Triple whammy of snow, hail and freezing temperatures could ruin Easter

Brits are set to be blasted with a triple-threat of wintery weather that could ruin the first weekend of the Easter holidays as snow, hail & freezing temperatures are set to sweep across the UK.

It came as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for snow across Scotland today (Tuesday, April 5).

Forecasts have also predicted a wet start for most places on tomorrow (April 6), for some areas of the country while the South will stay dry for some time.

However, the north of England is expected to be struck with wintry showers on Thursday and Friday.

Met Office forecaster Jonathan Vautrey said: "The general theme is for the weather to be unsettled.

"There will be a damp and cloudy start to the working week for most with further outbreaks of rain on Tuesday and Wednesday in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England.

"There will also be a more persistent band of rain across southern areas by Thursday."

Meteorologist Alex Deakin added: "It may have been a milder Monday, but don't get used to it, colder weather is on the way for all of us in the next few days.

"The snow continues into Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, coming down to low levels in Scotland."

Reiterating the concerns for the start of the school holidays, a Met Office forecaster said: "Thursday and through the weekend is likely to be cold in the north with wintry showers, and a risk of snow on the edge of rainbands in the Midlands.

"Widespread frosts are expected in the north, with some icy patches."

According to the latest predictions for next weeks, the weather looks to be unsettled as Central and Southern areas will experience patches of rain and showers.

Further north next week looks like it will be dry and mild, although it's still expected to be cold.
