"Temperatures will reach into the low 20s Celsius quite widely and there's a good chance some places in the south could see temperatures peaking around 23 Celsius". A warm front will allow highs to still warm into the low-70s before a cold front swings through during the early afternoon.
Recent forecasts herald a change of pace, however, and it looks like the Summer switch is just around the corner, but not for long!
The highest temperature recorded over an Easter weekend has been reached four times, with Heathrow (London), Mildenhall (Suffolk) and Wisley (Surrey) recording 27.8 Celsius in 1949 and once again in Wisley in 2011.
"It is certainly warming up for the Bank Holiday weekend". The temperature averages 14 degrees on a "normal" April 21.
Saturday is a soggy day with breezy conditions and mild temperatures. According to the national meteorological service, we're looking at highs of 17 degrees - which, in comparison to recent lows sounds pretty balmy.
Comparatively, major holiday destinations in Europe are falling a little below expectations in terms of weather for the coming weekend.
Lanzarote: Friday - 19 degrees, Saturday - 20 degrees, Sunday - 20 degrees. We should stay dry through Saturday and Easter Sunday, too, but with cooler temperatures.
Ibiza: Friday - 17 degrees, Saturday - 18 degrees, Sunday - 18 degrees.
"It looks like the weather in the South West will be warm and sunny", said the Met Office's Bonnie Diamond. "With this uncertainty in mind, our advice is to keep up to date with the latest forecast if you are making plans".
