Met Office Easter forecast

Thursday will be a warm, dry and sunny day for most of the country.

If you’re in the eastern counties, it might feel a bit cooler with onshore winds, but temperatures will still be in the mid-teens.

And on Friday, as the long weekend kicks off, we’ll see this pattern continue.

There might be a bit of early mist or fog, but that will quickly clear off.

Saturday sees much of the same again, with temperatures possibly in the low twenties on both Friday and Saturday in the south.

Sunday will see the fine and sunny weather continue in the south, but it’ll turn cloudier and drizzly in the north.

The  said: “The second half of the Easter weekend will slowly turn more changeable and cooler, with outbreaks of rain and stronger winds spreading in from the northwest.

“However, some southeastern parts could remain dry, bright and fairly warm especially through Sunday and at first on Monday.”

But first, plenty of glorious sunshine will abound.

Met Office forecaster Ellie Creed told the Evening Standard: “On Friday morning, there could well be mist and fog in the east, but that will quickly clear.

It will be a fine and dry day, with plenty of sunshine making it feel very warm.

There will be plenty of April sunshine on Saturday, and again it will be very warm – though it will be a little cooler in the north-east compared to elsewhere.

“The outlook for Sunday and Monday is many places will remain fine and dry, but a band of rain will gradually make its way south-east.

“It will mean increased clouds, with the potential for rain.

“While many places will stay dry on Sunday, there will be a band of rain slipping across Scotland, the north-east and Northern Ireland through the early hours.

“As it moves further south, however, it will fizzle away. So the heaviest rain will be overnight.”
