Local residents were this morning left bemused when they stepped outside to see that the sky had turned an unusual shade of light blue. To add to the confusion there are reportedly very few clouds to be seen, and some witnesses have even suggested that there is a “bright yellow thing”.
Temperatures have soared to what some locals have described as a “heat wave” and clothes are being shed across the area, with some instances of all-out nudity being reported.
“I couldn’t believe it when I left the house and saw the colour of the sky,” said one shocked local man. “It isn’t the sort of thing we see around here it this time of year. I don’t remember the last time I saw such a shade of blue.”
Another local resident added: “I don’t know exactly what that big yellow thing is up there, but it’s warm and I kind of like it.”
The Met Office confirmed that it is indeed sunshine.
