Sunshine and dry weather could warm up most parts of the UK on Sunday, but rain is likely over Northern Ireland and Scotland
Brits face a sunny Sunday with temperatures expected to hit 10C after a freezing night in parts of the country.
Frosts set in overnight and temperatures dropped to as low as -6C in some areas.
Forecasters said the “highs and lows” of spring will hit most of the country over the next week, with sunny spells and windy intervals expected in most regions.
Sunshine and dry weather could warm up most parts of the UK on Sunday, but rain is likely over Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Meteorologist Simon Partridge said: “A wetter and windier day there and we could see some strong, potentially gale force winds around Scotland.”
More unsettled weather is expected to hit most of the UK from Monday to Wednesday, with widespread rain and wind expected.
“That’s the trouble with spring and its ups and downs,” said Mr. Partridge.
The sunny weather will be brief, with rain and wind forecasts for the coming week and into Easter weekend.
Looking ahead to Thursday April 7 through Saturday April 16, the Met Office said: “End of the week and weekend are likely to be cold in the north with wintry showers. Further south, weather systems from the southwest will bring prolonged rain showers and high winds.

“There is an intermittent risk of snow on the northern edge of the rain bands, mainly in central and northern areas. Widespread frosts are expected in the north, with some likely patches of ice. In southern areas temperatures will be closer to average, locally rather warm.
“The following week is likely to remain choppy but the focus is on the heaviest rain and strongest winds heading north and west across Britain, allowing for some drier interludes in the south east.”
This month’s frigid weather comes after Britain enjoyed its sunniest March since 1929.
Northern Ireland basked in 90% more sunshine than the average for the month, with 192.5 hours of sunshine.
Scotland saw 64% more sun than usual with a total of 160.1 hours, while England had its sunniest March at 168.1 hours and Wales its fifth brightest March at 157.9 hours.
