SNOW will hit parts of Britain while other regions will see cold sunshine – as pubs and shops reopened to lockdown-weary Brits today.
Despite the sun it is still expected to be cold so anyone venturing out for a pint should probably take a coat.
Forecasters say temperatures could be on the chilly side, with the mercury expected to struggle to reach over 8C in London.
Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said Monday would be “a cold day with bright weather for most”, adding: “It’s certainly looking fine, dry and cold in the South.”
England saw its coldest April day in eight years on Wednesday, with the temperature hitting a freezing -7.5C in Benson, South Oxfordshire.
And another Arctic plunge is on its way to the UK, according to The Weather Outlook.
The forecaster predicted in an update: “A band of patchy rain pushes down over central and southern counties today.
“Areas to its north will be cold and bright, but wintry showers develop.
“The weekend brings sleet or snow showers to central and northern regions. In parts of the south there is a risk of longer spells of rain, sleet and snow.”
