Thankfully, it looks as though it's going to stay dry over the next week or so, but temperatures are going to remain around the April average at between 10 - 12 degrees C.

When the sun is out it will feel warmer, but you can be sure you'll feel the chill during frequent cloudy spells - so wrapping up with layers would be the advice.

Today (Monday) in Leeds, temperatures will reach a high of 10C, with a less than five per cent chance of rain throughout the day, with a sunny start changing to a cloudier afternoon.

Met Office UK long range weather forecast (Friday April 16 - Sunday April 25):

"The most likely scenario for the start of this period is for mainly settled conditions to be in place across the country with high pressure dominating.

"Unsettled conditions with rain showers may affect the northwest during the weekend and at times through the rest of this period, with southeastern areas likely remaining drier and brighter.

"Temperatures will likely remain at or slightly below average at first, before recovering to potentially slightly above average at times.

"Confidence decreases after this, however towards the end of this period it will likely be turning less unsettled with more dry and bright interludes.

"Generally, it is expected to feel rather warm, although temperatures could be suppressed in wetter areas."
