Britain may have been in the grip of one of the earliest cold snaps on record but Fethiye has been enjoying a fine and warm period.

Day time temperatures almost touched 25 degrees centigrade last week despite some cloud. Night times have been mild.

However, it is too early to gloat about good weather as rain is forecast to return today and temperatures will drop to seasonal norms.

Expect the day time temperatures to reach no more than 18 degrees on Monday and night time to around 6 degrees centigrade at sea level. Temperatures will be less at higher temperatures.
