Spring seems to be creeping up on us, with lambing now in full swing for many farmers, and sunny, bright spells of weather gradually pushing through the clouds.

 

Garry Nicholson of Farmer Weather said: "Our recent strong area of high pressure will continue to bring dry, settled weather into early next week.

 

"A little fine drizzle may affect some eastern areas where low cloud persists.

 

"Extensive low cloud and murk which spread in from the North Sea early today (Friday) will linger across the south and east this weekend, although a little sun may break through at times.

 

Sunshine

 

"A chilly north-easterly breeze will affect the east & south-east of England, keeping temperatures at just 7C.

 

"Best sunshine typically in north-western England & Wales, also central-western Scotland, temperatures 12 or 13C in sunny spots.

 

"Any clearer spells overnight will lead to slight frosts, temperatures dipping just below zero in rural areas."

 

Easter

 

With the Easter weekend looming at the end of the week, will the UK be preparing for barbecues and walking trips, or is the typical Bank Holiday weather set to batter its way through the country?

 

Mr Nicholson said: "Toward the Easter weekend, indications favour a gradual breakdown to more changeable weather for the rest of March.

 

"Temperatures may rise by Good Friday as winds become south-westerly, highs perhaps 15C.

 

"Atlantic fronts will threaten rain spreading in from the west over the Easter Weekend, and continuing into the final few days of March - mixed conditions are expected, bringing some brighter and warmer days, but some wetter days are likely.

 

"Some heavy bursts are possible at times, particularly in west & south-western regions."
