Weather forecast UK – Sharp cold snap to hit Britain with weekend frost before temperatures rise and heavy downpours hit

A SHARP cold snap will hit Britain this weekend with weekend frost and even snow possible in some parts.

The current milder weather will give way to frosty conditions lasting through today and into Saturday.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders said: “Bands of showery rain will continue to cross the UK before cold air from the north pushes across the country on Friday.

“A cold front will bring a band of rain and blustery conditions for many and there will be a marked drop in temperatures, with some places seeing a fall of 5 or 6C between today and Friday.

“There will be some wintry showers in places with some lying snow possible at times over hills further north.”

Saturday will start cold with frost expected before milder temperatures and heavy rain sets in, especially in the west.

It comes as Brits prepare to bask in 20C heat as the lockdown rules are eased to allow groups of six to meet outdoors.

Temperatures are expected to hit a high of 20C just in time for the Easter bank holiday weekend.
