  • Prepare for coldest night of the year as wind rain sleet and snow batter the UK

'In addition, rain may fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, following a very cold night.

The freezing temperatures, which dropped to below zero at London Luton Airport, brought a fresh blanket of snow this morning which left people overjoyed.

In some southern parts of the United Kingdom it could reach double figures, while in Newcastle is will stay cold at around 1C.

Amber warnings are in place across the Tayside Region until 22:00 issued by the Met Office. Moreover, the west and north of London could also see some snow tomorrow.

One was issued yesterday, warning residents with homes near rivers at Land's End, Penzance, Hayle and Portreath in Cornwall to "be prepared".

The Met Office said snow showers will become heavier and more frequent early on Friday and will continue on and off through the day.

Drivers were warned to be careful on the roads the wintry weather takes hold of the country.

'There will probably be some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths'.


McGill's Buses said a number of their services would be affected by the severe weather conditions, including the 202, 212, 217, 232 and 247 routes.

While in Scotland, northern England, northern Wales and even as far south as the Midlands, a yellow warning is in place for snow and ice.

Cops also warned there is a chance of power cuts, while some rural communities may be cut off.

A statment from the Met Office said: "Some snow will fall on Sunday morning across parts of southeast Wales, southwest and central southern England".

Police said many people had followed warnings not to travel overnight on Wednesday into Thursday in areas covered by the amber warning.

In Northern Ireland, icy patches are likely as the rain falls onto the freezing ground.

The forecaster predicts that these cold and cloudy conditions will prevail, with snow and sleet falling in Ulster and North Leinstar, as well as some snow in hilly areas.

"However, it will be colder elsewhere... with cloudy and misty conditions in most areas this morning with outbreaks of rain and drizzle", said Met Eireann.
