Accumulating snow possible on Easter

UK weather forecast

Theodore said northern and western counties could see up to two inches of snow on grassy and some elevated areas, but all of it should melt by Monday afternoon. "Accumulations will mainly be on grassy surfaces generally ranging from 1-3". There have not yet been any strong indications which way the late spring and early summer will go weather-wise, he said.

Clouds will continue to build through the evening and overnight hours, with temperatures dropping into the upper 20s to start the day on Sunday.

The rain warning covers the East Midlands, Wales, West Midlands, London & southeast England, southwest England and northwest England from 5pm on Sunday until 4pm on Monday. Winds will be light and from the north at 5 miles per hour.

The weekend starts off on Friday with mostly cloudy skies and a few showers - and more snow - though it will be milder. There will be chances of snow or rain Monday afternoon and evening, with snow possible Tuesday.

Tonight will see rain after 11 p.m., turning into snow between midnight and 2 a.m., with a low of 33.

If you have beach plans for the Easter weekend, you can expect improvements along the coast, with lots of sunshine and highs in the 70s.

Wednesday will bring showers and maybe even a chance for some thunder.

Temperatures then rebound into the 50s on Wednesday before another chance of rain and snow follow Wednesday night and Thursday.

The snow is not expected to last long on the roads as the temperate weekend has kept the asphalt warm, according to Simpson.

Since 2000, Grand Island's average daily temperature during March was 41. The cloud cover will disperse and the sky will become partly sunny with highs around the 60 degree mark.
