It’s a simple forecast this week – good weather is here throughout the Easter weekend!
High pressure across Britain, and a favourable southerly airflow adds up to lots of warm sunshine for the next few days. The atmosphere will stay quite hazy as is common for a continental air mass.
Temperatures will climb to 20C or above each day over the extended weekend. It will feel like summer has arrived early, but it’s really not that unusual for this weather pattern in April.
There will be very little wind on Saturday, before a strengthening southerly breeze on Sunday as weather fronts try to nibble in from the northwest. This may result in more high cloud, but it will stay dry.
Monday keeps the southerly breeze, and there’s a small chance of a shower, but more likely it will stay dry.
As we go further into next week, there’s an increasing risk of bursts of rain developing as things become more unstable in the atmosphere. Thundery downpours are quite possible in places. Temperatures will fall a little, but tending to be on the mild side, around 13 to 16C by day, and little or no frost overnight.
Whatever your Easter plans, enjoy the weekend and make the most of the sunshine!
