Sussex roads are jammed with people trying to get into Brighton and Hove to make the most of the Bank Holiday sunshine despite the early morning mist.
Vehicles have come to a standstill on some routes into the city as daytrippers try to make their way to the beach for the first spell of warm weather in 2013.
There have been reports that the A23 is queuing as far back as Hickstead with motorists travelling south towards the coast.
Sussex Central RPU tweeted: "The queue on the southbound A23 into Brighton currently stretches an impressive 5.1 miles back up to Sayers Common (13:58)."
Temperatures aren't set to reach any higher than 14C (57.2F), but it hasn't stopped the convoy of vehicles making their way to the seaside.
The burst of sunshine was enough to tempt comedian and keen runner Eddy Izzard to make the most of the weather and jog along the seafront.
Tomorrow, as many return to work after the Bank Holiday break, temperatures in Brighton will peak at 17C (62.6).
If you have managed to make it to the beach, or if you are still stuck in traffic, send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
