Britons are facing more snow, along with rain and bitter winds, according to the latest warnings from the Met Office. Yellow weather alerts have been extended this week due to the potential for additional freezing weather. 

Heavy rainfall and strong winds will thrash western regions on Thursday with forecasters warning of showers across Northern Ireland and Wales as well as in Greater Manchester and Cumbria in the north-west of England. Glasgow is also set for downpours while the midlands, south-east and south-west of England should largely avoid the onslaught.  

Snow is on the cards for the northern reaches of Britain, with Inverness and the Highlands of Scotland forecast for freezing temparatures the very same day. 

From Friday to Sunday, the weather is likely to be a little erratic and occasionally windy, with colder conditions anticipated to linger in Scotland’s far north.

While most of the nation is expected to experience mild weather on Friday and Saturday, the majority of the UK has been given a yellow warning for freezing conditions for Wednesday and Thursday.

While the weather will continue to be chilly and blustery for the rest of the week, it is expected that additional weather warnings may be issued.

Later in the week, the conditions are also anticipated to become milder.

Met Office chief forecaster Dan Suri said: “An Arctic maritime air mass has reasserted itself from the north, bringing with it another dose of snow and frosty nights for some.

“The second half of the week is predicted to see a shift.

“As we head through the second half of the week, conditions turn milder, wetter and windier from the West.”

It comes after the forecaster issued a yellow weather warning for ice and snow for Northern Ireland on Tuesday morning, with much of the northern and central parts of England also under snow alert.

It warned travellers could face delays by road, bus or train.

The warning stated: “A band of showers, heavy at times, will move eastwards during the morning to give a few hours of rain, sleet and snow before clearing to the east of County Down early this afternoon.

“Some places will see a spell of snow which could lead to temporary accumulations of a few centimetres and difficult travel conditions.”
