The spring sunshine we’ve been enjoying across Merseyside will improve over the Easter weekend, when UK temperatures could soar as high as in Barcelona on what could be the hottest day of the year so far.
The warm weather is due to peak on Easter Sunday when forecasters say the mercury could reach 18°C - hotter than Monaco in the south of France.
Liverpool looks set to fall just short of that UK high but we can still expect to hit around 16°C on Saturday and Easter Sunday as temperatures ramp up from a bright and sunny Good Friday.
Grahame Madge, of theMet Office, said it could be possible to be the “warmest day of the year” on April 9, beating the 17.8°C recorded so far. He added: “For people planning anything over the weekend then Monday is probably going to be the most unsettled of the days but overall it’s going to be sunny and fine.”
