Wednesday's First Warning Forecast: Showers and storms moving in

On Easter Sunday, look for a mix of clouds and sun with a shower or thunderstorm around, especially in the afternoon.

Although it may not be as wet this morning we have another storm quickly approaching and it will bring us more rain and wind today. There is still the possibility of a stray shower or thunderstorms Friday afternoon. High pressure will continue to sit to the south of the United Kingdom where it will be driest, while weak weather fronts could bring some rain and showers to more northern and eastern parts of the United Kingdom, with perhaps some sleet or snow over hills in the north.

Weather models show low pressure sweeping in from the Atlantic will continue to drive the "unsettled" conditions throughout the holiday weekend.

IPL 2017: Shane Watson-led RCB beat Delhi Daredevils in a thriller
The second match of the day in the ongoing IPL 2017 is being played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils. In the first half, RCB posted 157/8 courtesy a whirlwind innings from Jadhav which also ensured a mid-innings rescue.

South winds return today - only gusting over 20 miles per hour from time to time (so, we're not overly windy today - just a bit breezy at times).

The Easter weekend will begin with low presure to the north of the United Kingdom on Good Friday and this will take charge of the weather for much of the United Kingdom during the holiday weekend. A cold front crosses through very early in the morning and may produce a few spotty showers, otherwise, it's a cloudy start to the day. We did see warmer temperatures as daytime highs climbed into the mid 70s to the low 80s. Overnight lows should be in the mid to upper 50s. Highs will stay near 80 degrees on Friday.

The rain will finally be making its way out for the end of next week. Temperatures will slowly be warming through these days with highs reaching the middle 80s.
