Breaking News ! Frosts are likely and these could be sharp or even severe in the north west Colder weather is expected across the UK this week, accompanied by frosts, hail and sleet. Snow is expected to settle over higher ground in the northern half of the UK, which may cause travel difficulties for some. Colder, unsettled conditions are expected to spread to the entire UK on Thursday with frequent showers, areas of heavy rain and some hill snow. Steve Ramsdale, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “Although we’re going to see a few days with colder conditions, we shouldn’t be surprised that the start of winter brings a brief spell of wintry weather. Some parts of the UK, especially northern hills, may see snow, but for many this will only be short lived. We’ll be monitoring the forecast and we will issue warnings accordingly.
These unsettled conditions are likely to persist into the weekend with further periods of strong winds, heavy rain and wintry showers. How long the rather cold conditions persists is currently uncertain, but looks likely to continue into early next week.
Chris Bulmer, Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, added: “Although winter has started rather abruptly, this colder spell is expected to be part of typical seasonal fluctuations and doesn’t set the mould for the rest of winter.”
