Wales is set to bask in warm sunshine over the Easter bank holiday weekend, with temperatures predicted to hit 24°C in some places on Easter Saturday.

We could also be on course for our warmest Easter Sunday on record. Brynamman is the current title holder, with 21.6°C recorded back in 1984.

It does seem unlikely though that the Good Friday record will be beaten, which has stood since 1949, when Colwyn Bay and Prestatyn reached 25.6°C.

The Met Office predicts the good weather will begin on Wednesday and continue through until Sunday, with largely warm, dry and sunny conditions.

North Wales could start to see a little more cloud on Sunday afternoon.

But the fine weather is also expected to bring high levels of pollen.
