The cold weather will stay with us as we head into the New Year. Cold northerly winds will bring frost and ice for many through the rest of the week, with a covering of snow in places.
There are a number of National Severe Weather Warnings in place across the UK for snow and ice over the coming days.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist Paul Gundersen said; “The snow currently affecting parts of the Midlands will die out this afternoon. However, northerly winds will bring further rain, sleet and snow across parts of Northern Ireland as well as northern and western Scotland today (Tuesday) and Wednesday. Most of the snow that settles is likely to be over higher ground.
“An Atlantic frontal system looks likely to bring a mixture of rain, sleet and snow to parts of southern England and south Wales on Wednesday, but the extent of any snow is very uncertain. There is then a risk of further snow moving south across Scotland, northern England and the Midlands on Thursday”.
