France can say hello to some seriously pleasant temperatures this week, as spring arrives to the entire country.
After a particularly pleasant weekend, it looks like it's finally time to pack away the scarves and winter jackets (but not the umbrellas, more on this later).
National weather agency Météo France said temperatures would soar to 20C for most of the week, starting on Monday. 
Indeed, if the mercury isn't hitting 20C it will be pretty close to it across the country.

In fact, it's tipped to be warmer in the far north and in north western Brittany on Monday than it will be on the Mediterranean.

Paris will even reach 19C on Monday afternoon.
And as if that wasn't enough, the warmer climes are set to stay around until at least Thursday, the agency said, with some parts tipped to record temperatures even above 20C.

But the sunshine isn't here to stay, unfortunately.
Météo France has forecast rain for Friday, with showers set to hang around for the entire weekend.  Make the most of the sunshine while you can.
