On Wednesday April 13, just before the start of the long Easter weekend, the South East of England will experience a brief spell of heat, particularly in East and West Sussex. Temperatures of between 17C and 18C are also predicted for Kent and Surrey, dropping a few degrees towards the West Country, according to data available Friday from WXCharts.

In the Midlands, temperatures of 13C and 14C will be more common, dropping to 9C in the North East of England but clinging to highs of 12C in the North West.

Temperatures will remain largely in the single digits across Scotland, reaching just 5C in northern parts, but within touching double digits towards the English border.

In stark contrast, at the end of the Easter weekend, temperatures will drop towards zero early in the morning.

WXCharts predictions show that on Monday April 18 lows of -1C will be widespread across the South East of England and the North West of the country.

Even colder temperatures will be felt in South Wales, dropping to -2C.

The hottest temperatures will be seen on the east coast, between 1C and 4C from London to Suffolk and Norfolk.

Jim Dale, the founder of British Weather Services, told Express.co.uk that “it’s definitely hot out there” ahead of the weekend.

He noted that “the sun has put on its hat”, which will likely remain for a “calm and pleasant Easter”.

Before a warmer spell next week, this Friday will see the end of much of the showers covering the UK, with the rain dissipating more slowly along the coasts.

The Met Office forecast predicts: “Remaining breezy, particularly in the northeast, but cold with widespread but generally light frost.”

Heading into Saturday, the Met Office said: ‘A rainy day in the north with some sleet possible in the far north and over the mountains. Always windy here.

“Elsewhere mostly dry with lighter winds and some sunshine.”

Sunday is expected to start “frosty”, with “plenty of sunshine” for most of the UK.

The “high pressure” felt next week is expected to “become dominant” towards the end of the month, the Met Office added.

They predict: “Temperatures should remain above average during this period.”
