Forecasters at the Met Office have extended snow warnings for the UK as the latest yellow alerts predict -10C temperatures with wintry conditions for the next two days.

Forecasters have warned of injuries and travel disruptions from snow in three parts of the UK until Friday.

The east coast is under the latest warning, with new alerts covering the south and west of the UK.

Steve Ramsdale, Chief Meteorologist with the Met Office, said temperatures could drop as low as -10C.

He said: “With cold air across all of the UK any precipitation will fall as snow.

“Snow showers will continue to feed into eastern parts through the week.

“Many places will see further snow accumulations with a few centimetres likely quite widely.

“Some areas will see larger accumulations with 20 cm or more possible for some.

“Convergence lines, where showers organise into bands, becoming heavy and persistent, are likely to drive these larger accumulations and further warnings are likely to be issued as the locations affected become clearer.

“Overnight temperatures will be notably low through the week, especially in areas with lying snow.

“We can expect to see -10°C as far south as East Anglia later in the week.”

Ramsdale added, “Daytime temperatures will also be cold, only reaching 1 or 2 degrees Celsius for many early in the week.

“With strong winds as well the wind chill will make it feel much colder.”
