Stunning spring weather returns for the Easter weekend – and Brits will be basking in the 20C sun after the bitter Arctic blast.
Last night it was a chilly -6C in parts of the UK, but by the middle of next week it is due to be a whopping 26C higher, with highs of up to 20C.
Met Office forecasters said the weather will be “mostly dry with light winds” – although it is likely to be cloudy near the coast.
Meteorologists say the best day for warmth is likely to be Wednesday.
“Scattered showers are likely to develop through Thursday and some rain may spread to the far west later on,” they said.
“A northwest-southeast weather division is likely to form for the remainder of the period, with the northwest remaining more variable with intermittent strong winds and rain.
“Some rains may initially spread to parts to the south-east occasionally but are likely to dry out and become much heavier in general in the south, although perhaps fairly cloudy, with lighter winds by the end of this period.
“Temperatures are expected to be above average and intermittently warm for the South.”
The Met Office’s Aidan McGivern said: “Warmer weather is on the way from early next week.
“In the southeast we could even see 20 °C.”
Jim Dale, founder of the British Weather Service, said Express.co.uk that it will “definitely be warm” before the weekend.
He noted that the “sun has put its hat on” what will likely remain for a “quiet, pleasant Easter.”
But if you love the warm days, you should make the most of them.
By the end of the Easter weekend, early morning temperatures will drop towards zero.
WXCharts says the south-east and north-west of the country will wake up to -1C on Monday April 18th.
Wales will be even colder at -2°C.
