Britain faced soring temperatures at the weekend as large parts of the country saw a glimpse of spring sunshine. Those temperatures are set to return for large parts of the UK this month according to the latest graphs, with the Met Office predicting above-average temperatures. Although there will be some brief periods of showers throughout April, the Met Office’s long-range forecast has predicted dry weather will be constant for many.
Reporting on the period between April 11-20, the Met Office said: “Over the rest of the Easter weekend, there should be a good deal of dry, settled weather with sunny spells.
“It will be driest in the south, with the greatest chance of rain and stronger winds in the far north and northwest of the UK.
“Temperatures above normal, and warmest in the south, but with overnight frosts further north.
“Beyond the Easter weekend, this weather pattern is expected to continue with dry weather dominating.”
