Sunny Saturday, snow shower possible Easter Sunday

Sunny Saturday, snow shower possible Easter Sunday

The Met Office's yellow "be aware" warning for rain runs from 15:00 BST on Friday to 10:00 on Saturday covering south east Wales.

There is a slight chance some rural communities could become cut off.

There is still the chance of rain, but this will be interspersed with sunny spells and cloud across large parts of the UK.

Our weather team will bring you any urgent weather alerts or updates as they occur.

Weather forecaster Helen Willetts warned despite the odd slivers of sunshine on Easter Day, most of the United Kingdom will suffer from the cloudy, cold and damp weather for the next 48 hours.

Winds stay out of the south from 8-13 miles per hour for most of the night with gusts as high as 20, as lows bottom out in the low 40s by morning.

A Victory for Dark Matter in a Galaxy Without Any
Dark matter, it seems, might be spread out across the universe more unevenly than scientists had thought, van Dokkum explained. The galaxy NGC 1052-DF2, or DF2 for short, reportedly has 400 times less dark matter than expected for an object of its size.

Snow showers and strong cold winds will likely cause travel disruption across the Midlands, southern Scotland and Northern Ireland on Easter Monday as Britons will start returning from their Bank Holiday getaways. There is also the possibility of a few cm of wet snow gathering at lower levels. Recent forecast models have shifted the track of the storm more north, meaning Indianapolis may also see light snow accumulations by Sunday night.

Forecasters have said temperatures will be lower than average for this time of year. Any showers will fall as rain in England, but these should ease in the south during the afternoon. Saturday might be a touch warmer but lows both nights will be right around 60 degrees with clear skies.

"From 2 or 3 in the afternoon will probably be when the heaviest snow moves through", he said. Overnight into Sunday it will turn quite cold, with widespread frost expected in Northern Ireland and Scotland.

No repeat of the Beast from the East's Arctic conditions and travel chaos seen at the beginning of month is expected - despite warnings earlier this week. With this system moving through overnight, we will be cold enough for a quick thump of snowfall lasting into Monday morning. There is the chance for some sunny breaks throughout the day with mostly cloudy skies.

Sunday night, the low will be around 31, according to the weather service.

WEDNESDAY - Mostly Cloudy and Breezy with Showers Possible.
