The 19C observed in both Sheffield and London in the last 48 hours, won’t be seen through the first full week of April as winter makes a fight back.

A cold front is set to descend down over the UK and with high and low pressure once again positioning west and east, we have a cold northerly flow to deal with and precipitation of sleet and snow may not be confined to high ground.

5 to 11C will be the range in temperature by Tuesday and with the combination of strong sunshine and showers, wintryness has the chance to reach low levels.

Under the clear calm skies of night, expect a frost.
