The Easter weekend will be cold at nights across Estonia, with chances of rain and even sleet in parts. It will get warmer on Easter day itself, ETV's weather forecasters report.

Good Friday morning is chilly, particularly in the east, where temperatures can dip below zero. There may be some snow fall on the northeast coast, while a westerly breeze will keep things fresh. The sun will nonetheless be shining in places; typical early April weather in other words.
