Youngsters on egg hunts over the bank holiday weekend will be skipping through the showers for soggy choccy as forecasters predict a spell of unsettled, showery weather.

While last Easter was white this year's will be wet according to Chris Bell, forecaster with University of East Anglia based Weatherquest.

He said: “It is going to be quite unsettled with low pressure moving over the whole of Britain. There will be a band of rain spreading on through the day on Friday with a low over Saturday and Sunday bringing showers.

“It is not going to be particularly cold but not particularly warm either. Temperatures will be a touch below average, at around 9 degrees C during the day and three to four degrees C overnight.

“At the moment Monday is looking the most hopeful, and it may even start to dry out later on Sunday. There will be some sunny spells mixed in but not for any prolonged period.”

The gloomy forecast means indoor attractions are most likely to benefit and could give traders dependent on tourism a poor start to the season just as they need it most.
