Fears rain and temperature dive to hit Brits next week as beer gardens reopen

The cold and wet April is threatening to spoil the easing of lockdown as temperatures are set to take a dive next week.

Pubs, bars and restaurants have finally opened their doors once again to revellers after having them closed shut for months due to the Covid pandemic.

The beginning of the month saw snow and icy conditions, with the first week recorded as the coldest April since 2013.

Now, unsettled weather is predicted to return next week with mercury taking another dip, which could ruin plans for Brits to meet up with friends and family in their local beer gardens.

According to the BBC long range weather forecast, the temperatures will dive towards the end of next week.

The chill of winter still remains in place, especially for Monday night, with the UK and mainland Europe experiencing lower than average temperatures.

For today (Tuesday), Brits will wake up to a chilly and frosty start with rain battering the western parts of the country and Northern Ireland.

Moving onto the other parts of the week, the majority of the UK will be double figures with highs of 12C in southern parts and central London.

For this weekend a weather front will attempt to push in but high pressure will hold it off, with a band of rain drenching the Republic of Ireland before moving into Northern Ireland.

Saturday will see the sunniest spells and warmest weather, with 13C for some lucky Brits in the south and midlands.

However, a high-pressure front will dominate next week, most likely to bring colder and wintry conditions.

The 'winter' feeling isn't going anywhere soon if weather forecasts are to go by. At some point, the icy breeze will be lifted with dry and sunshine but it may not last that long.

Matt Taylor, meteorologist for the BBC said: "Perhaps more likely the high pressure will be a bit further west of the UK and that allows northerly air to flow and dominate, and temperatures to drop yet again.

"It does look like temperatures will temporarily lift at the start of next week, most will stay dry again."

He added: "But colder conditions could set in and that feel of winter to continue later in the week."
