EXPECT pints aplenty on Monday, as we can finally emerge to quaff alcohol at the pub.

From April 12, pubs and restaurants can reopen, but will only be serving food or drink outdoors.

With that in mind, we've looked ahead to see what the weather has in store for us.

Jamie Russell, of the IW Met Service, says Monday will start off cold and frosty.

The day in general will be bright and breezy, with sunny spells and occasional areas of cloud.

The wind will start as moderate, northwesterly at 11-19mph, before turning westerly in the afternoon.

Expect somewhat chilly temperatures between 8C and 10C, though Jamie says it will feel pleasant in the sun and when out of the wind.

New test and trace rules for pubs mean everyone over 16-years-old must now sign in on entry, unlike last year when just one member of a group needed to do this.

This can be done either via the NHS Covid-19 app or in person, by giving a member of staff your contact details.

People sitting in beer gardens will still have to order alcohol via table service, because queuing at the bar is banned.

However, you do not need a substantial meal with your booze this time, and there will be no curfew.
