Easter travel warning as busiest two days on the roads are revealed - amid 'wet and windy' forecast

Easter weather FREEZING forecast: UK faces THUNDER SNOW and Arctic winds in 24 hours

Sat Night: Chance for rain or snow showers.

"But it's not all doom and gloom there will be some sunshine around, it looks like Easter day may be dry and bright for many".

Where is it going to rain?

The morning will be dry, with increasing clouds and the chance for rain/snow showers in the afternoon.

Saturday will see sunny intervals and showers, these wintry in the north, whilst in the south they could be heavy with the chance of thunder and hail. Little to no snow accumulation expected. If you have plans to attend a sunrise service Easter Sunday you will want to bundle up and dress appropriately.

How warm will it be?

A combination of low pressure from the south and freezing winds from the north is causing the miserable cocktail of wet, snowy and cold conditions, forecasters say.

Widespread overnight frost, but cold northeast winds easing on Sunday.

Friday, temperatures are pushed upward to the 40s and low 50s.

Will there be any snow?

Motorists have been warned some roads are likely to be affected by the conditions with longer journey times, mainly across higher routes.

After much speculation over the Easter outlook, the Met Office has in the past hour confirmed the forecast has taken a sharp u-turn.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy snow over parts of the region on Bank Holiday Monday.

The warning will come into effect on Thursday night at 9pm and remain in place until 12pm on Friday.

Temperatures will reach the mid 60s the early part of next week.

"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".

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

However, the warning adds that "it is quite possible that snow might not be too disruptive".
