Flurries of snow are set to hit parts of England with yellow warnings issued for some parts of the country.

Freezing temperatures are expected to continue on, plummeting to as low as -2C in parts of England.

The Met Office has forecasted today’s weather to be a combination of rain, sleet, snow and small hail.

“Some of the showers heavy and containing a wintry mix, giving a temporary covering of snow over some hills,” it continued.

However Brits excited to be venturing out to the beer gardens when they reopen on Monday will be relieved to know that the freezing temperatures are set to make way for clear blue skies on Monday.

However forecasters are warning it will still be chilly so those wanting to brave the temperatures should wrap up warm.

The government’s plan of easing lockdown measures steps up on April 12, with non-essential shops, gyms, restaurants and pubs reopening for the first time in weeks.
