As Brits continue in lockdown for another three weeks, the weather will be getting warmer and peaking on Thursday (April 23).
London and the South East will enjoy the warmest weather on Tuesday afternoon (April 21).

Hottest April on record?
It’s been suggested this month’s overall average could be the highest since records began in 1659.

“But there will be plenty of warm weather before then.”
According to the Met Office’s forecast for this week, the UK will be “clear, sunny and increasingly warm for most by day, and clear but chilly by night”.
The wind will “ease and allow overnight mist and fog to become more prevalent”.
Meanwhile, BBC meteorologist Chris Fawkes said cities such as Birmingham, Cardiff and Liverpool will also hit the 20s.
He said: “That’s warmer than it often is in July, so we are doing pretty well as far as those temperatures go.

“It’s probably going to stay dry for the most part on Friday, perhaps even into the weekend.
“But there’s a tendency as we head into the weekend for there being a little bit more in the way of cloud and there could be a few showers.”
In conclusion, Brian Gaze, a forecaster from The Weather Outlook, told The Express: “The hottest April since records began is on the cards in central England.
“It’s an awesome April, with temperatures over 10C above average at times, and 21-23C sunshine expected at times this week.”
