The retail weather forecast from Saturday April 6 to Friday April 12, 2019

The week last year

Seasonable and showery at the start of the week. Warming up to a fabulous weekend with sun and temperatures as high as 17°C.

The week this year

The week will start off cooler than last year on the back of a few storm systems that traversed the European mainland.

High pressure will once again build across northern Europe, helping to slowly bring warmth back to the UK.

A few showers are likely early in the week across Ireland and Scotland but most dry during the week.

Cooler conditions early in the week will hold back weather-driven comparisons, before coming back in line. Favourable conditions for footfall and getting consumers outdoors into gardens and outdoor leisure activities.
