IT looks like you can start making some outdoor plans for the Easter bank holiday as St Helens is set to be hotter than Ibiza this weekend.

The current forecast is for highs of 22 degrees with sunshine forecast throughout the weekend until rain is forecast on Monday.

Thanks to high pressure over Scandinavia, the outlook is for a 'good deal' of dry and settled weather as well as sunny spells too.

Temperatures will get to 22 degrees on Good Friday and Saturday and 20 on Easter Sunday.

It's not looking as good for anyone who decided to venture abroad for the Easter break.

In Menorca rain is forecast for Easter Sunday and Monday with temperatures only reaching 18 degrees while in Ibiza light rain showers is forecast for every day of the Easter break with temperatures getting up to 18 degrees.
