According to Met Eireann, temperatures will rise throughout the week.

The only areas where it may not reach those heights are the North West and some parts of the east coast on Sunday due to clouds.

Parts of the United Kingdom will be hotter than some of Europe's top holiday destinations over the Easter weekend, with temperatures exceeding 20C (68F).

It could be time to get those sunglasses out and make the most of the sunny weather, with highs of 17 degrees predicted on Friday, and highs of 18 degrees predicted for Saturday.

Britain will be warmer than areas of the Mediterranean with high pressure likely to dominate the weather as the week progresses.

"For the rest of April, the weather looks likely to become more mixed with some rain at times, particularly in the west and northwest".

Mr Partridge said: 'After there was a chilly spell this weekend, we are going to see temperatures gradually increase through the week. Sunday looks a little more unsettled but there's more uncertainty in the forecast for early next week at this point'.

Bookies Ladbrokes revealed it's now odds on at 5/6 that this year's Easter weekend goes down in history as the hottest ever in the UK.

"Temperatures in the mid teens are plausible for Easter week".
