It's Arctic maritime air, which does mean it's coming from the Arctic.'So it's going to be cold for everybody, but also windy too. The wind chill is going to be significant.' It comes as: The PM will brief the Cabinet today that the conditions have been met to allow shops, gyms and hairdressers to reopen as planned on April 12;Mr Johnson will set out a new traffic light system for future foreign travel – but warn it is still too early to book a summer holiday abroad; Fears 'false positives' could cripple the UK as Boris unveils plan to test everyone twice a week;Scotland reopens hairdressers from today - beating the rest of the UK to the punch once again, although non-essential shops could stay closed for weeks longer;  Daily Covid deaths fell to just ten – the lowest figure since September 14, and a reduction of more than 99 per cent since the peak in January.

But he will say he is unable to advise yet whether any countries will be classed as green on this date.  HIGHLANDS: MailOnline reader Zoe Brown sent in this photo of the widespread snow in the Brora North West Highlands HIGHLANDS: Boo the Jack Russell, MailOnline reader Zoe Brown's dog, enjoys the snow in the Highlands Easter Morning ABERDEEN: A cyclist carefully navigates the snowy path as an arctic blast brings wintry weather to the UK on Easter Monday NORTHUMBERLAND: A rabbit sits a field of snow that fell overnight on Easter Monday in Slayley, Northumberland as temperatures plunged from the weekend's mild weather SHETLAND: Dave Donaldson took these photos of the wintry conditions blasting the far north of the UK with temperatures plummeting to a windchill SHETLAND: High winds and blizzard-like conditions hitting the mainland in Shetland this Easter Bank Holiday morning NORTHUMBERLAND: Sheep walk through a snow covered field in Slayley, Northumberland, after snow fell overnight on Easter Monday DERBYSHIRE: Snow falling in Duffield, Derbyshire, one of the most southerly place in Britain to see snow fall on a day where temperatures plummeted  SUFFOLK: Ivy Mitchell, 5 and Albert Mitchell, 3 enjoy the snowfall on Easter Monday in Suffollk and other parts of the UK COUNTY DURHAM: Horses stand on snow covered ground in Waskerley, County Durham on Easter Monday following overnight snow NORTHUMBERLAND: Temperatures are expected to be up to 11C lower than during the sunshine of the Easter weekend as cold northern winds move over the country NORTHUMBERLAND: An overnight snow fall on Easter Monday in Slayley, Northumberland. Temperatures are expected to be up to 11C lower than during the sunshine of the Easter weekend as cold northern winds move over the country GATESHEAD: A dusting of snow covers rooftops in Sunniside, Gateshead on Easter Monday following overnight snow as the UK enters an 'Arctic trough'  OLpremierleague-news.comM: Houses in Oldham covered in snow this morning as temperatures plummet sharply across the country on Easter Monday This weekend's sweltering highs are set to dramatically plummet on Easter Monday to just 2C in the south of England (Monday's predicted temperatures) Health Minister Edward Argar today said an increase in cases in Europe showed why the UK must 'get this right' in order to avoid importing potentially vaccine-busting variants of the disease.He told BBC Breakfast: 'We are seeing many of our friends in Europe seeing an increase in infections.'That is one of the reasons why we have to be very careful that as we see an increase across the world in infections that we get this right because one of the things we don't want to see – and just as the vaccination programme is working so well – is getting new variants or risking new variants getting imported into this country.'But, although tempting as it is, I'm not going to pre-empt which countries might be in which categories or what the Prime Minister might say.'Holiday chiefs today insisted there is still time before the summer season for European countries to get coronavirus case numbers under control again.Asked what the most likely holiday destinations could be when travel is allowed, Andrew Flintham, managing director for Tui UK and Ireland, told the BBC: 'Cyprus have come out and been very positive, Greece and Turkey have come out and been very positive, and Spain again.'So I think all these European countries, whilst to a degree they are struggling with their rates at the moment, we are still a significant period away from the summer season properly opening up, we are probably 11 weeks away.'The world has been changing on a weekly basis, never mind an 11-weekly basis. So we are still positive about those destinations. We are also positive that the Caribbean and some of those destinations will open up.'
