Colder air will sweep across Merseyside and the UK from Friday, bringing cloud, rain and colder temperatures.

High pressure that has allowed the region to bask in 20C temperatures will slowly fade away, with a low pressure system taking it’s place, meaning a more unsettled theme to the weather.

There will be a fine start to Friday but turning progressively more unsettled with showers later.

Further rain or showers likely during the weekend, though with some sunshine too.

At the weekend temperatures will have fallen by 10C, so compared to Wednesday’s high of 20.6C on Wirral it will be feeling much colder. The weekends maximum temperature is expected to be around 13C.

Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Chris Tubbs, said: “After a warm and sunny start to April for most of us, the change to cooler, more unsettled weather will be a real feature of the weather this weekend and also into next week.

He added: “However, this change is fairly typical of spring weather, with some April showers on the way”


Conditions will be colder than of late, with temperatures below average for everyone, and feeling noticeably colder than recent days, especially in rain and stronger winds. The week will start with highs of only 9C.

Maybe time to dust off the coat..
