless skies and long-awaited warmth in the sun’s rays brought office workers out in force in Halifax this lunchtime.
The town had a continental feel as people soaked up the sunshine all over town, including in the Piece Hall, at the Le Metro at Somerset House, Rawson Street and outside cafes in Corn Market.
Schoolchildren across the district were enjoying the spring weather, including these two Bailiff Bridge Primary pupils (pictured) - nine-year-old’s Katherine Howell and Chelsea Kershaw.
Temperatures this afternoon were set to reach 15C, with the milder conditions forecast to continue into the bank holiday weekend.
Friday will be mosty cloudy with highs of 14C, but the sun should reappear on Saturday. Sunday and Monday will see cloud cover again but should remain dry with highs of 16C.
