The Met Office have issued several yellow weather warnings across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland as heavy snow is to hit tonight.

Forecaster have said that over the next week heavy snow will be coming with temperatures plummeting as low as -15C.

In England temperatures could hit as low as -6C, and even lower in Scotland as up to 16 inches of snow could fall across the UK.

The Met Office yellow weather warning starts from 4pm today as blizzards slowly move down the country over the next week.

The Met Office have also warned of ice and snow with heavy rain to hit by Wednesday, but Scotland will see snow until the weekend.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Steven Ramsdale said, “We see further weather fronts bringing rain and snow east and north across the UK, but the most significant event in the forecast is a feature from late Monday evening, which threatens to bring rain and some snow across large parts of the UK.

“As it moves further north and meets the colder air, the rainfall will readily turn to snow or even freezing rain, affecting a large part of England and Wales north of the M4 corridor.

“Yellow weather warnings have been issued for Tuesday and Wednesday highlighting the risk of disruptive snowfall with the high ground of northern England and Scotland most likely to see the largest snow accumulations.

“The risk of freezing rain will be an additional threat across parts of eastern Wales and parts of the Midlands.”
