Britain could enjoy hottest day of the year today as temperatures soar
| Last updated
Happy Easter everyone as our sunny Sunday might just turn out to be the hottest day of the year so far.
Getting sunburnt in April, how about that?
Brits will be more than welcome to the possibility of 18C temperatures potentially hitting parts of the UK on Sunday.
The Met Office said today (9 April) might overtake the previous warmest day of the year, which was 17.8C on 30 March in Suffolk.
However, they admitted that this year's record-breaking weather 'is not 100 percent'.
Senior Press Officer of the Met Office Grahame Madge said: "It could possibly be the warmest day of the year and beat the 17.8C that we have had so far.
"There is a possibility of 18C although it is not 100%.
"There will be three very fine days."
Met Office's Craig Snell also explained that for most of the UK 'it will be fairly sunny and temperatures may peak at around 18C'.
If some parts of the UK do reach 18C, that will be hotter than Greek islands Mykonos and Santorini.
Although the national weather service warned that tomorrow (10 April) is back to our more familiar wet and windy weather.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist Jason Kelly explained: "A change is on the way for the UK weather as the dry, settled, and in places warm conditions are replaced by a more unsettled weather pattern from Sunday afternoon.
"This change happens first for Northern Ireland and Scotland, where Sunday afternoon rain will be replaced by blustery showers overnight and into Monday.
"Elsewhere, a mainly dry, but increasingly cloudy day on Sunday, with rain arriving for parts of Wales and southwest England by evening.
"Rain spreads east across other areas into Monday, with showers following."
While Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Steven Keates also added: "The focus for the medium-range forecast is a low-pressure system that’s likely to develop in the Atlantic potentially bringing a period of high winds and heavy rain late on Tuesday and into Wednesday.
"While the precise location and depth of this low-pressure system is subject to some uncertainty, there’s a distinct possibility of some disruptive wind for parts of the UK, as well as potential for heavy rainfall and even some snow, though the latter probably confined to high ground in the north. Warnings may need to be issued once we have greater confidence in the depth and track of the low.
"Although subject to a large degree of uncertainty, gusts of wind could be as high as 60-70 mph in some exposed upland or coastal regions, with around 30-40mm of rain possible for some areas. Coastlines, especially in the west and south, will also likely experience some large waves during the passage of this system."
