Pub-goers might want to think about wearing gloves, scarves and hats when doors finally open on Monday (April 12).

After five months of lockdown, pubs and restaurants will finally be allowed to serve food and alcohol to customers – but only outdoors.

And the bad news is that the Met Office is currently predicting temperatures close to freezing on the first morning.

In places like Sevenoaks they are predicted to hit zero, with a "feels like" temperature of some -4C.

Kent's county town of Maidstone is set to drop to around 1C on Monday morning.

The good news is there should be plenty of sunshine and temperatures look likely to pick up throughout the day.

The UK's official forecaster doesn't expect them to reach much above 8C on Monday however.

The Met Office's current prediction for Monday April 12

The official outlook Outlook for London and the South East Monday to Wednesday says: "Feeling milder from Monday with prolonged sunny spells.

"Some showers possible on Tuesday with a low risk of hail in any heavier bursts.

"Brighter conditions again on Wednesday."

But more good news is that temperatures should be increasing steadily over the rest of the week in time for the first weekend of pubs reopening.

The BBC's slightly longer range forecast has them up at 13C on Saturday and 14C in several parts of Kent by Sunday, with no sign of rain either.

After five months without any access to our area's wonderful pubs, you imagine plenty of punters will be attending whatever the weather this week.
