According to the Evening Standard, Met Officer forecaster Mark Wilson said: "On Monday and Tuesday there will be dry and fine weather around and on Wednesday we could be seeing temperatures as high as 19C or 20C - which would make it the warmest day we have had so far this year."

However, according to the Independent, things will become more unsettled by Thursday.

The Met Office forecast for Friday 31 March to Sunday 9 April predicts unsettled weather to begin with, which may then be replaced by a return to more pleasant, balmier conditions.

It reads: "A rather more changeable and breezy pattern will be established across the UK by Friday, with rain slowly clearing eastern counties through the day.

"Sunshine and showers following this clearance; these continuing through Saturday, turning heavy and blustery at times in the north.

Over the next few days, we'll see further unsettled weather in the northwest, with outbreaks of rain and occasional showers. Some brighter spells are also possible here, but it will be often windy, with gales at times.

"Meanwhile, the driest and brightest conditions are expected in the south and east, where it will feel pleasantly warm.

"However, we are likely to see a good deal of settled and dry weather becoming established across the UK towards the end of the period though, especially in the south."
