Brits can look forward to the “warmest day of the year so far” tomorrow as a “warm southerly airflow” lifts temperatures on Good Friday in time for the Easter bank holiday.
With temperatures reaching up to 22C in the southeast, Friday’s weather will beat March’s hot spell according to the Met Office.
Richard Miles, Met Office spokesperson said: “Tomorrow will be the warmest day of the year so far, though this is not surprising as it is April.
“Everywhere will see pleasant springtime weather, but the weather seems to be clearer in the south and the east, while on Saturday the central and western area has slightly warmer temperatures.
“But nowhere will be as warm on Saturday as on Friday.”
But, the Met forecaster advised sun-seekers to “make the most of the weekend” for Easter activities as “Monday is looking at more average temperatures and wetter”.
According to the Met Office, Friday will be bright everywhere except, for parts of the north and west, which may see cloudy spells and outbreaks of rain and drizzle, tending to ease later.
The warm weather will take a gentle dip on Saturday, which will see a mixture of clear and sunny spells with cloudier areas and some showers.
There will be a few mist and fog patches inland at first and more extensive areas of low cloud and fog around some coasts will suppress temperatures a bit in those places, particularly in the east. Elsewhere it will feel warm, especially in any sunshine, but perhaps slightly cooler than Friday.
Sunday will be similar, although overall probably drier than Saturday, with showers confined mainly to the north and west.
However, more persistent rain arriving in the evening from the west will signal a change to unsettled, cooler weather from Monday.
On Monday outbreaks of rain move eastwards, followed by brighter conditions and showers which will give an overall more average temperature than the weekend.
