BRITS could wake up to a white Christmas tomorrow morning as forecasters issue snow and ice warnings.

The Met Office has put large parts of Scotland under yellow weather warnings on Christmas Day and predicted up to 10cm of snow.




Most of the Scottish highlands as well as some lowland areas near Glasgow, Perth and Edinburgh are set to be covered by the white stuff from 9pm tomorrow until 6pm Boxing Day.

Temperatures could fall as low as 1C on Sunday night and meteorologists warned: "Frequent blustery snow showers are likely to cause some travel disruption to higher routes."

The Met Office also suggested those living in affected areas should prepare for power cuts.

Deputy chief meteorologist David Oliver said: “An unsettled Christmas weekend is on the way for many, with those in the north and west seeing the most frequent and the heaviest showers.

"High winds will affect some coasts through the weekend with gales in places, especially the north and west.  

“Christmas Day will be unsettled for many, with the most frequent showers in the northern half of the UK and some more sporadic and mostly lighter showers further south.

"There is some uncertainty about the timing of colder air from the northwest, but it looks like this will introduce some snow showers to the northwest of Scotland late on Christmas Day.” 

For those in central and eastern parts of England, weather conditions across the festive period are set to remain mostly dry.

The beginning of the week saw nine flood warnings and 43 alerts in force across England, with a further seven in Wales.

While the drastic rise in temperature from -17C to 15C a few days ago led to carnage as 30,000 people were affected by burst pipes.

And in Manchester Airport earlier this month passengers were devastated when hundreds of flights were cancelled due to both runways being closed.
