Summer sunshine is expected this weekend with temperatures predicted to hit 22C tomorrow. The Met Office has said warmer conditions are on the way with spring showers easing and sunshine on the way as high pressure moves in from the west.

In Devon and Cornwall, it is forecast to be dry today, with plenty of sunshine this morning. However, the Met Office said “a little cloud” will “bubble up” during the afternoon, although there will still be warm sunny spells with a maximum temperature of 21C.

The cloud will disperse this evening to bring late sunshine. It will be dry overnight with clear skies, but a few mist patches, and a minimum temperature of 12C.

Tomorrow is predicted to be sunny and warm with light winds. A veil of high cloud will turn the sunshine hazy in places during the afternoon, the Met Office said, with temperature hitting a high of 22C.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said that “for large chunks over the weekend, it is going to feel pretty summery” – and there is a “decent amount of sunshine to come through this weekend”.

The start of the week will be more changeable, with cloud, and even some drizzle, possible on Monday. But Tuesday will be brighter and warmer, before more cloud and patchy rain arrives on Wednesday.
