The Easter break could become a wet and windy washout in Britain - and there might even be some snow according to the Met Office.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind around the Bristol Channel for today amid fears winds of up to 65mph will strike causing disruption to road travel.

Heavy rain is predicted in Wales and the South West today and is expected to sweep east across Britain, while the north of England and Scotland will see "blustery showers".

Wintry showers bringing sleet and snow could affect higher parts of the North today and tomorrow.

The next few days are going to be windy throughout the UK. We have a band of heavy rain moving in from Wales and the South West and moving across England.

We are expecting quite windy, breezy conditions. There will be a few showers turning wintry on Sunday but it is more likely overnight into Monday.

– Met Office forecaster Nicola Willis

Wind and showers are predicted to last most of the week and temperatures will hover a few degrees below the average.
