The UK can finally prepare for some warmer weather in the coming weeks, a meteorologist has revealed.
After a particularly wet March, Brits could expect to bathe in 20C sunshine by the end of the Easter weekend.
A northerly breeze will be heading to the UK over Ireland in the lead-up to Easter, which will hopefully then settle down.
Combined with the angle of the sun, which is more favourable for warmer weather than in previous months, there's a much higher chance of warmer weather, according to British Weather Services' senior meteorological consultant, Jim Dale.
The south and east of England were most likely to enjoy the warmer climate, he said.
But, even some parts of Scotland could see temperatures top 20C by Easter Monday, and the few days that follow, Jim added.
"We went through February and it was dry and predominantly mild. When I say it was dry, it was exceptionally dry in the southeast, so we had to make that up," he told the Mirror.
"We're starting to come out of it just in time for Easter, and we're likely to see some high pressure come on just before Good Friday.
"It's not a given, but there are good signs that this kind of change of fortunes will arrive just in time for Easter.
"If we give it some time - and I'm not just talking about Good Friday or the Saturday, but certainly the back end of the bank holiday weekend and the week that follows for the school holidays - it does look like it might well become warmer."
It wouldn't be unusual for an April to see a warmer blast following a chilly spell, however.
It's a swing month, which essentially means it could go in either direction, he said.
Jim said: "The only other thing to mention is that the sun's angle is getting such that when you get sunshine - even on a northerly airstream - it gets quite warm.
"So I would expect that as we go through the Easter period, I would expect us to nudge the 20-degree mark in the south and east, and maybe even the north into eastern Scotland.
"That's a bit of conjecture, and maybe a bit of hope, but it wouldn't be that unusual."
The warm spell would follow a particularly cold and wet March, which is likely to spill into the next week, Jim added.
Some areas of the UK might even be facing the looming threat of snow before Easter.
