Happy Easter - there is a warm sunny weekend ahead

Happy Easter - there is a warm sunny weekend ahead

"There is some uncertainty over the timing of that, so it could be that Easter Sunday and Easter Monday remain warm and dray and sunny for some parts of the country but not others".

There is a 40% chance of a few showers and storms Wednesday morning and before 3pm in the afternoon as a cold front moves through.

Friday and Saturday will be much drier and warmer with temperatures heating up to the 70s both afternoons.

Highs will reach the low to mid-50s.

According to its forecast, the upcoming long weekend - Easter Weekend - will see sky-scraping temperatures.

Kohlschreiber beat Djokovic in Indian Wells a month ago and the pair have been drawn to face each other again this afternoon. The top seed said that while he would prefer to head to Paris with a title in his pocket, it's not a desperate situation.

Thursday is the day we need to watch.

A drier end to the week is expected with high pressure over Scandinavia ridging westwards across Britain allowing warmer air to drift upwards from France. Right now, it looks as if severe weather could be a possibility somewhere in the region, but it's too early to nail down exactly where.

However, those hoping to relax in the hot weather this weekend should make the most of it, as it could turn cooler from Easter Sunday. Even though we'll begin Passover and Good Friday with 50-degree lows, highs will only rise to the mid-60s.

Rain is steady from late morning through the afternoon. So, we may as well answer that straight off the bat - it'll be 18-22c widely, some places perhaps a touch warmer (25c maybe?), but cooler close to some east coasts.

On Saturday, temperatures will be in the mid-50s and will rise just above 60 degrees Sunday.
