Easter Sunday looks set to be the warmest day of the weekend, as temperatures are predicted to reach highs of 13°C along with plenty of sunshine.

But the Met Office has predicted that the weather will turn in the early hours of Easter Monday, with temperatures plummeting to as low as -3C and light snow expected between 1am and 5am.

The day does look set to pick up though, with sunny spells predicted throughout the day – although further snow showers are expected in the evening.

Temperatures on Monday are expected to reach highs of just 5C, making it a cold one if families have plans to meet up outdoors now that the lockdown rules have been eased.
