Spring may be on the way but parts of Britain face a last gasp of winter with warning of heavy snow in some parts.
The Met Office issued a severe weather advisory covering many parts of Scotland and higher ground in northern England and as far south as the East Midlands.
Many upland areas can expect around four inches today, some could see as much as six inches of snow while low-lying parts could face disruption from slush.
But with icy conditions for some, forecasters said there would be a marked “north-south split” with mild spring weather for others.
Temperature in South West England are set to reach the low 50s Fahrenheit today (SAT), markedly above average for the time of year with more mild, spring-like conditions on the way next week.
“There is a real north-south split there,” said Helen Chivers, a Met Office forecaster.
