Strong winds are also expected to make an appearance, with gusts reaching speeds of 60mph expected to hit southern England today and may cause some travel disruption.

A photographer was nearly swept out to sea while trying to take a picture of today’s weather conditions was badly injured when a sign was blown off a building hit him on the head.

Yorkshire and the Midlands have been hit with heavy snow this morning, while the Queen’s Norfolk estate at Sandringham was hit by a power cut as the wind sent trees crashing across high-voltage cables.

Pictures show snowed-up South Yorkshire this morning, where about 4in of snow fell overnight.

A jet stream from the Atlantic is driving the wintry weather causing problems for thousands.

While northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland will get snow and ice across many parts, southern Wales and England will get blasted by strong winds.

In the South, there will be delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport, and bus and train journeys could take longer.

The Met Office also warns of short-term power loss and for coastal areas to be affected by spray and large waves.


Elsewhere will be hit with snow and ice and the Met Office warns of travelling on icy roads and of injuries from slipping.

Met Office forecaster Jon Snow told Sun Online: “Temperatures may not reach higher than 10C in the south, and it will feel particularly cold in the north.”

In addition to snow, winds are due to pick up on Monday night as well, mainly around Northern Ireland and western Scotland with speeds mostly around 40-50mph at their peak.
