Although the weather will be warm throughout Sunday there is a risk of the wet weather returning, as thunderstorms could lead to a thundery breakdown.

The Met Office forecast says: “Mostly sunny for many today. Feeling warm in the sunshine with light winds and temperature above average for April. Maximum temperature 22 °C”.

“Whilst Friday may start a little cloudy, for many it will turn warm and sunny again. However the cloud may linger around coastal areas with a maximum temperature 18 °C”.

“Saturday should be warm and sunny with only a small chance of a shower.

“Some showery rain is then more likely on Sunday, before a breezy, cool and unsettled Monday”.
