Where will there be snow in the UK and when will it next hit?

The UK is braced for a week of snow, plunging temperatures and gales as polar winds sweep in.

A yellow warning for snow and ice has been issued for parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland next week.

Power cuts are possible and travel delays are predicted as the wintry weather returns with a vengeance.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: “The general overview is that having had quite a quiet few days that kind of continues into the weekend really, with few changes happening.

“Most of the UK continues to see mostly dry weather and that continues into Sunday as well.

“But as we go into the latter part of Sunday we get quite an active weather front coming in.

“It will bring a spell of quite wet and windy weather through the whole of the UK.

“To the north of that it will start to turn much colder.

“We will see quite a drop in figures with the cold coming in from the north.”

As a polar maritime air mass whips through the country at the start of the week, Brits in the north can expect to feel a chill.

Temperatures will drop about 4 or 5C to hover around freezing once more.
