BRITS basking in the sunshine in a mini-heatwave are set to be hit with SNOW as a freezing cold snap will see temperatures dive.
Forecasters have revealed that tomorrow is the last day to enjoy the scorching hot weather before the flurry of white stuff hits.
Temperatures have soared to 21C in the past few days, but parts of the UK could dip to as low as -3C before the snow starts to settle.
From Wednesday a band of snow will move down from the north and blanket Scotland and the northern parts of England in around four inches of snow.
By Thursday it will have moved over northern parts of England, possibly dumping up to nine inches according to WX Charts.
Two or three inches will settle on the ground in Wales later in the week, and Northern Ireland should also see some flurries.

Showers are also expected to hit large swathed of the country, with many turning into wintry flurries in the freezing temperatures.
Tomorrow is set to be the last of the mini-heatwave, with temperatures hitting up to 19C at around 2pm.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist Paul Gundersen said: “Although the UK has had a good deal of fine and settled March weather in recent days, a change is on the way from the middle of next week with colder air spreading down from the north and the increasing likelihood of rain for most areas.
“On the hills in the north, there’s a chance of this falling as snow, although we’ll gain more certainty on that in the coming days.

“With the influence of some unsettled weather, we’ll be seeing a marked drop in temperatures for most with colder air arriving from the north.
“This will see maximum temperatures drop into single figures for many areas, and below freezing overnight.”
