In terms of accumulation, anything from a dusting to upwards of an inch, especially on grassy areas and higher elevations.
Avery said that early on Easter Sunday there will be some clouds hanging around, but they'll give way to sunshine by afternoon, when the high will dip just slightly to 53.
The Met Office was cautious about forecasting heavy snowfall ahead of Easter, but has now given a clearer picture of the weather in the coming days. But it will fall at a heavy enough rate in some places to allow accumulation.
This means that after highs of 16 degrees in London and being able to feel the honest-to-God heat of the sun for the first time in ages, we are about to plummet off a meteorological cliff once again.
Temperatures are also going to plummet Friday afternoon with the passage of the cold front and overnight lows will drop in the single digits and teens.
For early morning Saturday, south and southwest winds will be sustained at 15-25 and gusty.
A blizzard warning was issued overnight in the greater Fargo area due to the low visibility and gusty winds. A High Wind Watch has been issued for winds 30-40 miles per hour and gusts up to 60 miles per hour or more.
Sunday night: A chance of rain before midnight, then a chance of rain, snow, and sleet between midnight and 3 a.m., then snow likely thereafter. Increasing clouds, with a high near 81.
Showers are possible Monday, but temperatures will rise into the upper 40s where wintry precipitation won't be a threat. Partly sunny, with a high near 48. Strong gusty westerly winds are anticipated over Flathead Lake Friday afternoon and then a sudden wind shift from the northerly direction will occur which could cause hazardous and choppy conditions for small craft.
The forecast for Monday remains uncertain, thought it looks set to be largely dry across Scotland. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 36.
Friday night, there is a 20 percent chance of showers after 1 a.m., with a low of 47, according to the weather service. The average precipitation was 1.21 inches.
Tuesday: Rain likely. Cloudy, with a high near 55.
