Umbrellas at the ready this weekend, as the Met office predicts wet weather for London over the Easter break.

Easter 2016 has been particularly difficult for forecasters to guess the weather, with initial reports suggesting a blast of snow was due to bring a 'White Easter' to the capital and another predicting a holiday heatwave .

Only this month, meteorologists said a sudden polar 'plunge' - the same phenomenon that triggered the 2010 Big Freeze - could strike again between the end of the month and beginning of April.

In the latest, and hopefully most accurate, prediction, Good Friday has been forecast to be the only dry day, with sunny spells predicted, punctuated with some rainy spells from the north west on Thursday evening and into the morning.

However, temperatures will be as high as 13 degrees on the Friday, although the sunshine is not due to last.

Heavy rain is expected to fall on the capital for the most part of Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with very windy conditions.

The Met office has said temperatures are below the average for this time of year and a jet stream could sweep across the UK to make it even wetter and blustery.

A spokesperson for the Met office said: "Saturday is due to be windy with a spell of heavy rain, drier and brighter later.

"Sunday, expect to see bright spells and blustery, heavy showers.

"There is also potential for further wet and perhaps very windy conditions on Monday."
