More weather misery in the UK as forecasts predict a White Easter

Spring has officially started, Easter holidays are about to begin, but the weather and some of yesterday’s TV programs ('Jingle All the Way' ...seriously?) are making that Christmas feeling creep back in. If you’re still trying to convince yourself that tomorrow everything is going to change and you’ll wake up surrounded by blinding sunlight and blooming flowers - as it should be this time of the year - think again. This miserable weather is here to stay, at least for another week, so let’s snap out of the denial phase and let’s face reality: this year we’re going to have a White Easter.
During the last few days most of the country has been hit at various degrees by the snow and the Met Office this morning has confirmed that grim weather conditions are going to affect most regions until next week. In particular, a Yellow Warning has been issued for Central England, Tayside & Fife, Grampian, Highlands & Eilean Siar, North East England, SW Scotland, Lothian Borders, Strathclyde and Yorkshire & Humber, which means that the weather is going to be severe enough to potentially cause “danger to life or widespread disruption”, so extra caution must be taken.
UK residents will have to cope with bitter winds, icy roads and more snowfalls, that will make the temperature feel lower than what it actually is. Freezing temperatures have already caused some fatal accidents yesterday, therefore people are advised to avoid unnecessary journeys. It looks like thermometers in the South-East will be the only ones to go slighly over the +5 degrees mark towards the end of the week, therefore to avoid disappointment it’s recommended to think well in advance about any Easter shopping you might need.
