THE fine weather looks set to come to an end - just in time for the Easter weekend.

While today and tomorrow will see more sunshine and temperatures rising to 18 or 19C, Thursday and Good Friday are likely to see more cloud and temperatures slipping to 16C.

Then they will fall to 14C on Saturday, with some rain, and then 12C on Easter Sunday with more cloud, and fall again on Easter Monday to just 10C.

While the cooler, cloudier weather will disappoint many, it should at least reduce the risk of groups of people gathering in parks and open spaces in breach of social distancing rules.

Forecasters expect more sunshine to return next week, after the bank holiday is over, with temperatures recovering to about 13C.
