UK set for first snow of winter as unseasonably warm weather comes to an end

UK set for first snow of winter as unseasonably warm weather comes to an end

One part of the UK might be hit with some snow heading into the weekend.

One part of the UK might be hit with some snow heading into the weekend.

After some very late warm weather to see off an atrocious summer of rain and drizzle, one part of the UK could be hit with what is arguably one of the most exciting things about winter, that obviously being snow.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for parts of England and Wales, where we could see very heavy rain and much cooler weather to welcome us into the winter months…at least it’s doing what we annually expect it to do, unlike summer!

The UK actually recorded the warmest October day in five years last Sunday, but it seems as though we’re saying goodbye to the sunshine for another year now.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Brent Walker, said: “As we head through the second half of this week, cold air will push southwards across the country and there is a risk that showers over mountains of Scotland could turn wintry.

“By the weekend we expect all regions of the UK to be in the cold air mass and overnight frosts are possible.”

That’s right, if you live up north in Scotland, you might be in for a flurry of snow.

We’re not jealous at all…

Spokesman, Grahame Madge, told Sky News that: "On Wednesday night, there may potentially be some frosts and much colder than average conditions, which might be a shock for northern parts of Britain because we've had this relatively warm air across most of the UK.

“We're saying there is a significant rain warning from 9pm on Thursday through to midnight on Friday, and we can expect 20 to 30mm in some places in a couple of hours.”

On the Met Office website, it says: “For most of us it’s usually pretty exciting to see snow in the UK, because it doesn’t happen all that often.

“The reason for this is that we are surrounded by relatively warm seas, which can often keep our temperatures up."

People on X, formerly known as Twitter, have reacted to the news about the frosty seasonal weather.

One person said: “Skipped autumn this year and went straight to winter.”

Another said: “I scraped the ice off my car this morning.

“It’s coming!”

Might be time to get the big coat out, lads.
