We may now officially be in British Summer Time according to the clocks, but the weather apparently still has a bit of catching up to do.

Yellow warnings for snow, rain and wind have been issued for various parts of the UK on Friday and Saturday, with Scotland, Northern Ireland and the west coast most affected.

Tomorrow, a large swathe of central Scotland stretching from just north of Glasgow to the Cairngorms will be under a snow warning from 3am to 9am.

From 2am until 9am, a yellow warning for rain will be in place across the Central Belt, including both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Then on April 6, the whole of Northern Ireland, lowland Scotland, western England and western Wales will be under a yellow warning for wind from 8am to 10pm.

The Met Office summary reads: ‘A deep area of low pressure will bring a spell of very windy weather to western areas this weekend.’

There is a small chance of ‘injuries and danger to life’ from large waves and beach material being thrown around on coastal areas.

Among the towns and cities affected by Saturday’s warning are Glasgow, Edinburgh, Swansea, Carlisle, Plymouth and Belfast.
