arts of the UK woke to a snowy spring morning on Sunday.
A yellow weather warning for snow affecting the North East of England and North Yorkshire was in place until mid-morning.
The Met Office said up to 5cm of snow was possible on high ground.
Runners and dog walkers were not deterred by the light snowfall at Whitley Bay on the North East coast.
Meanwhile, Londoners saw sunny intervals on Sunday morning ahead of cloud cover in the afternoon.
Scattered showers are expected this afternoon with highs of 7C in the capital.
Elsewhere, it was a chilly start for many, with temperatures ranging from a high of 5C in the South West to freezing in Scotland.
The Met Office tweeted: “A cold and frosty start for many with sunshine and a few wintry showers.”
There are no weather warnings in place for Monday, when non-essential retail and outdoor hospitality are due to reopen for the first time in months as lockdown restrictions are eased in England.
Temperatures will reach between 5C and 10C tomorrow with highs of 12C in some areas of the UK.
By Wednesday, most of the country will be experiencing temperatures above 10C, with highs in London reaching 14C.
The mercury is set to increase to 16C on Thursday – and it could stay at that temperature until April 19.
BBC Weather forecaster Tomasz Schafernaker said: “Early morning temperatures on Monday will be around freezing so once again tomorrow so we could see some fresh snow settling.”
“Now Monday, you can see the scale of the cold outbreak into parts of western and central Europe and it’s still with us.
“We’ll see some ever so slightly milder air nudging in off the continent on Monday but it really is going to be a very slight fine day I think for the bulk of the UK.
“Out towards the west may be increasing amounts of cloud with little bits and pieces of rain and you can see these temperatures sort of nudging back up to around nine to 12C across the West and the southwest of the UK.
“For things to turn warmer, we need southerly winds and then towards the end of the week, we’re actually expecting high pressure to build.
“So that means there’s very little wind so there’s nothing coming our way.
“So whatever air we have sits over us so temperatures may be just around 10 to 12C which is below par for the time of the year.
He said that there would be a “very gradual rise in the temperatures by Wednesday maybe peaking at around 13C or 14C.”
“But there’s clear indications that as we head towards the end of the week ahead those temperatures may well be going back down again.”
