FORECASTERS say we're in for some cracking spring weather for the rest of the Easter holidays.
e Met Oce says temperatures are set to climb into the mid to high teens by the end of the week.
Although it will be mild with some cloud today and tomorrow, ursday and Friday look certain to be the best days of the week.
After a cold start due to fog, temperatures could reach 15C (59F) on ursday and 16C (61F) on Friday with plenty of blue skies and warm sunshine.
As a result parks and other outdoor attractions in the region are expected to be extra busy.
But make the most of it because the following week looks to be slightly wetter and looks to be slightly wetter and cooler as westerly inuences prevail with rain heading over from Ireland.
A Met Oce spokesman said: "Wednesday and ursday will remain dry with pleasant bright or sunny spells.
"After a bright start on Friday, wetter and windier conditions will spread in from the west."
Meanwhile information from Bablake Weather Station in Cov Cov-Bablake Weather Station in Coventry said Easter Sunday was the warmest since 2011.
Forecaster Steve Jackson said: "We enjoyed our warmest Easter Sunday for four years, and with almost ve hours of afternoon hazy sunshine, and just light breezes, it really was a splendid spring day in our region."
e Met Oce has already stated that temperatures have been exceeding those traditionally expected during April.
e average UK temperature for April is usually just 11.4C.
Bank Holiday Monday began with patchy fog across the region that quickly dissipated leaving bright sunshine.
Temperatures reached a maximum of 15C, with just a light breeze and blue skies, making it feel particularly warm for this time of year.
Many holidaymakers are returned from their long week-week end breaks yesterday, with around 16 million cars estimated to have been on the roads over the bank holiday break.
A large programme of engineering works was also carried on the railways between Good Friday and yesterday.
It may not be time to ditch the umbrellas and anoraks just yet but at least we're getting a taster of brighter days to come |
