Snow, rain and sunshine forecast for mixed weekend weather


Britain will see all seasons in one weekend with heavy snow, torrential rain and sunshine forecast in different places.

Much of Scotland has been told to brace for sleet, snow and hail on Saturday and Sunday, while parts of north west England and north Wales could see nearly a month's rain fall in 36 hours.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of snow and ice for much of northern Scotland lasting from the early hours of Saturday until 11am on Sunday.

A yellow warning of persistent rain is in place for north Wales and north west England from midday on Saturday until midnight on Sunday, with up to 3.15ins (80mm) expected over the weekend.

Meanwhile the south of England could see temperatures climb as high as 14C on Sunday with sunny spells - although any fine weather is expected to be accompanied by gusty winds.
