Previous weather reports predicted Easter 2017 could be one of the warmest on record, but Scots have now been warned to expect a severe dip in temperature.

Snow in Scotland is expected in parts of the Highlands and across the central belt.

Met Office spokesman Nicky Maxey added: “It’s certainly not bikini weather. People shouldn’t let it stop them getting out and enjoying themselves this weekend but it certainly isn’t wall-to-wall sunshine.”

Ladbrokes said: “At this stage, we’re calling Bank Holiday snowfall for Scotland.”
