- Britain will see some Spring weather next week with temperatures of up to 14C
- But there was snow in Scotland this morning, pictures of the A939 showed
Temperatures are set to hit 14C next week as Britain is finally greeted by some Spring weather.
But widespread showers, and even snow in some areas, are expected before the sunny spells arrive.
Colder air is making its way to all parts of the UK bar the southwest today, according to the Met Office, while north and east Scotland and northeast England will be rainy.
And the A939 in north east Scotland, which connects Aberdeen to the Cairngorms and runs from Nairn to Ballater, was pictured covered in snow this morning.
It will begin to turn milder from Wednesday, and London and Manchester could see temperatures of 14C by Thursday.

Tomorrow will see light winds and sunny spells for most, despite a few showers along the coast of east Scotland and east England
The Met Office says: ‘Temperatures are expected to be generally above normal.’
Meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: ‘The showers will be distributed mainly in the north and along the North Sea coast, although it will be a cold start for Monday.
‘We keep that chilly air, albeit with drier conditions on Tuesday.
‘On Wednesday, it is likely to change again with low pressure pushing in from the West and the initial band of rain will likely fall as snow in places, mainly northern hills, before it turns back to rain because we will be seeing milder south-westerly winds return.
‘It will be an unsettled end to next week but with temperatures recovering.’
Today the forecaster says there will be rain in the south and colder air everywhere except the far southwest with sunny spells.
And tonight could see wintry showers for north and east Scotland and coastal eastern England, with widespread frost in the north.
But snow and frost in parts of northern Scotland could settle through the early hours of Monday, according to the forecaster.
The rest of the UK is predicted to be relatively dry with clear spells, light winds and feeling pleasant despite the colder air.
And tomorrow will also see a few showers along the coast of east Scotland and east England.
On Tuesday, the east will start off dry but be met with wet and windy weather later in the day as it moves form the west.
The forecaster adds that thunderstorms could be possible next week as the warmer weather arrives.
