Brits have been warned that 'no part of the UK is immune' to the snow and Arctic conditions set to hit today.

A blast of icy air is expected to sweep the nation a week after Brits enjoyed a glorious heatwave.

The four-day Bank Holiday weekend is set to take a dramatic turn as the freeze could plummet temperatures down to -7C.

Snow warnings are in place for the extreme change in weather, with the Met Office saying no part of the country would be 'immune' from snowfall on Easter Monday.

The cold weather has come as Covid restrictions are easing across the UK, with Boris Johnson urging people to enjoy the outside in a safe manner.

Police are also asking people to continue to respect the rules in place after crowds and brawls broke out in the warm weather on Good Friday.

A "massive step down" in temperature will mean it'll dive into subzero conditions.

Grahame Madge, a spokesperson for the Met Office told the Sun Online: "The real cold is coming in late on Sunday and into Monday, and by Monday most places in UK will be subject to this Arctic plunge.

"It will be bringing wintery showers to northern England and Scotland, but we could also see wintery showers anywhere sporadically, and what we will see is likely to be hail, sleet, or snow."

It'll be colder for all parts of the UK with a mixture of sunny spells and snow and sleet showers.

By Easter morning, there could be as much as 15cm of snow in areas of higher ground.

The Met Office's yellow warnings are in place from 6pm Sunday and run until Tuesday at 10am.

Craig Snell, forecaster for the Met Office, said: “After a taste of summer for a lot of the UK, we will see things turn much colder as we go through the second half of the Easter weekend.

“A lot of the UK will be prone to seeing some wintry showers as we go through the course of Monday but northern Scotland is where we’ll see the heaviest and most frequent snow.

“That’s where there’s most concern that we might see some disruption.”

The cold air is sweeping in from the Arctic and will bring harsh 70pmh winds and icy temperatures.

Southern areas of the country will be slightly warmer, offering a couple of degrees above freezing later this morning.

Parts of Northern England will be subzero and the coldest will be found in Scotland.

Coastal areas of eastern England, parts of Wales and Northern Ireland could also see snow showers.
