UK weather: Heavy snow to cause ‘DANGEROUS ICE’ and ‘DISRUPTED’ travel across the UK | Weather | News


Torrential rain will push through the UK this morning with snow and ice set to follow.

Meteorologist Luke Miall said: ”We have weather warnings in place as we head through tonight.”

He added that “heavy rain is knocking on the doors of Northern Ireland” and that is going to make its way across the country, “giving a spell of wet weather”.

He also said: “There could be some hill snow but more especially into the south-east of Scotland and the north of England.”

In these areas the country can expect to see some snow, which follows on from the white spell the north experienced during the early parts of last week.

Mr Miall continued: “Wintery showers will then follow on behind, but the rain will clear across the south.

“With clearing skies, we will see the risk of ice as some slippery stretches develop.”

Wintery showers are set to continue in the west.

Temperatures are set to be above freezing but the north-west could see some frost in the morning.

The meteorologist said: “It will be a cold, icy, frosty and in some places snowy start to Sunday morning.”

It is set to be cold, as the strong northwesterly winds and frequent showers blow in across many western and northern areas.

According to the Met office “temperatures will really struggle with highs of just two to six celsius” but it will feel a lot colder because of the wind chill.

He also said: “into the evening we will continue to see showers, mainly in the north and west, as they become fewer and further between in the south.”

As we move into Monday, temperates will “plummet” and we will see widespread frost across the UK.

“Ice will be a risk” as people make there way to work on Monday morning, “so there could be some slippery conditions once again.”

There will be more snow to follow in the north.
