Wednesday 10/4/24
A ridge of high pressure moves away eastwards as fronts come back in from the Atlantic. A dry start for eastern counties gives way to thickening cloud. Rain already into western areas in the morning becomes more widespread, but small amounts reach the southeast. Most persistent heaviest rain for western Scotland, northwest England and western Ireland. Showers follow later. Breezy. Highs 10 to 15C.

Thursday 11/4/24
High pressure toward the south. Mild southwesterlies. Weak fronts draped over the country bring a fair amount of cloud, plus patchy rain and drizzle over western regions. Some steadier rain may develop. Drier and brighter toward eastern regions, feeling pleasantly warm in any sunshine. Highs 12 to 19C.

Friday 12/4/24
Southwesterly breezes continue. High pressure to the south keeps most of central and southern England and Wales dry with occasional sunshine. Periods of rain for Scotland and Northern Ireland. A little rain for northwest England. Cloud and patchy drizzle for northwest Wales. Feeling warm south and east. Highs 13 to 20C.
