However, the wintery conditions battering the country aren’t over yet.

The weather service has issued 16 flood alerts expected to impact much of the south.

Cambridgeshire, Bristol, Milton Keynes, and London could see river banks burst as heavy rainfall continues.

Showers are predicted up and down the country today with parts of Scotland seeing some hill snow.

However, Met Office meteorologist Honor Criswick said warmer conditions are expected later this week.

She said: “By Tuesday onwards things are turning milder each day and by Wednesday we could be seeing highs of 13 to 14C, perhaps up to 15C.

“But from Thursday onwards it is wet and windy.

“It is generally remaining fairly unsettled with showers and longer spells of rain.

“It is going to be mild at times but wet and windy, so you can’t really appreciate that milder weather.”

The outlook for Thursday until the weekend suggests it will be unsettled with very strong winds.

It will feel warmer than usual before the temperature dips again.

Sunday was the first day of British summer time however conditions are yet to improve as we head into April.

So far this month over two and a half times its normal rainfall has already fallen, according to the BBC.

The Met Office said: “A general trend to less unsettled conditions is likely into April, with rain-bearing weather systems more likely to affect southern areas from time to time.”
