Weatherquest meteorologist Dan Holley said: "There's a bit of dry weather around over the Easter weekend, though a wave of high pressure means that there could be some isolated showers.

"Saturday is likely to be the sunniest day of the weekend while Sunday night and Monday might see a few showers coming in, with a greater chance on Monday."

He added: "Temperatures are looking at 18-19 degrees on Thursday, though on Friday, we'll have an easterly breeze, which will keep the coast cooler. 

"Inland temperatures will still be around 17 degrees — higher temperatures are expected in the west of the county throughout the weekend."
