Heavy snow before less cold air arrives

Widespread ice is once again expected across many parts of the UK this evening and overnight, although the very cold weather  is expected to ease over the next few days. Less cold Atlantic air is predicted to move across the UK but as this happens, rain will turn to sleet or snow for a time, with some heavy falls possible on Monday and Tuesday.

Met Office forecasters said: “Less cold conditions by Wednesday will see snow cover thawing. However, it is expected to turn colder but mainly dry again later in the week, although not as cold as the severe weather experienced recently.”

Meanwhile, it was another very cold night across many parts of the UK last night. The tables below show the lowest temperatures (below minus 5 C) recorded at a selection of Met Office observing sites last night recorded at 9am this morning.
