The good weather comes courtesy of a cloud of mild air straight from the Sahara.

But along with plenty of spring sunshine, the cloud also caused a bizarre meteorological phenomenon.

The sky turned red as desert sands were swept up into the atmosphere. People living in the East and Southeast may have spotted telltale orange sediment on their cars and windows.

But the Met Office said the best weather will arrive on Good Friday – ahead of the Easter weekend.

They said the southerly airflow will bring mild temperatures this weekend, with mercury peaking at 22C in the southeast.

The forecasters added: “On Saturday we will see a mix of clear and sunny periods with cloudier areas and some showers.

“These showers will most likely occur early in the day in central and western areas, but could develop intermittently elsewhere.

“Initially, a few patches of mist and fog inland and more widespread areas of low cloud and fog on some coasts will weigh down temperatures in those locations a bit, particularly in the east.

“It will feel warm elsewhere, especially with any sunshine, but maybe a little cooler than Friday.”

Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth says the east of England will see the best weather in the coming days.

“I think mainly for the bank holiday weekend, let’s see Temperatures well above average across the UK,” she said.

“Hopefully it could get very warm, especially in the southeast.”

Although it will be hotter than usual this time of year, Ms Shuttleworth says temperatures will be “nowhere near heat wave criteria”.

“However, it’s definitely going to be warmer than the week we just had and last week,” she said.

The highest temperatures so far this year reached 20.8 °C.

But this long weekend is likely to be a little less than 2C warmer.

“We will see temperatures generally rising as the week progresses,” Ms Shuttleworth said.

A VERY GOOD FRIDAY

“From Thursday Temperatures could reach 20ºC, 21ºC and possibly 22ºC.”

Neil Armstrong, chief meteorologist, said: “Most people will see some spells of decent bank holiday weather this weekend and it will feel warm in places, particularly in the first half of the Easter holidays.

“However, later on Sunday a low pressure area will hit the north west of the UK bringing unsettled weather to the north with some strong winds and rain in the north west which could affect driving conditions for some but it will be drier further south. especially in the southeast.

“There will be variable amounts of cloud but temperatures are likely to be well above average for the time of year, although low cloud could keep temperatures lower in coastal areas.

“But where the sun is shining, people can expect very pleasant spring conditions.”

Jim Dale, Meteorologist for the UK Weather Service, said: “The trend is for temperatures to rise.

“If things develop we could be looking at 20C or 21C in the south over Easter.”

Bookmakers are also expecting a scorcher, with Ladbrokes lowering their odds to 5/2 as it marks the hottest Easter on record.

Spokesman Alex Apati said: “It looks like a record-breakingly hot Easter could now be upon us given the latest odds.”

However, hay fever sufferers have been warned to be careful as pollen counts will skyrocket.

Airborne allergens expert Max Wiseberg said: “The start of the tree pollen season has been slow, with the bad weather so far for most of this spring.

“But it looks like the season could start in earnest with high pollen counts forecast in southern and eastern England on Monday.”
