Snow showers to hit the UK Tonight!

Brits are bracing for up-to five inches of snow to hit the country tonight as temperatures plummet to below freezing.

Snow is forecast for the highlands and high-level areas of northern England, where yellow weather warnings are in place.

The Met Office forecast areas above 300m could see 15cm of snow, with 5-10cm set to fall above 150m while 1-3cm could fall below 150m and even low levels could see a dusting the white stuff.

Ice is also expected to sweep the rest of the country, with a yellow warning in place for much of the England and Wales between 7PM on Monday and 10AM Tuesday.

The Met Office said the ice warnings would likely cause disruption for motorists and has warned pedestrians to watch out for slippery surfaces.

“Sleet and snow showers are forecast for Monday night, which will bring icy patches to low ground and snow to higher ground.”

Roads and railways may be affected by the wintry conditions, with drivers and passengers warned their journeys could take longer than usual.

Widespread ice patches could also cause travel disruption.

But the wintry weather is set to be a “short sharp cold spell” over two days before milder weather moves in on Wednesday.
