Deputy Chief Operational Meteorologist Dan Harris said, “An active frontal zone will advance eastwards bringing strong winds and heavy rain.

“Gusts of 45 to 55 mph are likely quite widely, with exposed coastal areas likely to see more frequent gusts of 55 to 65 mph.


“The largest rainfall totals on Saturday are expected over north-western areas. Here we’re likely to see 20 to 40 mm widely and perhaps as much as 50 mm in exposed sites.”

The rest of Easter weekend will bring a mix of sunshine and heavy, possibly blustery showers, with not much change in the weather as we head into Bank Holiday Monday.
