UK Set To Be Hotter Than Ibiza During The Easter Weekend

It's one thing us Brits love a good old natter about - yep, the weather, obviously. We talk about it with strangers, friends and grandparents (of course).

So, you'll no doubt be delighted to read that the UK is set to be enjoying temperatures of 20C during the Easter bank holiday weekend. Think of the day drinks that can be consumed, people.

According to Holiday Weather, the White Island of Ibiza is getting geared up to experience temperatures of between 14.5C and 16.5C. They could rise to 20C but that isn't expected until the end of April. Ner ner na ner ner to you, Ibiza.

There may be a chilly start to the week for us on UK soil though, according to Met Office meteorologist Helen Roberts who told Metro that temperatures will struggle to get into double figures.

But, by Thursday they will begin to rise into the high teens. Just what we like to hear.

Helen told the publication: "We could see temperatures up to 20C in some places, but it will be warm across the board for Easter."

If you're someone who likes a gamble, some bookies have actually slashed odds on it being the warmest spring ever. Bookmakers aren't often wrong about stuff - they'd be out of a job if they were.

The Met Office said: "For March-May, above-average temperatures are more likely than below-average.

"The probability UK average temperatures will fall into the warmest of our five categories is 50 per cent. The coldest category is 10 per cent.

"Some long-range prediction systems indicate an increased chance of high pressure to the south of the UK."

Brian Gaze, a forecaster from The Weather Outlook, told The Sun: "With computer models strongly favouring a warm spring, there is potential for the record for the hottest spring to be challenged.

"Highs of 26C are likely in April. Plumes of warm air from Africa are expected.

"And there is an increased chance of a hot and settled summer due to the trend for more high pressure, which brings hot conditions in summer."

But there's a catch - because, when is there not? Apparently, as per usual, if you live in the North West, you might not see the best of the weather.

There's a good chance some of the folks in the North and West might get some rain, in fact. Oh brilliant, just bloody brilliant.

Ah, bollocks to the weather. We can still sit in the pub, get a beer and enjoy the bank holiday as it deserves to be enjoyed.
