Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts...

Brits will get to enjoy a spell of sunshine this weekend before an Easter washout.

According to the Met Office, some parts of the UK will experience some warm weather on Saturday (April 13) and Sunday (April 14).

However, heavy rain is expected to arrive during the Easter weekend, especially in the western parts of the UK.

On Saturday, temperatures could fall as low as 8C in some places on the east coast, with the warmest places likely to be on the west coast.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, it will be less sunny but still dry.

However, when it comes to the Easter weekend, Brits will have to prepare for heavy rain.

It's looking like we could see a bit of rain over Easter, especially in the western parts of the UK.

Met Office forecaster Richard Miles told The Sun Online: "It's looking like we could see a bit of rain over Easter, especially in the western parts of the UK.

"Temperatures could be slightly above average for the weekend itself... I wouldn't rule out snow in parts of Scotland."

It comes after it was predicted that temperatures could reach mid-20s towards the end of April and into the beginning of May.

Meteorologist Brian Gaze recently said: "Daytime temperatures will be below average and nights are likely to be particularly cold for mid April with widespread frosts.

"Temperatures could dip down to -5C locally, for example in the Welsh valleys on Saturday and Sunday morning. On the plus side there should be a lot of bright sunshine, although in the east scattered wintry showers are possible this weekend."

Friday got off to a cold and frosty start in places, however, it's expected to stay dry and sunny for most.

The sunniest spots will be in the west, with temperatures of 10C to 11C in Belfast and Glasgow.

From next week, it will become windier in the north and west, with patchy rain possibly arriving in the west next week.
