Sunshine and signs of spring - but more showers forecast too

Spring is in the air - but the coming week will see a mix of sunshine and cloud, with some showers too.
This weekend, people have been getting out and about for their daily exercise and enjoying the ability to socialise with one other person in parks and public outdoor spaces, permitted under current lockdown rules.
But we can't yet cast off our coats and enjoy the unseasonably warm weather which East Anglia saw in March last year - with top temperatures for this week forecast to be around 12-13C.
Chris Bell, a forecaster at Weatherquest, based in Norwich, said: "There won't be a lot of rain in the next few days, but it won't be all that warm either."
He said there would be some sunshine during the rest of Sunday, but temperatures were only forecast to reach around 9C today.
On Monday and Tuesday, Mr Bell said the weather would be dry with cloud and some sunshine, and temperatures rising to up to 12-13C. "It will feel a little bit warmer and winds will be lighter," he said.
It is likely Wednesday will see some rain after a dry start. Thursday should be a dryer day, but then on Friday it is likely to be wet and blustery.
The good news, though, is that next weekend's weather looks set to be fairly pleasant and dry as school Easter holidays start and the clocks go forward.
