United Kingdom weather in April
Hello and welcome to the monthly weather forecast for the United Kingdom.
April is known for its changeable weather. For example, the first days of the month could bring us hard overnight frost and snow, while the ending is usually sunny and dry. The temperatures in the United Kingdom in April are still quite cold, so a warm coat is a must. It's too early to dig out your summer outfit. Raincoat and umbrella can also help you out because the rain comes as no surprise.
However, April 2022 was drier than usual, mostly because of the high pressure, which dominated for much of the time. As a result, calm and settled weather, especially in the southern areas. Despite that, some northern parts of the UK came close to the long-term average figures for rainfall. So, what does April 2023 prepare for us?
