Wrexham looks set to enjoy a Bank Holiday weekend of warm weather and sunshine.

In what has been a rather wet and chilly April so far, current Met Office forecasts for the next four days shows that there will be highs of 20C across the county borough.

Conditions are set to be cloudy on with sunny intervals on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday, however temperatures are forecast to average a warm 20C across the three days.

But is is expected to be cooler in the evenings, with temperatures dropping down to 7C and 9C.

For those hoping for some sunshine, Bank Holiday Monday looks set to be the brightest day of the weekend with highs of 19C.

Again the evenings are set to drop down to cooler temperatures with lows of 7C.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Steve Willington said: “From Wednesday (April 17) temperatures will start to rise day by day and with the sun getting stronger at this time of year, it’s going to feel warm or very warm by the time we get to Good Friday and Easter Saturday.

“Temperatures will reach into the low 20s Celsius quite widely and there’s a good chance some places in the south could see temperatures peaking around 23 Celsius.

“With temperatures usually around 10 to 13 Celsius at this time of year, it’s certainly going to be significantly warmer than average this Easter weekend and quite a contrast to the colder weather we have seen so far this month.”

However, the warm and sunny weather might not stick around for everyone through the whole weekend.

Steve Willington continued: “It currently looks like more changeable and cooler weather will arrive from the northwest from Easter Sunday, however there remains the chance that southeastern parts of the country could remain warm and settled into Easter Monday.

“With this uncertainty in mind, our advice is to keep up to date with the latest forecast if you are making plans.”

The highest temperature recorded over an Easter weekend has been reached four times, with Heathrow (London), Mildenhall (Suffolk) and Wisley (Surrey) recording 27.8 Celsius in 1949 and once again in Wisley in 2011.
