UK snow: Yellow warnings issued by Met Office as temperatures plunge

Snow warnings have been issued across Scotland and northern England from 10am on Thursday.

The Met Office have said that snow in the coming days could cause travel disruption and brief power black outs could also be possible. There are three snow warnings in place for Thursday January 6 and one sweeping warning covering the highlands of Scotland down to Manchester on Friday.

Weather forecasters are predicting the UK’s first widespread frost of the winter over the next few days, with overnight temperatures expected to dip below freezing on Wednesday.

Snow is expected as a cold front of air blasts away the warmer conditions of the past few weeks. New Year’s Day was the warmest on record with a temperature reading of 16.3C in St James’s Park, London.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.”
