Hopes of catching any rays in Derbyshire this week have been dashed, with The Met Office forecasting mostly heavy rain and cloud until Sunday when we could finally see some appropriately sunny spells.

Despite the rain, temperatures are set to be fairly mild- as high as 23C in some parts of the region.

Just be thankful you’re not in the South East of England where temperatures have plummeted to 14C- colder than it was on Christmas Day.
