Snow and ice warnings are in place for parts of Scotland and all of England and Wales for Tuesday and Wednesday this week as cold, unsettled conditions bring the chance of disruptive snow to all parts of the UK.
According to the Met Office, a cold air mass is established across the UK, and a low pressure system heading for France will bring snow and wintry weather to many parts of the country as it meets this cold air.
Chief Meteorologist Paul Gundersen said, “As the moist air from a weather system bringing storms to France clashes with the cold air sitting over the UK, it brings the chance of wintry showers and snow disruption to most parts.
“It’s not possible at this stage to be certain where exactly will see the worst impacts of any snow, but people need to be prepared for the possibility of disruption and make sure they check the forecast regularly.
“Areas of higher ground are most likely to see significant snowfall, so it’s particularly important to take extra care when planning and travelling in those places.”
There is the risk of further disruptive snow and ice to parts of the country towards the end of the week, most likely south and central UK.
