However, the warm and sunny weather might not stick around for everyone through the whole weekend.
"On Friday we are look at up to 20 degrees, and on Saturday 21 degrees as well".
How warm could it get? .
It was a lovely start to the work week with a lot of sunshine and temperatures back up into the lower and mid 50s away from the lake, but this morning it is a bit of a different story.
According to its forecast, the upcoming long weekend - Easter Weekend - will see sky-scraping temperatures.
A spokesperson warned that this week's heat wave will be short-lived, "it looks like our weather will become much colder and unsettled from Easter Monday onwards with rain or showers at times and with temperatures dropping back to around 10 or 11 degrees". Temperatures will be a notch warmer then, too.
Easter is late this year, and the high temperatures are likely to push 2019 into the list of warmest Easter weekends, the KNMI said.
But it is not certain how long the sunshine will last, with some parts of the country set for a cooler Easter Sunday than others.
Temperatures will take a slight dip on Easter Sunday.
This happened in Heathrow (London), Mildenhall (Suffolk) and Wisley (Surrey) where 27.8C was recorded in 1949.
It could potentially be the hottest day of the year so far, while temperatures on Monday hit the slightly lower heights of 16C.
The UV levels will also be moderate for many areas, so top up on suncream if you plan on spending periods of time outdoors.
