April Showers, a Month Late!

Met Office Weather ImageBritain is set for a warm and sunny week; the Daily Mail reports with temperatures hitting nearly 20C in some areas – but the milder weather is likely to be interspersed with rain, hail and thunder.

Forecasters joked that April showers were 'a month late' as the Met Office predicted the South of England could see highs of 18C today, while northern regions areas are expected to reach 16C.

Temperatures were already at 12C in East Anglia by 7am today on what was the first frost free morning for at least a fortnight, while the rest of the UK was also mild with the mercury between 8C and 11C.

The prospect of conditions being settled after a washout Saturday has been dashed with forecasters predicting showers across England, although they will pass through quickly amid windy conditions today and tomorrow.

By Wednesday, the wind is predicted to drop, raising concerns showers could give rise to more prolonged periods of rain for some areas - while Thursday will be quite cloudy with further areas of showers likely in most places.

All great news for the garden and lawns after an incredibly cold and dry April.
