I hope you all enjoyed our first warm spell of the year last weekend and got some sunbathing or a BBQ in before the weather changed quickly on the Sunday afternoon. In fact, the temperature dropped from 18°C to 11°C in just a couple of hours.
So, will the warm sunny weather return in time for Easter?
Headline: Changeable with Monday, followed by Saturday, looking the best days of the Easter Holidays.
Thursday: A day of some bright spells but generally cloudy. We might catch the odd shower during the morning. Cool breeze. Max 11°C
Good Friday: Don’t expect much in the way of sunshine. Mostly cloudy with a spell of light rain likely which will turn drizzly later. Cool. Max 10°C
Saturday: Cloudy with some showers during the morning but hopefully an improvement into the afternoon as the showers ease and it turns brighter. Max 10°C
Easter Sunday: Any early brightness fades as cloud thickens and rain arrives from the west. A little uncertainty on how wet it gets as the rain might slip a little further south. Feeling cold with a freshening breeze. Max 10°C
Bank Holiday Monday: Hopefully, a little ridge of high pressure moves across the country, so after a chilly start with a possible ground frost, a dry day with sunny spells and a little milder. A chance of some rain from the west late-afternoon or into the evening. Max 12°C
Looking Ahead: Some spells of showery rain but not amounting to much. Later in the week it remains cool as winds could turn northerly.
