Britain will see a few days of relief from the bitter weather before the next band of snow hits the country.

Weather experts say "heavy" snow will fall across Scotland and eastern parts of England, especially the north-east, throughout Sunday afternoon and night.

But the next few days will bring some respite from recent rain, wind and snow, with just light flurries in the mountains, and temperatures of between three degrees and six degrees expected for most of the country.

Gareth Harvey, a forecaster for MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "The next few days will only see a few light snow flurries affecting mountains in Wales and Scotland and the Pennines, in northern England, while temperatures will stay cold.

"The weather will change on Sunday when a front coming in from the west meets cold air.

"It looks like there will first be some rain before it progresses to snow over large parts of Scotland and the eastern half of England, particularly the north-east.

"There could be some significant, heavy amounts."

It comes a fortnight after blizzards brought days of disruption to schools, airports and traffic networks.
