Sheffield has experienced its warmest weather of the year so far, with last weekend proving particularly hot. A family is pictured here in the Botanical Gardens enjoying the pleasant conditions.

Temperatures will likely be much cooler this weekend, but the more seasonable weather is preferable to that of two weeks ago when snow fell, making it feel more like January. Forecasters are predicting more hot weather soon.
