Could it be a white Easter? Experts weigh in as key decision made on snow

It’s usually the time of year when we expert to ditch the winter coats and sit soaking up the sun.

But some predictions say that snow could still make an appearance over the Bank Holiday weekend, as bookies slashed the odds for a White Easter.

The most recent weather maps from WXCharts predict snow for the northern Pennines on Monday, April 1.

And as we head into Tuesday, April 2 more is predicted in western areas of Scotland around Fort William and then later in the day spanning a vast area of the country – including the Cairngorms National Park.

Leading bookmaker Coral has cut the odds to 1-2 (from 6-4) on snow falling on any major city in the UK over the Easter weekend.

The firm also makes it 6-4 (from 2-1) for this Easter to be the coldest on record in the UK.

“With temperatures set to keep falling in some parts of the UK over the bank holiday weekend, increasing the chances the snow, we have slashed the odds on it being a White Easter this year,” said Coral’s John Hill.

A leading weather expert says Monday is set to be more grim – but that the UK will still see bouts of warmer weather.

Jim Dale, senior meteorologist at British Weather Services, said: “If anything sedate for most – cold starts but warming into the PM in the sunshine.

“Monday is set to be less hospitable with showery rain in places.

“Rain train onwards to mid April then seeing a switch change to drier and much warmer weather.”

The Met Office has issued an Easter weather forecast which predicts that some areas are likely to feel “increasingly cold”.

Dan Harris, deputy chief meteorologist, said: “The weather is expected to gradually improve following the widely unsettled spell of the past few days, with a fairly typical mix of spring-like weather across the UK.

“There will be some sunshine, and it will feel increasingly warm for most as the winds become lighter.

“However, the west and especially southwest is likely to see passing showers too, which could be quite heavy and frequent at times.

“Eastern coastal districts are also likely to feel increasingly cold as an onshore breeze develops, threatening persistent low cloud in some areas too.”
