Nestled in the Somerset countryside, the city of Bath is surrounded by miles of beautiful scenery.
Renewed for the city’s incredible Roman waters, Bath attracts tourists year on year with the country’s only natural thermal hot spring that you can bathe in.
Taking just an hour and a half to reach by train from London, Bath offers an idyllic country retreat for holidaymakers looking for a breath of fresh air.
According to Somerset Live, there’s another reason to visit Bath this April, the forecast.
The Weather Channel is predicting a mini spring heatwave for the South West region over the next few weeks.
The Weather Channel has forecast rising temperatures over the next two weeks with highs reaching the near 20s.
Wednesday 18 next week is set to be the warmest day with patches of sunshine and highs predicted of 22 degrees.
Wednesday should also see the calmest winds with an ESE wind speed of 17km/h
This makes a change from the SSW winds at 24km/h that are predicted on Tuesday.
Looking at the Met Office prediction for the South West of England, the weather will turn warmer this coming weekend ahead of the highs predicted mid to late next week.
The promising weather in Bath is forecast to last throughout next week according to The Weather Channel making this a great time to explore the Somerset countryside.
The weather will, however, start to waver on Tuesday 24 April as spring showers are once again on the horizon.
Looking at the UK on the whole from the 16 April to the 25, the Met Office predicts some drier and warmer periods than the country is currently receiving.
The Website states: “Eastern areas will benefit from the driest weather and temperatures here could be rather warm. Western areas will be wetter and windier with temperatures closer to normal.
“By mid-week it will probably become more widely settled with some dry and sunny weather.”
Looking at the West of the county, the Met Office predicts: “Western areas will, however be more likely to see some stronger winds and occasional showers.
“By next weekend generally fine and dry conditions are most likely to be in place with above-average temperatures.
“However, there is an increasing chance of rain and strong winds returning towards the end of the period.”
Moving into the beginning of May, the sunniest month of the year according to a recent survey, the chance of wet and windy weather increases.
The Met Office explained: “While the confidence is low, the most likely scenario is for mixed conditions through early May, with perhaps some longer, drier periods but also a chance of cooler temperatures if a northerly flow becomes established.”
