The outlook for the Easter period is mixed with a dry start followed by unsettled weather and an increasing risk of showers or longer spells of rain spreading northwards. Scotland may miss the worst of the rain.
Good Friday should be fine for most, although cloudier and chillier at times in eastern counties with the chance of some drizzle near the coast. Highest temperatures are likely to be in the west and Northern Ireland, reaching close to 16C (61F).
Clearing skies tonight will lead to a cold start on Saturday morning with a patchy frost in places. The rest of the day should be dry with variable amounts of cloud, and in the east probably a little warmer than today.
By Easter Sunday the risk of showers or longer spells of rain is expected to become widespread in southern and central regions with dry weather continuing in the north. Showery rain is likely on Bank holiday Monday, but in the east there could be some brighter and warmer spells.
Keep checking the forecasts and rainfall radar through the Easter period as the details are likely to change. Buzz will take another look at the outlook later today.
