Brits are expecting sunnier and drier weather this week, with temperatures around 17C before falling in early May.

With mercury rising to a sweltering 23C over Easter weekend, the temperature may not have hit the same highs but was still warm.

And it’s been dry, with parts of central and south-east England receiving just 30% of usual rainfall in April so far.

People are able to go outdoors and to the beaches as the temperature in parts of the UK is expected to remain in the late teens through the weekend.

BBC weather forecaster Helen Willets said: “The start of the week brought a shower or two but no rain to speak of and so the theme of dry April continues, particularly for England and Wales.

“Some areas have received just 30% of average April rainfall so far. Only Scotland has seen its average. And with that, there are very few signs of further rain for the rest of the month.

“So it looks like it’s going to be another dry April, the third in a row, but probably not quite as dry as last April.”

The outlook this week is sunny and dry during the day, but will be cold at night and into the early morning where temperatures will hover near 0C.

It’s supposed to be up to 17 degrees today after a cold start to the day.

“Under the clear skies, again something we’ve seen, temperatures will drop close enough to freezing to get a hint of grass frost,” Ms Willets said.

“Maybe not quite as chilly from Tuesday evening to Wednesday morning but on another day on Wednesday when we’re going to see quite a bit of cloud in the sky notice the winds are easing a little so they’re getting caught under our high pressure that is the reason for all this dry weather.”

She continued: “Once again on Thursday where we are seeing the continued sunshine then there is a good chance we will see temperatures of 16C or 17C but there is very little sign of either over the next week Rain, look at that, and temperatures are dropping too, especially in the north, so not only dry, but it’s getting colder as we head into May.”
