A SNAP BACK TO WINTER; Country set to freeze.

Byline: Lauren Turner

SNOW and sub-zero temperatures are set to hit Scotland... again.

Forecasters have warned of a return to winter, with a band of rain, sleet and snow to sweep down the country over the weekend.

And strong, freezing winds will make temperatures feel even colder.

Tony Conlan, of Meteo-Group, said: "Saturday is going to be a transition day.

"Rain and sleet will affect many areas, turning into snow on northern hills.

"There will be snow showers on Saturday night, particularly over north-east England and east Scotland.

"What people will notice then is the strength of the cold, north-easterly wind, which is going to really pick up. It will be bitterly cold in the wind and temperatures will mostly stay below zero as we head into Sunday." d, k n es o " There will be more snow showers tomorrow but the coldest weather will arrive early next week. On Monday, temperatures are unlikely to be above zero anywhere.w he vey, o Conlan added: "There are no signs of spring anywhere on the horizon."
