Spring is finally here!, which means flowers start to bloom and days gradually start to get longer than nights.
But what will the weather bring over the next few weeks on Merseyside..
Current forecasts point to a mostly cloudy week with the chance of some brighter spells and temperatures around average.
By easter weekend showers are expected to arrive with some bright interludes.
The Met Office say: “The Easter period and the following week are likely to be unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by some dry and bright interludes.
“It is also expected to become windy with gales at times, with the wettest and windiest conditions probably occurring in the west and northwest.
“Temperatures are expected to vary around average, best generally in the east, often rather cold in the west and northwest”.

The start of spring got off to a sunny start on Sunday but the start of April is expected to be unsettled and windy at times with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by some dry and bright interludes.
Overall temperatures should be near or somewhat below normal although day to day fluctuations are expected, which could be quite marked as is usual in April.
