Easter Forecast

For Easter weekend, Good Friday (March 29) is likely to see blustery showers. There will also be showers on March 30 particularly in the southern and western areas, however there is an increasing chance of sunny spells further north and east.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Mark Sidaway said: “Showers will continue into the weekend, especially for southern and western areas. However, it is likely that we will see something of an improvement for most areas, with the showers tending to be less frequent, and a better chance of longer spells of sunshine for eastern and northern areas in particular. It will also become less windy, and temperatures should start to trend upwards, feeling quite warm in any sunshine.”
