The north and north-east will experience weather of “mixed fortunes” ahead of May Day weekend.
Tomorrow marks the first weekend of hospitality restrictions easing after four long months of lockdown.
And with May Day weekend around the corner, people will be keen to catch up over a pint.
Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said the outlook for the next four days is one of “mixed fortunes”.

Mr Dewhurst said: “There will be a chilly start to the day tomorrow, with patchy frost first thing in the morning.
“There will be some sun and scattered showers. There could be heavy rain and there’s a risk of hail in some of those showers.”
On higher ground, at around 300m to 400m, people could see snow.
A maximum high temperature of 8C (46F) is expected for the day, and “going to feel quite chilly”.
By tomorrow evening, there will be more patchy frost.
