According to the latest weather forecasts on WXCharts, temperatures across the UK will rise to 14 degrees this weekend but will drop down to nine degrees by March 26. However, as March comes to an end, spring will finally arrive as the UK will bask in the warmth.
WXCharts predicted temperatures will reach up to 20 degrees by midday on March 31 and are expected to remain high in the first week of April.
By April 2, temperatures will peak at 21 degrees as the entire country turns yellow in the long-range forecast.
Across Europe, temperatures will soar to 37 degrees by the end of the month.
While temperatures will peak, the Met Office has predicted there will be bands of rain likely to move in from the northwest.
The heaviest rainfall will hit the northern and western parts of the country and there will be “unsettled conditions” for southeastern areas.
They said: “The strongest winds are likely to be across far northern and northwestern areas, with winds possibly being from fresh to strong across other parts too.
“Unsettled conditions may continue in the northwest through to the end of March.
“Temperatures are expected to be near to or a little above average, although short-lived cooler interludes could occur in the showery conditions following any weather fronts.”
The Met Office added temperatures will be “around average or above” for the first week of April.
However, the hot weather will come after temperatures will plummet ahead of Easter.
The Met Office predicted some temperatures will plummet below freezing point as parts of East Sussex woke up to -2C this morning.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “Going into April, settled conditions are likely to continue in southern and eastern areas, where a good deal of dry and bright weather will occur.

“The weather in the northwest will be changeable and unsettled, and there is a slight possibility that some of the wet and windy weather may push southwards into central areas at times, allowing clearer but showery weather into the northwest.
“Conditions look to be drier than average for most.
“Temperatures are expected to be near to or milder than average, with any cooler interludes likely to be short-lived, and mostly in the north.”
BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor predicted temperatures are set to increase over the weekend despite cold air from Scandinavia.
He said yesterday: “On Friday there will be some sunshine in the southeast corner of the UK but a lot of clouds elsewhere.
“This afternoon even though we have got the sunshine across East Anglia and the south-east it will still be a chilly day.
“But yesterday it was 19 degrees in Edinburgh and today the warmest of the air today probably to the western side of the central belt.
“It will be about 16 or 17 degrees in the Glasgow area and temperatures elsewhere around where it should be for the time of year.”
The warmer weather will come as a joy for Brits as England prepares its first weekend out of its third coronavirus lockdown.
Towards the end of next week, socialising restrictions will begin to ease across England.,
This means the public will be able to reunite with friends and family for the first time since before Christmas.
