BBC Breakfast’s resident weather expert Carol Kirkwood, 58, has branded the drop in temperatures expected over the Easter holidays “typical”. The meteorologist spoke out on the sudden changes which are set to occur this week on Twitter this morning.

It comes after weather forecasts predicted a mini heatwave will hit the UK tomorrow and Wednesday before a more chilly feel will take over in time for the bank holiday weekend.

Carol informed her 202,000 followers about tomorrow’s summery forecast, before revealing a “surge of Arctic air” is on the way.

Sharing a weather map, Carol began by telling fans: “Tomorrow temperatures! 

“If we hit 23C (fully expected!) it will be the first time we have reached this level in March since 2012….and before that 1968 @BBCBreakfast xxx.”

The BBC Weather host later detailed her disappointment over the cold temperatures expected for Easter Sunday and Monday.

She shared a forecast which read: “Easter weekend Cold Chance of wintry showers.”

Carol then added alongside it: “Typical!!! 

“Easter Sunday and Monday – surge of Arctic air coming our way with strong winds @BBCBreakfast xxx.”


Fans took to the comments section of Carol’s tweet to share their reactions to the news.

One person exclaimed: “That’ll make your easter eggs shiver!”

“They won’t be around long enough for that!” Carol quipped in response.

Another fan added: “Thanks for this heads up. I thought you were Little Miss Sunshine. Hope your day is filled with sunshine so that you can spread it around.”

A third person commented: “Morning Carol, hope you and yours are well. I shall make sure I don’t pack the winter woolly away!”

A fourth penned: “That’s annoying, we were even hoping we could turn the heating off proper.”

A fifth told Carol: “Please press the hot button!”

During her forecast this morning, Carol told BBC Breakfast viewers: “Warming up is really the forecast for the start of the week.

“It is not going to remain that way by the end of the week and it will be much colder.

“Into the Easter weekend, it is going to be cold, particularly so on Easter Sunday and also Easter Monday.

“For some of us, there will be some wintry showers as well.”

The rising temperatures predicted for the start of this week coincide with the government’s “stay at home” order being scrapped amid a relaxation of coronavirus lockdown rules.
