Met Office tells UK to be ready for weekend snow

Have your say

Winter is set to return with a chance that the UK will see snow over the coming days, forecasters claim.

While the past few weeks have seen unseasonably mild weather across the country, temperatures are set to plummet by this weekend.

Snow fell on high ground in Wales, northern parts of England and Scotland yesterday but was not expected to settle, while wintery showers and hail are expected to be more widespread today.

A spokeswoman for the Met Office said there was a chance of snow across the country by early next week as an Atlantic weather system is trying to push in from the west and would hit cold weather in the east.
