Warm to cold for Easter?

Through Wednesday patchy outbreaks of rain spread southwards across the northern half of the UK. In Scotland colder conditions develop and showers start to turn wintry. Southern and central  have another very mild or even warm day.

Thursday and Good Friday see cooler conditions pushing southwards. There should be a good deal of dry and bright weather. In the sun it still feels pleasant but nights will be chilly.

The Easter weekend probably starts off mainly dry and very mild. Later on a band of rain pushes southwards and much colder air follows it. The risk of wintry showers is likely to increase with snow possible in central and northern regions by Easter Monday.
