The weather looks set to warm up as we head towards the Easter weekend, with Saharan dust driven northwards, creating beautiful sunsets across the country.

It’s unlikely to be crystal clear sunshine this Easter weekend by any means, but it’s likely to be much milder than the weather we’ve seen recently, with sunshine at times and just the odd shower here and there.

The Met Office forecast shows temperatures rising to around 18c in Herefordshire, with 20c possible in the South East and London.

The Met Office forecast for Herefordshire says:

Tuesday:

Tuesday will start with heavy rain, but this will clear by noon. The afternoon will start cloudy with a few showers, but some brighter spells are likely later. Maximum temperature 18 ¬įC.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Sunny spells and showers on Wednesday, feeling warm. Cloudy at first on Thursday, sunny spells developing later. Early mist and fog slow to clear on Friday, brighter later.

Friday 15th – Sunday 24th April:

This period is likely to begin with rain moving east, easing as it does so, with early mist and fog. Mostly fine conditions are expected in eastern and southern areas, with light winds, though low cloud may linger near eastern coasts. Some light showers are possible across central southern areas. For the rest of the period, a northwest-southeast split is likely, with the northwest remaining more changeable with strong winds and rain at times. Some rain may occasionally spread into parts of the southeast at first, but it is likely to turn dry and become generally much more settled, though perhaps rather cloudy, in the south, with lighter winds through to the end of this period. Temperatures are expected to be above average, and warm at times for the south.
