SNOW is forecast to hit Britain in just a matter of days – as yellow wind warnings come into force.

Brits are facing a wet and windy snap after basking in some bright, sunny weather over the Easter bank holiday weekend, experts predict.

Luckily, forecasters at the Met Office are predicting a sprinkling of the white stuff will only affect higher ground in the north.

The dramatic change in the weather is due to a band of low pressure developing just to the south west of England which is expected to bring with a spell of high winds and heavy rain, the experts say.

It comes as the Met Office has released yellow weather warnings for Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday.

The alert for Tuesday covers all of Wales, most of western England and some central parts as well as eastern Northern Ireland.

Things then get even worse on Wednesday as two weather warnings overlap around Cornwall.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Steven Keates said: “The focus for the medium-range forecast is a low-pressure system that’s likely to develop just to the southwest of the UK, potentially bringing a period of high winds and heavy rain late on Tuesday and into Wednesday.

“There’s a distinct possibility of some disruptive wind for parts of the UK, especially in southern and western areas, as well as potential for heavy rainfall and even some snow, though the latter probably confined to high ground in the north.

“Although subject to a large degree of uncertainty, gusts of wind could be in excess of 60 mph in some exposed upland or coastal regions, with around 35-50 mm of rain possible for some areas.”

Southern areas are likely to have rain on Friday while other parts will see some scattered showers.
