Parts of Britain were waking up under several inches of snow today as a flash of winter weather in spring made some areas colder than Moscow.

Up to 48,000 homes were without power as blizzards, gale-force winds and torrential rain hit both Scotland and Northern Ireland, knocking down power lines and causing widespread transport havoc.

In the worst-hit part of the province, around 300 people - including children on a school bus - had to be rescued from vehicles trapped in snow overnight on the Glenshane Pass near Londonderry.

While some parts of the UK were below freezing, temperatures in Moscow reached a mild 13c (55f).

It may be British Summer Time but a wintry blast is on the way, forecasters warned today.

There will be a cold snap on Tuesday and Wednesday, with snow expected on high ground in northern parts of Britain.

Julian Mayes, senior forecaster with MeteoGroup, said: 'It's turning very unsettled and we expect a two-day cold snap on Tuesday and Wednesday, which is going to give quite a surprise to many people after the recent mild weather.

'The current charts suggest it's going to be fairly short-lived in the south, with the worst of the cold winds and risk of snow being on the northern hills.

'On Tuesday, we expect to see rain or showers over most of Britain, with strong northerly winds over Scotland turning the rain to snow there in some places.

Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- New York City may receive as much as 6 inches (15 centimeters) of snow from a winter storm that has prompted a blizzard warning for tomorrow for part of southern New Jersey, forecasters said today.

The storm, which may cover the Washington-Baltimore area with as much as 2 feet of snow, is being watched by meteorologists as it moves up the East Coast because a slight shift will mean a difference between clogged or damp for New York’s streets.

The current best forecast for New York is in the range of half a foot, said Tom Kines, a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania.

“New York is right on the fence,” Kines said. “You are not going to have to go that far south to where there will be a lot more and not that far north to where there won’t be much.”

Southern New Jersey, including Atlantic City, and Delaware have been placed under a blizzard warning beginning tomorrow at 4 p.m., according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, New Jersey. As much as 2 feet of snow is possible in the area and blowing snow may reduce visibility to less than one- quarter mile.

Hail, sleet and thunder forecast as two million jet off to find holiday sun

The wintry weather descending on Britain is expected to continue into the weekend, boosting the estimated two million Easter holidaymakers heading for the sun.

Forecasters warned that the holiday weekend would be “cold, wet and windy” for most of the country with only Easter Sunday having a good chance of sunshine. The snow that paralysed Scotland and Northern Ireland will continue to fall on higher ground over the next few days. Sleet and hail are expected on lower ground.

Dave Elliot, a Met Office forecaster, said that as the area of low pressure from Scandinavia that brought this week’s blizzard conditions to Scotland and Northern Ireland moved away, another area would move eastwards across the country on Friday.

“It will be quite chilly across the country with a risk of hail, sleet and thunder,” he said. “The best day could be Easter Sunday where there will be a bit of a lull with sunny spells in central and western areas. By Easter Monday another band of wet and windy weather will be spreading eastwards.”

Wintry weather is set to continue into half term next week with little sign of a respite in the chilly spell which has enveloped Britain

Meteorologists predicted that more snow, sleet, rain and freezing fog are on the way.

"It is likely to be unsettled again after the weekend," a spokesman said. "It could be absolutely anywhere, although snow is more likely on higher ground".

Today saw more heavy snow and ice, especially in East Sussex and Kent with more than five inches falling in some areas.

Main roads in both counties, including the A259 which links Eastbourne with Bexhill-on-Sea were particularly treacherous. The AA was bracing itself to handle 14,000 breakdowns, compared to 9,000 on a normal Thursday.

As the UK’s worst winter in 30 years continues, weathermen and motoring organisations predicted further hazardous conditions on the roads and chaos for youngsters trying to get to and from schools.

The latest in a string of cold snaps is due to hit the country early next week and could last as long as 10 days. Motoring groups last night called on local authorities to be better prepared this time and stockpiles of salt were being readied in a bid to get more roads treated than in the wintry spell before and after Christmas.

Weathermen warned that snowfall could be heavy in places, leaving thousands of schools once again forced to decide whether or not to close their doors. Independent risk meteorologists British Weather Services said the blast of cold air would hit the UK early next week, leading to a protracted period of icy chaos.

Scientists and politicians on both sides of the climate change debate have been pointing to the record-breaking snowstorms in the Mid-Atlantic states to promote their theories on the earth's changing temperatures -- and the debate is getting downright nasty.

Scientists and politicians on both sides of the climate change debate have been pointing to the record-breaking snowstorms in the Mid-Atlantic states to promote their theories on the earth's changing temperatures -- and the debate is getting downright nasty.

Joseph Romm, a climate change expert and former Energy Department official; Jeff Masters, a meteorologist who writes on the Weather Underground blog; and others argue that this winter's snowstorms are, counterintuitively, evidence of global warming and not cooling.
