Here's your weekend weather forecast for Blackpool - the last weekend before the lockdown roadmap enables leisure centres, outdoor hospitality and resort attractions reopen.

It has been quite a turbulent week weather-wise across the Fylde coast so far - snow appeared in flurries on Tuesday, and the sun couldn't make its mind up most days.

Despite the sun we enjoyed over the bank holiday weekend, cooler temperatures will remain over the next few days, albeit still keeping dry.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the good news is it will remain sunny from Friday through to Sunday - but unfortunately the warmer Spring air will not be returning just yet.

According to the Met Office, minimum temperatures could plummet to as low as -1°C on Saturday night.

Sunday will see lots of sunshine, but a chill in the air will remain with maximum temperatures of just 7°C, in comparison to last weekend's 10°C.

From Monday April 12, the resort's attractions, libraries and leisure centres are able to reopen after lockdown, and outdoor hospitality and beauty businesses can welcome back customers.

So, fingers crossed, the sun will stick around for next weekend, when we can spend it visiting attractions with our households or meeting friends in the beer garden!
