While Easter Sunday brought bright sunshine for some and highs of 23C were hit in south-east England on Good Friday, the mini-heatwave is expected to come to a crashing end
Temperatures could drop to as low as 7C today after a weekend Bank Holiday fire.
On Easter Sunday, temperatures reached 19C for some, while in south-east England mercury rose to as high as 23C – the hottest day of the year so far.
Today, however, the mini-heatwave will come to a crashing end as temperatures drop.
Temperatures could reach as high as 7C in London on Monday – with highs of 15C.
In Wales, some could see a low of just 3C.
As we get further into the week, there will be more “cooler and more unsettled” weather in most parts, according to the Met Office.
While some sunshine is expected in the southeast, some parts will see showers and cloud cover for most of the day.
According to the Met Office, Monday to Wednesday will be “cooler and more choppy”, with some showers forecast along with sunny spells, making it “chilly” in the north.
The Weather Service has also forecast some rain for the middle of next week, but with temperatures falling to “average” after Easter weekend highs.
The Met Office said: “Many places on Wednesday will be dry with clear or sunny spells, breezy.
“Showers may break out in central and southern areas, with a risk of early-day rains for the west.
“Overall Thursday and Friday will continue in a similar theme, still plenty of dry weather with sunny spells but also some showers or rainy spells and temperatures close to normal.
“Thereafter continued to be variable with intermittent rainfall, particularly in the south and west, perhaps becoming more consistent towards the end of the period.
“Winds are expected to remain generally light with the risk of later strong winds, particularly to the south and west.
