Snow set to return as yellow weather warning issued


The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for more snow in Milton Keynes and Bedford on Easter Monday.

The Met Office warning says: "Possibility of heavy snow over parts of England, Wales and southern Scotland".

"Several cm of snow are possible, especially over hills, with drifting in strong winds".

"Down to relatively low levels overnight and that could cause a few problems certainly potentially turning things icy for Friday morning".

However, the warning adds that "it is quite possible that snow might not be too disruptive".

The weather warning was issued this morning, Thursday March 29, and will be in force on Easter Monday, April 2, between 00.15 and 23.45.

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

Rain and snow showers are likely beginning around 5 Denver, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

Fed raises rates, suggests more to come
"History has shown that unless the real interest rates rise beyond 2.5% the markets can very well take these hikes into stride". Tighten too quickly and inflation may not meet its target of 2% - the level the Fed sees as healthy for the economy.

"The south will be very wet during the early hours of Monday, then as this air moves over the colder air the precipitation will change to snow".

After a chilly, dry and bright start on Friday, outbreaks of rain will edge north through the day.

Sat Night: Chance for rain or snow showers.

Much of the areas have a chance of a rain/snow mix, with about 1 to 3 inches of snow by early Saturday in much of the area.

Below-average temperatures with some frost and spatterings of rain will make way for a more settled Easter Sunday.

"Most spring flowers, daffodils and primroses for example are incredibly tolerant of bad weather despite their delicate looks and won't be much hurt by chill or rain".

Sunday is forecast to be a much calmer day, with more settled conditions and spells of sunshine, despite some rain in northern England. Highs will be in the low 50s around lunchtime in the Denver area, with temperatures dropping into the low 40s by late afternoon.

It will be partly sunny on Thursday, with a high temperature near 51 degrees.
