The forecast for Monday remains uncertain, but it is the day which will most likely see disruptive snow, with the third yellow weather warning issued for the long weekend.

"Several centimetres of snow are possible, especially over hills, with drifting in strong winds".

The Met Office has issued a warning for snow across Yorkshire this Easter weekend. Weather models are predicting lower-than-normal temperatures and, yes, even opportunities (plural) for wet snow.

This says there is a "possibility of heavy snow" which could affect travel - with a chance some rural communities could become cut off.

Overnight into Sunday it will turn quite cold, with widespread frost expected in Northern Ireland and Scotland.

And it doesn't look like the spring weather will be back any time soon in the region, as national forecaster SMHI has a class one warning (the least serious on a scale from one to three) in place for snowfall and wind over Thursday evening in Skåne.

Temps moderate a bit for Easter, with just a brief chance of snow showers to kick the holiday off. Little to no snow accumulation expected.

Sat Night: Chance for rain or snow showers.

There had been suggestions that another blast of similar weather from Siberia would give us a white Easter, but those predictions have since been softened. The high temperature will be around 50 degrees. Patchy fog. A slight chance of rain shower, partly sunny, and a high near 46. Some snow showers will linger in the mountains, but the plains will likely stay dry. Whether precipitation falls as cold rain, wet snow or a mix will depend on the specifics of the storm track and how much cold air can be drawn south.
