Suffolk and Essex could see record Easter temperatures

The other warmest Easter weekend days include temperatures of 26.9°C at St James's Park in the capital on Good Friday, 2011.

Met Eireann says there is a "high degree of uncertainty for western areas from late Sunday and Monday". There is also a high pollen count forecast, making it a bad day for hay fever sufferers.

Good Friday was the warmest day of the year so far with temperatures hitting 22 degrees in places.

Tonight will be misty across the country with fog developing in many areas.

WEDNESDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy skies develop, with a few rain showers and a high temperature of 76 degrees. However, it will stay cloudy in West Connacht and west and north Ulster with some light rain or drizzle there along the coast. Lows of 6 to 9 degrees Celsius.

The UK's warmest Easter temperature was 29.4C, recorded at London's Camden Square on Holy Saturday in 1949. By midweek a slow moving storm system will spread showers and storms back across the area.

Amazon to quit Chinese web-based sales operations
Amazon has committed to spending $5.5bn (4.2bn) on e-commerce in India, where it is competing with local rivals Flipkart. Amazon bought Joyo.com, a Chinese books, music and video retailer, for $75m (£57.4m) in 2004.

Finally, Sunday looks like it will be dry in many areas, according to the national forecaster.

Southern England and South Wales are set to wake up to some mist and fog, but that will burn away pretty quickly in the morning with the strong sunshine.

Temperatures are expected to climb to 26C on Easter Sunday and 27C on Monday, though north-west Scotland could be clipped by outbursts of rain.

The glorious temperatures come as a result of high pressure over Scandinavia and winds from a warmer southeasterly direction.

Even if the weather doesn't break records, temperatures are still expected to be upwards of 20C - much better than the usual average temperatures of 14C for this time of year in Britain.
