Easter will be shortly upon us.

Although the beginning of this month is set to see some generally unsettled conditions, according to the Met Office it will gradually become “more settled through to mid month.”

The driest weather is likely to be across the north and although temperatures are likely to start off close to normal, eastern coasts will be colder at times, accompanied by an easterly wind.

“As it turns more settled temperatures may become warmer in places, but with the risk of overnight frost,” adds the Met Office.

Easter weekend weather

Although the Met Office elaborates that “as is typical for spring, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast as we go further through April,” conditions towards the end of the month are set to be settled and warm.

The weather is most likely to stay fairly settled, but some wetter interludes are still possible from time to time.

However, these are set to mainly affect the south and southwest of the UK.

The weather towards the middle and end of April is set to see fairly warm temperatures, coinciding with the Easter bank holiday weekend.

The Met Office said, “Temperatures are likely to be above the average for the time of year, becoming rather warm towards the end of April.”

This week’s weather

Today, Wednesday, will see some further showers, which will be occasionally heavy and wintry over the hills, these perhaps merging into longer spells at times. It will be dry but cold overnight, with a widespread frost.

“Some sun and isolated showers Thursday. Dry, bright with patchy fog early on Friday. Cloudier, possibly rain on Saturday,” add the Met Office.
