BBC weather: SNOW to BOMBARD UK as weather warning issued for Monday across Britain

BBC Weather have forecasted snow, ice, rain and strong winds to batter the UK as the weekend closes and explained the wintry weather will continue into next week. The BBC’s weather forecaster Helen Willets revealed that the UK has returned to wintry conditions as the country is gripped by snow in low lying areas and powerful gales. The BBC presenter said: “Only a few miles away from the coast we are seeing snow starting to settle, that is at low levels.

“It really isn’t very pleasant if you are out and about.

“Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth in Scotland could all see a little bit of snow but there will be several centre meters building up over the hills, the winds are also escalating so it will blow around swell.

“It is clearing away from Northern Ireland but the showers that follow will be wintery and then we have got this rain and hill snow across northern England, northern Wales and across to East Anglia.

“Don’t be surprised if there is snow at lower levels in these areas.

“It is blowing away from the south clearing the hill fog here but that is because the wind is strengthening.

“The wind will be the main feature and there will be showers coming in and temperatures will dip away this afternoon.

“They are minus three or four in northeast Scotland but they will recover to perhaps four or five degrees.

“It is going to feel colder today because of those winds.”

The Met Office issued a yellow snow warning for the whole of Scotland and a yellow snow and ice warning for Wales and Northern England.

They have also issued yellow snow and ice warning for Monday in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Northern England as the intense wintry weather maintains into the new week.

Later on in the new week, a yellow wind warning has been forecasted as the intense winds are set to stay late into next week.
