The high humidity rate means temperatures will seem much warmer than it actually is.

Friday, April 2 will be slightly cooler, with forecasters expecting highs of 15C in the south west of England but around 16C in the south east of England and up to 15C in parts of the north.

Humidity levels are also set to be much lower, with highs of 80 percent forecast.

They said: “Going into April, settled conditions are likely to continue in southern and eastern areas, where a good deal of dry and bright weather will occur.

“The weather in the northwest will be changeable and unsettled, and there is a slight possibility that some of the wet and windy weather may push southwards into central areas at times, allowing clearer but showery weather into the northwest. Conditions look to be drier than average for most.

“Temperatures are expected to be near to or milder than average, with any cooler interludes likely to be short-lived, and mostly in the north.

“With the year progressing and temperatures warming, there is an increased chance of afternoon showers, even in the settled southeast.”

Netweather forecasters also expect the start of April to be characterised by drier, sunnier conditions.

For the period March 29 – April 4, they said: “Perhaps turning drier and sunnier at the end of the period with milder more spring-like days.”
