Easter weekend weather

Easter weather can be varied

21 April 2011 - Our forecasters are predicting mainly fine, dry and warm conditions at times for many parts of the UK this Easter weekend.

Over the long weekend, the best weather is likely to be across England and Wales, with highs reaching the low 20's.

However, the high temperatures may trigger isolated heavy and perhaps thundery showers.

Mixed fortunes are expected over Northern Ireland and Scotland, with sunshine but also some showery rain at times and cooler temperatures by Bank Holiday Monday.

The fine weather is expected to draw many people out and about with plenty of activities across the UK.

Lady Cobham, Chairman of VisitEngland said: "We know that taking a holiday at home is a trend that is here to stay and the weather this Easter looks like getting the season off to a flying start."
