UK weather forecast LIVE – Snow to fall before end of week, Met Office warns as heatwave ruined by brutal cold snap

BRITS are set for snow and ice as the spring heatwave comes to an abrupt end this week.

Forecasters say today will see the last glimpses of the sunny weather that has hit Britain for the last week – before a spate of white stuff hits.

Temperatures have soared to 21C in recent days, but parts of the UK could drop as low as -3C before the snow settles.

From Wednesday a band of snow will move down from the north, blanketing Scotland and the northern parts of England with about four inches of snow.

“It’s going to be significantly colder than what we’ve just seen, with daily temperatures dropping by half and some areas even struggling to reach 8C (46.4F), which will mark the biggest change in conditions .”

Met Office forecaster Alex Burkhill said of the extreme weather change: “Wednesday will be the most extreme in terms of winter weather as a cold airflow begins to push south bringing with it unpredictable wet and windy conditions, even snow or sleet.

“Overnight into Thursday and Friday, many areas will fall well below freezing, towards minus 4C (24.8F) and minus 5C (23F). It looks like most places will be affected; parts of the north EnglandNorth Wales and central England are expected to be hardest hit.

“This wintry weather could even spread to southern parts of England and Wales, which is not uncommon; It’s normal to have colder weather in April, but it’s a far cry from the sunny, warm days of last week.”
