Freezing, cold temperatures are set to continue across Britain over the next 24 hours with the Met Office warning that "nobody is safe" from snow.

On Easter Monday. (April 5). many parts of the UK saw snow falling despite temperatures being much warmer in the days before.

The short spell of sunny weather allowed Brits to enjoy meeting up with friends and family as lockdown rules eased.

On Tuesday, the Met Office is expecting sunny spells, but also further showers of sleet, snow and hail throughout the country.

These will be most frequent near coasts exposed to the north-westerly winds, with some developing inland by afternoon.

In the afternoon parts of the south and south east could reach 6C or 7C but this is below what you would normally expect at this time of year.

Isolated parts of northern and central Scotland could even see thermometers drop to minus 8C between 3am and 5am, according to the Evening Standard.

There are a number of yellow weather warnings also in place throughout the country.

On the Shetland Islands, there is going to be a period of very strong northerly winds and in the north of Scotland generally, there will be frequent snow and hail showers.

On Tuesday evening the air will be clear and a fairly widespread frost will sit in, but some wintry showers in the north and west.

The mercury could drop to -5C in southern and central England in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said “Nobody is entirely immune to the odd bit of sleet or snow. It won’t last long and it won’t settle for very long either, but nobody is going to be 100% safe from not seeing anything.”

However with wind chill taken into account then temperatures across the country will feel about 2C colder.
