IT looks like you can start making some outdoor plans for the Easter bank holiday as Warrington is set to be hotter than Ibiza this weekend.

The current forecast is for highs of 22 degrees with sunshine forecast throughout the weekend until around 4pm on Monday.

Thanks to high pressure over Scandinavia, the outlook is for a 'good deal' of dry and settled weather as well as sunny spells too.

Temperatures will get to 21 degrees on Good Friday before creeping up to 22 degrees on Saturday and 20 on Easter Sunday.

It's not looking as good for anyone who decided to venture abroad for the Easter break.

In Menorca rain is forecast for Easter Sunday and Monday with temperatures only reaching 18 degrees while in Ibiza light rain showers is forecast for every day of the Easter break with temperatures getting up to 18 degrees.

Forecaster Simon Partridge added: “After there was a chilly spell this weekend, we are going to see temperatures gradually increase through the week.

“By the weekend we could see in parts of the country temperatures of around 20C (68F), or just above.”

The highest temperature ever recorded for an Easter weekend is 27.8C (82F) which occurred in two different years.

The first was in Heathrow, west London and Mildenhall, Suffolk in 1949 and the second was recorded Wisley, Surrey in 2011.
