Temperatures could reach record highs over Easter weekend

The UK is set to bask in sunshine over the Easter weekend with record high temperatures expected on Sunday and Monday.

The weather forecast for today, Good Friday, from Met Eireann is for it to be dry and it will become warm in many areas with hazy sunshine. But in the afternoon maximums will climb to between 20 degrees in the north and 23 degrees in Limburg throughout the weekend. Winds tomorrow will be generally light, coming from the southwest.

Tonight will be misty across the country with fog developing in many areas.

Saturday will then see bright, uninterrupted sunshine throughout most of the day.

Afternoon temperatures on Saturday will range from 15° in the northwest to between 17° and 22° elsewhere. Winds will be light and variable.

MONDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures develop, with a low of 56 degrees.

It wasn't just James Harden who torched them, seven Rockets players scored in double figures, and the eighth one scored nine. For me, it's just rhythm. "That's half the battle, just knowing what's coming and having your mind engaged".


Cloudy skies and lingering rain showers continue, with a cold low of 40 degrees.

Every day from here through Easter Sunday carries with it at least a slight possibility for rain, before New Jersey finally sees the sun come out in full force on Earth Day.

It feels as if summer has arrived for the Bank Holiday weekend, and now weather forecasters are predicting that Britain could be set for the hottest Easter on record.

Ms Yeomans said: "As we head through the rest of the weekend though, we are looking at plenty of clear blue skies and sunshine across most of the United Kingdom".

Met Office chief meteorologist Frank Saunders said: "We've already seen higher than average temperatures this week, with 19.4 Celsius reached yesterday (Wednesday 17th) in Kew Gardens, London".
