TEMPERATURES are set to plummet tonight to as low as -4C in parts but most of the country can look forward to a warm and sunny week ahead.

A widespread frost will hit most of Britain tonight as temperatures drop, with northern and western areas seeing the mercury fall to around -2C or -4C in rural parts.

However, those cold temperatures will clear quite quickly and the UK is due to bask in wall-to-wall sunshine on Tuesday.

The mercury is forecast to climb to between 12 and 15C during the day and will feel warmer than Easter Monday with the winds dropping.

Tomorrow's temperatures are in line with the average for this time of year, according to Luke Miall, a meteorologist at the Met Office.

Only East Anglia is likely to see some cloud cover, although this is not expected to last long.

Temperatures are due to rise even higher on Wednesday with the mercury touching between 18 and 19C, accompanied by bright, clear skies.

It will be more of the same on Thursday and Friday with London and central England seeing temperatures possibly hitting 20C.

Temperatures will be a bit cooler in both northern and eastern parts as well as the far south.

Most parts will once again see some fine, bright, sunny weather although south-west England and southern Wales are expected to see some showers.
