Snow to hit south of England as temperatures plunge

MET OFFICE A cold blast is set to hit the UK next week

A severe yellow weather warning for snow has been issued for tomorrow night and Wednesday morning.

Hard overnight frosts are expected throughout the week, with maximum temperatures of four degrees expected on Wednesday and of five degrees on Thursday.

The weather forecast from Met Eireann for the coming week is for more unsettled weather with colder weather and sleet and snow in places early in the week.

The Yellow Warning urges more care to be taken on the roads and on paths with an increased threat of accidents and injuries from falls. After the cold start, the day will be bright with good spells of sunshine but also with scattered showers, mainly across Ulster and Connacht.




It was previously predicted that up to four inches of snow may fall across parts of South, East and central England from 9pm on Tuesday until midday Wednesday.

"Highs of 5 or 6 degrees, but with much lighter winds than on Sunday it will feel a lot less raw than it did yesterday".

A Status Yellow - Wind warning was issued by the national forecaster for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Cork, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford at 10am this morning and is valid from 8pm on Saturday to 9am Sunday. Lowest temperatures -1 to plus 3 C., with a sharp frost and icy patches also.

Heavy snow and gale-force winds could spell travel chaos and cut off villages as bone-chilling air from the Arctic hits the United Kingdom this week, forecasters warned yesterday. Winds will ease and there'l be highs of 3 to 7 degrees. There'll be persistent rain in the west and southwest by dawn.
