The Easter Holiday Outlook

Hi all,

All change ahead. Someone is about to turn the tap back on after pretty much two weeks’ worth of dry, cool and mainly cloudy weather. The lack of rain has been a much needed spell of weather for all gardens and sport pitches.

Thursday sees the high pressure, which was established over the country for the prolonged dry spell, a distant memory as rain pushes in from the west. After a dry start a wet afternoon on the cards but the rain will ease into the evening. Max 8°C.

Change arrives Thursday as fronts pile in from the west

A temporary ridge of high pressure slips in for Good Friday so the best day of our holidays. Sunny spells and milder. Mainly dry too so not a bad day at all. Max 12°C.

Hmmmmm, I think the weather knows it’s not only the weekend but also a Bank Holiday one.

Rain during Saturday and windy too with gusts possible to 40mph for a time. Feeling cooler. The rain should turn showery later. Max 9°C.

A wet Saturday is on the cards as rain spreads east

A slightly better day on Easter Sunday. Bright spells and showers. The odd one could be heavy with thunder and lightning. Breezy. Max 10°C.

Quite an active low pressure could arrive on Bank Holiday Monday which would bring rain or showers after a dry morning. The windiest of the weather at the moment looks likely to stay further south but one to watch as details are still uncertain. Cool. Max 9°C.

An active low pressure possible for Monday – eyes peeled

Looking ahead and it will remain cool with showers at times. No sign of some Spring warmth yet.
