Easter heatwave to DISAPPEAR as temperatures plummet today following hottest day of the year

Easter Sunday to hit 19C before heatwave ends

The Met Office has forecast a mini heatwave today, with highs of 19C – before Monday sees a drop in temperatures.

Forecasters have said temperatures are expected to reach highs of 19C across England and Wales today.

According to the Met Office, the daytime average in the UK for April is highs of 13C.

However, Easter Monday is predicted to have a cloudy start which will then turn bright and sunny later on.

Speaking about this evening, Simon Partridge, Met Office forecaster, said: “Sunday’s mostly dry across the vast majority of the country, apart from the far west, but it will turn slightly cloudy as the day goes on.

“So whereas yesterday and today we’ve had lots of sunshine, tomorrow it will be more milky sunshine, because we’ll have very high level clouds coming in.

“But it will still be bright and dry and a little bit cooler tomorrow.

“Most of the rain is overnight, from Sunday night into Bank Holiday Monday morning.

“As it makes its way eastwards it kind of fizzles out.

“We will see some rain across predominantly Wales, north-west England and western Scotland, but by the time most people are up, it will be dry.”

He added that there will be a “fairly cloudy start”, but “it will break up to the brighter sunny spells and isolated light showers (are) possible, but the only real rain is by time we get to the evening in western Scotland” .
