Temperatures are expected to soar to 18C tomorrow in the south of England, danger of turning the Easter egg hunt into a chocolate mess.
Temperatures are expected to be up to 11C lower on Monday compared with their sunny Easter weekend, when bitter north winds move across the country.
The summer’s sunny weather comes as the public were urged to comply with the new rules and to only meet friends and family outdoors after restrictions were relaxed.
Winds will be key to Monday’s weather as, whilst some parts of southern England may reach highest highs of up to 7c, gusts of up to 90p / h can bring temperatures nearer freezing.
It comes as parts of Britain experienced a mini heatwave earlier this week, with the mercury hitting almost 37F (24C) on Wednesday – a peak unlikely to be repeated for Easter Sunday.
Snow warnings have been issued for northern Scotland, with up to 15cm at higher elevations.
The weather over Easter Sunday will be similar in Belfast and could see sunny spells and light rain later tonight, with a maximum of 12C (59F).
Yellow warnings from the weather bureau have been issued across Scotland until 10am Tuesday with wind speeds of up to 70mph predicted.
