Wirral hotter than Barcelona during Easter weekend but public warned to stay at home


Above average temperatures are set to warm up Wirral through the start of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

Although it is forecast to be a mostly cloudy day, Good Friday will see temperatures soar to over 20C, which means it will be warmer than Barcelona.

Saturday will see more sunshine with temperatures again around the 20C mark.

However, temperatures are set to drop dramatically by Sunday as highs of 11C are forecast for Wirral.


Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders, said; “the Easter weekend starts dry and warm for many with temperatures possibly reaching as high as 24C in parts of London and the south east on Bank Holiday Friday and Saturday also.

“As the weekend continues there is an increasing risk of showers, some of which could be heavy or thundery. 

“By the start of next week, although it will be drier and sunnier again it will definitely feel cooler with temperatures reaching the mid-teens at best.”

Although the weather will be nice over the next few days it’s important to remember to stay at home.

Do not go out to meet others, even friends or family, as it is possible to spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home), always stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people and wash your hands as soon as you return home.
