There is a whole host of things to do for the rest of this week and over the weekend as lockdown restrictions were eased in England on Monday, April 12, under the next stage of the government’s roadmap plan.

Pubs and restaurants opened on Monday, and luckily the weather will stay mostly dry for the remainder of the week, which is good news for eager pub-goers hoping to visit the beer garden.

Temperatures will start to become closer to the average for this time of year, with clearer skies causing warm temperatures by day but allowing temperatures to drop overnight, meaning frost is still possible.

Despite temperatures remaining around the ten degrees Celcius mark, the sunshine brings a real warmth, but the slight wind can make it feel distinctively chilly in shaded areas.

It’ll be rather cold tonight with widespread frost forecast as temperatures drop to around 0 degrees Celcius and we could even see patches of freezing fog by dawn in some areas of the city.

Thursday will be filled with plenty of sunshine lasting through the morning and mid-afternoon before turning cloudy later into the day around 3 pm, with a risk of isolated showers and frost appearing overnight.

Temperatures will peak at a maximum of 13 degrees for the rest of the week, and we’ll see lows of around 0 degrees Celcius at night.

As we head into Monday, temperatures will begin to rise again to a maximum of 15 degrees Celcius.
