Brits are set for milder weather over the weekend, where temperatures will hit 18C, making it warmer and drier than the Algarve.

While many have traveled abroad over the Easter holidays, the UK weather has held up against many of the traditional tourist hotspots.

It rained heavily in Spain and Portugal, while the same is expected to happen in France over the weekend. This means that temperatures in the Algarve will not rise above 17°C and there will be many showers.

In contrast, mercury rose to 19C in Flintshire on Friday, with the best temperatures in western Britain as winds bring colder conditions to the east.

After the Easter holidays, during which the hottest temperature of the year so far was 23 degrees, people are drawn outside again this weekend to sunbathe in the pleasant sun. The beaches will be just as busy as the bar gardens.

BBC weather forecaster Louise Lear said: “Once again much dry weather across the UK. Cloudy skies to the south first, clearer skies to the north and west hence a cooler start here.

“This easterly thrust will continue to bring fairly heavy clouds first and thick enough for a few showers across the Midlands, South Wales and South West England. Eventually the cloud should clear and the sunshine will come through, but the best of the sunshine is again reserved for North West England, West Scotland and Northern Ireland.”

She continued: “Breezy, cooler here along this east coast, 12C or 13C but with some sunshine we could see 16C to 18C as an afternoon high.

“Now this low pressure is still causing some problems across France, potentially leading to heavy snowfall late in the season in the Alps. Lots of isobars across the UK, the wind is still a feature but this north west wind can clear the clouds a little quicker on Sunday allowing more sunshine to get through.

While the outlook for next week isn’t that promising as the mercury will drop, there should still be plenty of sunshine.

“Temperatures could be colder than average next week despite some night frosts but we’re losing wind on Tuesday and Wednesday so some good news and there’s some sunshine coming through too,” Ms Lear said.
