Make the most of the sunshine, because you’ll be looking for your jumpers and overcoats in some parts of Wales tomorrow.

We have all enjoyed sunny weather over the Bank Holiday weekend so far, with many taking the opportunity to spend their time off outdoors with their household. But conditions are set to change dramatically, with colder weather spreading from the north.

The Met Office forecasts we’re in for some strong winds on Sunday night, with a risk of coastal gales developing. Temperatures are set to drop sharply leading to a harsh frost, with rain followed by wintry showers pushed in from the north, mostly clearing by dawn.

On Easter Monday, it will be a mostly dry morning with snow showers arriving in the afternoon. It will be a cold day with a biting northerly wind, despite the frequent sunny spells. Another widespread frost will be developing overnight. A minimum temperature is predicted to be as low as -3°C in Sennybridge and -2°C in Brecon. Cardiff is forecast to have temperatures dropping to -1°C.

The outlook for Tuesday to Thursday also looks unseasonably cold through this period, with widespread frosts. There is expected to be unsettled weather with breezy wintry showers and sunny spells Tuesday. Conditions are expected to ease for most on Wednesday, with wind and outbreaks of rain coming Thursday.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist, Mark Sidaway, said: “After a settled, warm spell with plenty of sunshine particularly across England and Wales our weather will take a notable change in direction later in the weekend. Very cold Arctic air will move in from the north west through Sunday, bringing snow showers and freezing overnight temperatures.

“The snow showers will predominantly affect the north and west of the UK. The south and east will likely remain drier but still cold with a lower chance of wintry showers.”
