Otherwise, as we move toward Easter, it finally looks like a rain-free weekend!

Thursday is the day we need to watch.

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that storms are expected to produce some large hail, maybe up to golf ball size, and heavy rains around the area. There is a 40% chance of scattered showers.

MONDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy, with a 20% chance for a few spotty showers.

With winds generally coming from a colder northeasterly direction this April, the weather in the United Kingdom so far has been rather boring and dry, with temperatures generally below average for the time of year.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 70.

The highest tides of the month are taking place this weekend, but because the winds are coming from the south, it's likely any coastal flooding would be insignificant.

Jersey Met duty forecaster Fraser Ralston said the chance of mist or fog was unlikely too so those looking to get away from the Island or welcoming visitors for the long weekend should have few weather-related issues. The timing of the rain will be critical.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected late this afternoon and evening across portions of central, south-central and southeast Kansas.

Friday looks to have a shower here and there throughout the first part of the day, and then scattered showers after 2 PM. Things warm up again into the 70s early next week.

The warm weather is expected to last into next week at this stage.

"While many places will stay dry on Sunday, there will be a band of rain slipping across Scotland, the north-east and Northern Ireland through the early hours".
