Unsettled weather set to continue
Monday 09 April 2012
The grim weather which saw most of Britain endure an overcast Easter looks set to continue, according to forecasters.
Michael Dukes, a forecaster with MeteoGroup UK, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "We should be careful about saying that this is unwelcome weather - all of the water boards are desperate for it to carry on.
"The rest of the week will be unsettled. The best chance of sunshine will be in the mornings with showers in the afternoon. The northern hills could see snow.
"Daily temperatures will be around the 9C to 13C mark, dropping off over the weekend when they could fall to 7C to 11C with patchy frosts occurring in places.
"At the moment the winds are coming from the north and the north-west which means that they are particularly cool."
Mr Dukes offered a glimmer of hope when he added: "The good news is that looking back over recent years, you could make a vague link between good Aprils and disappointing summers, although that is an observation, not a forecast."
