Looking further ahead, the Met Office UK outlook for Monday 22 April to Wednesday 1 May said, "During Easter Monday it may turn cooler and more unsettled across northern and western areas, with stronger winds and outbreaks of heavy rain". The temperature will reach its peak of 21C by mid-afternoon, remaining warm throughout the evening. We're mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 40s for most of the day.

Monday will herald a period of blustery rain and cooler temperatures ranging from 13 to 15 degrees, although it could still be warmer than normal for the time of year.

"You will need the sunscreen over the next few days which will lift the temperatures across the country". However as high pressure builds this week and southeasterly winds bring warmer air from mainland Europe, temperatures will quickly rise and there'll be plenty of dry and sunny weather expected across the United Kingdom, . The deeper into the day we go, the better chance for showers there will be.

Mr Deakin concluded: "Into the weekend, the fine weather will persist throughout Friday, into Saturday and for most on Sunday". Clouds thicken up Thursday night as showers arrive overnight.

Thursday night - Increasing clouds, mild. Any shower activity for Easter will be on the light side amounting to generally a trace to a tenth of an inch.

Luckily for most of us, that fine weather will settle in for the rest of Friday in what will be the second day of a potentially five-day Easter sizzle.

The bulk of the rain looks to fall during the second part of the day Saturday and then start tapering off early Sunday.

"At this point, it looks like Saturday morning will be a washout with widespread rain", says Gillham. Highs in the 60s.
