The sun will come out tomorrow – much to the disappointment of the majority of the country as they head back to work.
Weather experts say most of the country will enjoy a bright and breezy day following a drab and drizzly Easter weekend.
Families heading out today will enjoy some spells of sunny weather but there will also be plenty of cloud cover across the UK and some showers.

But mild temperatures during the day will drop sharply overnight in parts of north England and Scotland, with the mercury falling as far as -8C and sleet and snow possible.
A spokesman for the Met Office said: ‘The weather is looking pretty calm today, particularly across the south of England.
‘We will have a little bit of rain moving southwards but most of it will fall over eastern Scotland and north east England. Most people will have a largely dry Easter Monday with some bright spells.
‘But it’s not going to be particularly warm with temperatures peaking today at around 14C and falling very low overnight and wintry conditions such as sleet and snow possible in some parts.’
The spokesman added: ‘Tomorrow is looking like very decent weather, which is not what people want to hear as they head back to work.
‘There will be a lot of sunshine over England and Wales and temperatures will be warmer.’
