The Easter school holidays are nearly here, but will Birmingham be hit with any April showers?
The Easter Holidays are just around the corner, and many pupils across Birmingham will be looking forward to over two weeks away from the classroom.
When it comes to school holidays, weather is one of the most important factors.
With this in mind, here is how the weather is looking in Birmingham for the Easter Holidays and the Bank Holiday weekend according to weather website Accuweather.
What is the forecast for the Easter school holidays in Birmingham?
School children in Birmingham finish for the Easter holidays on 8 April, and the first few days of the break are likely to be mixed with rain and showers lingering until 10 April.
The first full week of the holidays will be mild, with temperatures potentially reaching 14°C in parts of the city.
The rest of the week looks to have a steady high of 11°C with sunny spells on most days and, thankfully, little rain is on the horizon at the moment.
On 19 April, following the Easter weekend, there will be periods of both clouds and sun with a high of 13°C.
This will fall slightly for the rest of the week and we may see less sunshine, but temperatures should still remain in double figures.
