Caravanners will be happy to hear the latest forecasts from the Met Office predict glorious sunshine across the UK over the Easter break.
The idea of freezing families huddled in their caravans to avoid the usual British weather during the holidays is all just a bad memory with barometers set to clock up to 19 degrees over the Easter weekend.
Forecasters say the UK temperatures will beat those in the Costa Del Sol, which will experience cloud and showers while downpours are expected in Spain, France and Italy throughout the week.
Chief forecaster at the Met Office, Bob Wilderspin highlighted how the dry and warm weather will provide ideal conditions for getting out and about this Easter. He said: “There will be a lot of decent weather to come through the Easter weekend and with temperatures close or above average, it will feel pleasant in any sunshine.”
Supermarkets have reported increases in fish sales rather than the traditional lamb joint usually enjoyed over Easter, as people plan more outdoor lunches.
With major roads being unlocked for holiday travellers by the Highways Agency, those who plan to caravan at home are going to see weather that would only be topped to Portugal or Morocco.
