Easter Weather Watch: there will be snow, but it won't be as bad as we'd feared

33 degrees doesn't matter if it snows hard

The Met Office is warning that the weather could be to take a turn for the worse again over the Easter weekend.

However heavy rain and even possible hill snow is likely later on Easter Sunday and into Monday.

There is also the possibility of more prolonged rain and hill snow for parts of northern England.

At present the extent and amounts of any snow are very uncertain, and the risk of disruption is low.

There are yellow weather warnings out for snow in Scotland from Thursday night and into Friday.

Scattered snow and rain showers will give way to partly sunny skies by Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service's Billings office said. Forecasters indicate a 40 percent chance of precipitation, with little or no snow accumulation.

There is a chance of some snow showers on higher ground in this area but it is unlikely to stick.

After a dry and cloudy start for many, Friday will bring more prolonged rain to the south of the United Kingdom, whilst wintry showers will affect some parts of the north.

There had been suggestions that another blast of similar weather from Siberia would give us a white Easter, but those predictions have since been softened.

A WXChart map shows the United Kingdom will be battered by more snow this Bank Holiday weekend with parts of the county suffering from up to 25cm of snow on Easter Monday. Highs will be in the low 50s around lunchtime in the Denver area, with temperatures dropping into the low 40s by late afternoon.

Rail workers are taking industrial action this week and temperatures may fall to -10C in some parts of the country, with bitter winds and snowfall forecast.

Overnight temperatures could sink to -10C (14F) in parts bringing harsh frosts and icy roads as daytime highs hover below average, experts warn.

Snow showers are possible to continue through Saturday morning. A cold front will move through in the evening and will transition to all snow.
