Snow returned to Leicestershire today, brought in by bitter north-easterly winds from the North Sea. There was some snowfall in the morning, although it did not settle, and last night also saw more freezing temperatures. The wintry weather is expected to remain until the weekend. After that, however, things could return to normal April weather with maximum temperatures nearer 11C (51F) - but also with the typical wind and showers. Leicester Mercury weatherman Dave Mutton said: "It looks like changes are coming at the weekend with Sunday being the transition day. "Temperatures will be a bit nearer to what we should be getting but it will also become more changeable, with sunshine and showers. "Until then we've got a wind coming from the north east and it's bringing snow in the from North Sea. "I'd expect more frosts to come over the next couple of nights." The Met Office is also predicting a slow improvement in the temperature, with the daily maximum creeping up from 6C (43F) today to 9C (48F) on Sunday.
