HEAVY SNOW: Met Office issues yellow warning for Derbyshire on Easter Monday

HEAVY SNOW: Met Office issues yellow warning for Derbyshire on Easter Monday

The Met Office warning says to expect "a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel".

We could see rain turn to heavy snow in places, especially on higher ground.

"Where there are impacts from this they could be significant and we could see snow to low levels for a time".

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

Of the weather on the way for Brits, the Met Office's Alex Deakin said this morning: "It is a cold start to the day".

From late March to early April in 2013 the country suffered a prolonged spell of freezing temperatures with winds bringing in bitterly cold air from northern Europe and Siberia - just as the United Kingdom has experienced so far this year with the "Beast from the East".

Across the United Kingdom there is a mixed bag of conditions, often with cold and windy showers and long spells of rain at times.

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.

Daily chances of showers continue for next week, too, which isn't out of the ordinary for spring in the Black Hills.

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.

Below-average temperatures with some frost and spatterings of rain will make way for a more settled Easter Sunday.

Sunday is forecast to be a much calmer day, with more settled conditions and spells of sunshine, despite some rain in northern England.

Sunday: Chilly. Small risk for a snow shower early.

However as wind patterns have changed, the majority of the cold air is now expected to blow in from the East.
