“Typical British weather” is set to take hold next week and unleash nearly 20cm of snow and 16C sunshine within hours of each other.
The topsy-turvy forecasts are set to continue with overnight temperatures plummeting to freezing, while daytime figures soar into the teens.
But after weeks of flood chaos across the UK, the rain finally looks set to stay away for most parts not just for a few days – but the entire week ahead.
According to BBC Weather, wall-to-wall sunshine and blue skies will blitz most of Britain every day from this weekend through to next week until next Saturday.
Daytime temperatures will linger between 10C and 13C for most, although overnight figures will plummet to 0C under the clear skies.
But it is next weekend when the typical weather Britain is famous for takes hold, with snow and Spring-like temperatures set to be unleashed on the same day.
According to WXCharts, a band of heavy rain and snow will sweep north-west England and Wales on Sunday morning and into the early afternoon.
Where the rain falls as snow under the low temperatures, parts of mid-Wales could see 18cm of the white stuff, while the likes of Manchester, Liverpool and Stoke could see up to 4cm.

Yet on the other side of the country, in east and south-east England, an area of high pressure looks set to send temperatures soaring to a glorious 16C.
BBC Weather’s forecast for the next week, starting from this Sunday, reads: “High pressure will continue to bring largely dry and settled conditions on Sunday, with lengthy spells of sunshine, although it will be cold overnight under clear skies.
“Monday should remain dry for most areas, but rain and strong winds will creep into northwest Scotland. Rain and strong winds across Northern Ireland and Scotland on Tuesday, but dry across England and Wales.”
And the Met Office’s forecast for next Tuesday and the nine following days reads: “It should be a mostly dry and bright but cold start to the period with widespread frost and patchy fog possible overnight.
