Blackpool Easter bank holiday weekend weather: Temperatures set to soar

Warming up for Easter

The UK is set to bask in sunshine over the Easter weekend with record high temperatures expected on Sunday and Monday.

The glorious weather looks set to end on Tuesday - possibly with thunderstorms. "Between Friday and early Sunday, rainfall totals are expected to climb between 1.5" -2" (again, this is a 3-day forecast total).

Hundreds of demonstrators will be in London this weekend, as part of the Extinction Rebellion protest over climate change.

Temperatures could reach into the mid twenties this weekend as the winds fall light. It will still be around 12C by 10pm, with an overnight temperature of 10C.

The record temperature for Easter Sunday in the United Kingdom is 25.3C reached in Solent, Hampshire in April 2011.

Deputy Commissioner Miller said the 37-year-old suspect was "known to police", who are now looking into his background. A 37-year-old man from New Jersey, later identified by police as Marc Lamparello, was recently taken into custody.

"Along those northeastern coast lines, where we've got an onshore breeze, we could see temperatures a little bit lower - 19C - which is still good for the time of year".

The evening will be clear and dry, with the temperature only dipping slightly to 12C by 10pm. The temperature will reach its peak of 17C by around 1pm and remain so throughout the rest of the afternoon.

Met Office meteorologist Sophie Yeomans said it was unlikely the country would have higher temperatures than this.

Steve Willington continued: "It now looks like more changeable and cooler weather will arrive from the northwest from Easter Sunday, however there remains the chance that southeastern parts of the country could remain warm and settled into Easter Monday". Although showers are in the forecast for most of the holiday weekend, the biggest risk for a steadier period of rain is Saturday night into early Sunday.
