Spring has arrived, so the days get longer than the nights from this point on.
It is still early spring, though, and cold nights can still occur. Snow can fall right into June! In fact during June, 1975 it was cold enough for some widespread snow showers up to June 2 as northerly winds brought arctic air south. It even stopped the cricket at Buxton in the afternoon when an inch covered the ground. It was the precursor to the hottest summer on record the following year,1976, a summer that has never been beaten. A few years later on March 21, 1979 we had a very cold end to March with widespread snow and snow showers. Low pressure moved south down the North Sea with arctic air following. The weather of the next few days could not be much different with high pressure and warm days. There is little chance in the next week of any really cold weather but it will turn cooler towards the weekend.
