The cold weather persists with the brightest weather across southwest England, Wales and northern England. A few snow flurries possible across the far southeast of England. Further north, Western and northern Scotland and Northern Ireland will see outbreaks of rain, possibly falling onto frozen surfaces in northwest Scotland. Tonight, there is an increasing chance of seeing freezing rain across parts of southern and eastern Scotland, bringing a significant ice risk. England and Wales remaining generally dry with a severe frost once again. On Thursday rain and snow is forecast to edge into northern England, generating an ice risk here. It will remain very cold across England and Wales, with the best of any brightness further west, although it will be milder in the north.

Today, as an Atlantic front moves in from the west it will come up against this cold air and we’re likely to see a mixture of rain, sleet and snow across the UK.

Many parts will see some snow through the day and overnight into Sunday morning, but about the risk is highest in central and eastern areas where we could see up to 5-10cm of snow.

With this risk of snow and ice over the next few days it is important people stay up to date with our weather forecasts and warnings for the latest information.”
