Yellow weather warning for heavy snow issued for Bank Holiday Monday

Meanwhile, the Met Office has issued a severe yellow weather alert, warning of rain turning into snow and "icy stretches" on Thursday and Friday.

It states: "As a weather system moves in from the south and comes up against cold air over the United Kingdom, there is the chance that rain could turn to heavy snow in places".

First of all, tonight (as in Wednesday night) looks to be the last truly bad weather day for a while, with temperatures dipping to as low as -2 in places, as flurries of snow expected to hit higher ground.

"And especially cold on the east coast of Scotland where increasingly that wind picking up and also turning colder through the evening and overnight means the showers here will turn more and more to sleet and snow".

It is also possible a few centimeters of wet snow could gather at lower levels.

An upper level disturbance could potentially bring more scattered snow showers this morning along with some patchy fog as well.

By Easter Monday cold air will once again be feeding in from the east and this is when forecasters much of the northern half of the United Kingdom could see snow.

Patchy fog. A slight chance of rain shower, partly sunny, and a high near 46.

After reaching a high temperature of 50 degrees around noon, a cold front will bring in cooler temperatures along with the chance of rain and snow.

More rain is expected to sweep in from the south on Monday, with heavy showers on their way to a number of coastal cities such as Plymouth, Southampton and Brighton. "Most likely to rain down towards the south".

Temperatures are predicted to fall as we go through the weekend but for most part it will be mainly dry and settled.

Saturday, the high will be near 57 with partly sunny skies and a southwest wind of 11 to 15 miles per hour, becoming north in the afternoon, according to the weather service.

Overnight into Sunday it will turn quite cold.

Snow showers are possible to continue through Saturday morning. But driving could be tricky with blowing snow in the air.
