Snow to hit UK as temperatures are set to plunge

0

The Met Office has announced  Wednesday could be the last day of sunshine before temperatures plummet, as snow is forecast for next week.

Thunderstorms and gales are to hit the UK and Scotland will see 5cm of snow and the West Midlands and North Wales.

Bonnie Diamond, Met Office meteorologist told the Sun Online, “We are seeing a change in weather over the next 24 hours.

“High pressure has brought mild temperatures and dry weather to the UK but as we speak the high pressure is breaking down.

“We will have a return to westerly winds and low pressure typical for this time of year. So, it won’t be as warm as it has been this week and there will be spells of rain and wind.

“With the switchback to westerly mobiles, there is a chance some areas could see some hill snow.

“From Monday there’s a chance northern parts of the countries will see snow and sleet in hilly areas. As we lose the warmer temperatures, areas over high ground can become cold enough for snow to form.”

Temperatures will cool on Thursday, but still remaining in the teens, with a chance of heavy showers in places.
