Snow fell across parts of Scotland this morning as temperatures plummet after the Easter weekend.
Temperatures are expected to be up to 11C lower on Monday compared with their sunny Easter weekend, when bitter north winds move across the country.
Parts of the UK are expected to see the mercury fall to as low as -7C overnight, while forecasters warn of a ‘bitterly cold’ day.
Snow warnings have been issued for northern Scotland, with up to 15cm at higher elevations.
In other regions maybe 1 to 2 cm of snow will fall.
“There’ll be a drop of 11 degrees between one day and the next, so you will definitely notice it!”Simon Partridge
Meteorologist Simon Partridge, from the Met Office, said: ‘There’ll be a drop of 11 degrees between one day and the next, so you will definitely notice it!’
Mr Partridge said changing the wind direction would cause a change in the atmosphere, leading to cool weather.
Yellow warnings from the weather bureau have been issued across Scotland until 10am Tuesday with wind speeds of up to 70mph predicted.
