Snow forecast to fall across Cambridgeshire over Easter weekend

The Easter holidays will not be as spring-like as many of us would have liked in Cambridgeshire with the Met Office predicting rain and snow.

Most days will either face light rain or overcast skies but Bank Holiday Monday (April 2) comes with a chance of snow flurries.

A yellow warning for snow has been issued for the East of England on April 2 from 12.15am until 11.45pm.

The Met Office said: "Possibility of heavy snow over parts of England, Wales and southern Scotland, especially for high ground. Travel may be affected.

"There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.

"There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off. There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected."

Chilly winds are expected to stay in charge in the north but southern areas of England could be enveloped by some milder air before another colder snap bringing more wintry weather.

Forecast models suggest there could be a brief spell of warmer temperatures before the risk of more colder weather possibly regaining its grip before spring finally returns by the middle of April.

A statement from The Weather Company, which runs The Weather Channel, said: “There is increased evidence of a warmer than normal phase, followed by a brief colder spell passing eastwards over Europe late next week as a deeper-than-expected area of low pressure passes.”​
