The weather cannot make up its mind, according to Farmers Weather expert Garry Nicholson.

 

While brighter days are coming, so is prolonged rainfall.

 

Mr Nicholson lets us know what to expect in the next week:

 

Changes

 

"There will be some brighter days, but also periods of heavy showers. There is a risk of prolonged heavy rainfall at times, particularly in the south and south-west of the country.

 

"Eastern Scotland too may also see some persistent rain.

 

"Temperatures will vary, but often feeling rather cool. Daytime highs will be 9 to 12C this weekend, whilst early next week may be a little warmer in the south.

 

Frosts

 

"Some nights will bring slight frosts, particularly in the north. Saturday night into Sunday morning may give a widespread frost in central parts of England and Wales where skies clear.

 

"The middle of next week could bring some pretty unpleasant days."

 

Mr Nicholson warns sheep farmers to be wary of unseasonably cold weather for this time of year.

 

Cold

 

"Strong north-easterly winds in Scotland and northern England will make it feel distinctly cold for April, so prepare for this if you’re lambing.

 

"Snow is possible over the higher Pennines and Scottish Highlands at times.

 

"It doesn’t look like settling down in the immediate future, although there are hints of pressure building into the final third of April, from about the 20th, so there may be an improvement by then."
