Many Hertfordshire residents are looking forward to a long weekend, but can we expect some sunshine for the Easter bank holiday?

Some might be thinking of hitting the pub gardens for a drink with friends, but that appears to be wishful thinking, with the March chill still in the air.

Friday will see highs of 12° before lows of 5° overnight, but there is a chance of rain between midday and 3pm.

Saturday looks set to be dry, with highs of 12° again, before dropping to 4° during the night.

Sunday is likely to see the best weather of the weekend, with temperatures hitting 13°, no rain predicted and uninterrupted sunshine in the afternoon.

Things take a turn on Monday as the bank holiday comes to an end, with rain set to fall throughout the day and highs of just 10°.
