Records could be smashed as Easter warmth continues with mercury soaring

Saturday's weather saw much of the country bask in temperatures nearly 10C higher than the average for this time of year.

The mercury in London will hit 26C today, nearly 10C hotter than the Greek capital Athens, which will only reach 17C today.

The sun-drenched weekend had already seen Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland experience their hottest ever Easter Sunday.

Temperatures hit 25.5C on Saturday to make it the warmest day of the year so far - and there is more hot stuff to come.

Britain will be bathed in sunshine over the Bank Holiday weekend with temperatures reaching potentially record levels for Easter.

Brits lather up with sun cream on what could be the hottest day of the year so far.

The weather forecast for the Easter weekend from Met Eireann is for temperatures to soar into the 20s on Good Friday, Easter Saturday and most of Easter Sunday although there is uncertainty on the weather front for later on Sunday and Monday.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: "At 1pm temperatures of 21.3C were recorded at Aboyne and Fyvie Castle".

Jet Airways’ employees are not ready to let go of the company
Besides, it also operates some flights to these regions from North and Western India as well as on some domestic routes. We have about 20 of them already, all from Jet Airways as at present only Jet pilots are available in the market.

London's 25C on Saturday was a huge rise from the April average of 14C.

The dry bright and warm conditions have marked a glorious Easter for Scotland.

Roberts said cloud and rain would disappear by Monday.

He added: "Spain is very unsettled as we go into Easter Monday".

This was still shy of the top Easter Sunday temperature from 2011 when the mercury reached 25.3C in the Solent.

Especially when you consider that Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all had record-breaking weather, with highs of 23C, 22.8C and 20.7C respectively.

The warmest temperature recorded on an Easter Friday was 26.9C at St James's Park in London in 2011, with the mercury reaching 25.3C on Easter Sunday and 24C on Easter Monday that year.
