Many parts of the country are set to see a soar in temperatures this weekend.

However, warm weather has promoted a fresh health warning by the Government, inlcuding Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Some areas will reach temperatures as high as 20C on Sunday (April 5), accompanied by bright, sunny skies, although some parts may experience rain and wind at times.

The Met Office expects that, on Saturday (April 4), most places throughout the UK will be dry with patchy cloud and a “good deal of sunshine”.

It will feel “warmer than recently, though turning windy in the west.”

“Sunday dry for many with warm sunshine in the east,” the forecaster adds.

In the south of the UK, any mist or fog will soon clear, where it will then be “dry with some spells of hazy sunshine. Feeling warmer as a southerly breeze picks up.

“Dry, warm and breezy with long sunny periods on Sunday.”

HEALTH WARNING: Coronavirus and staying at home

Last week the Met Office reminded the public to “please remember, despite the sunny weather, during this Coronavirus crisis the Government advice is to only go outside for food, health reasons or work, to stay two metres (6ft) away from other people and to wash your hands regularly.”

Current government guidance is to only leave the house for very limited purposes, which are:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible.
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household.
  • any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
  • travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home.
