Windier on Thursday, but wind speeds low through most of the Easter Weekend. A series of weak fronts and areas of showers will move south on Thursday, followed by 48 to 72 hours of fine weather with areas of clear sky. Increasing threat of rain by Monday, although latest evidence suggests this less heavy/thundery than earlier anticipated. Snow on the Scottish Highlands will start to melt again as temperatures rise on Friday, with slow thaw then persisting throughout Easter.
