Long-range forecast

In its long range forecast covering April 11 to April 20, the Met Office says: “Changeable conditions are expected for most areas early in this period.

“There will be a mixture of sunny spells and showers for most parts of the country.

“The west and northwest have the greatest chance of seeing any spells of more prolonged rain and stronger winds.

“Temperatures will likely still be below average at first, slowly recovering back to closer to average.

“Confidence becomes low in the prevailing weather patterns during mid-April.

“There are most likely to be further spells of unsettled weather with some showers or longer spells of rain crossing all parts of the UK.

“This will be interspersed with drier and brighter interludes.

“Temperatures are expected to be at or slightly below average for this time of year by the end of the period.”

So, no heatwave is forecast – but grab your coat, wrap up warm and support your local traders and businesses as they reopen.
