Weekend Weather Takes A Turn As UK Forecasts Snow, Sleet And Strong Winds

Weekend Weather Takes A Turn As UK Forecasts Snow, Sleet And Strong Winds

Another day, another report of extreme weather heading straight for us - this time it's apparently snow, sleet and strong winds, which are set to hit the UK and send the country into meltdown. Better swap the flip-flops for the bobble hats, people.

The Met Office today issued a yellow weather warning for many areas of the country, as over the next few days we will see a period of wet and windy weather.

The forecast also details spells of snow early on Sunday morning over some central and northwestern parts of the UK, while high winds will affect southern England.

Overall, it's looking like it's going to be a blustery and cold day - a contrast to the warmer weather many southern regions have experienced today.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Dan Suri said: "In what is a windy and blustery weekend with gusts in a few locations already having exceeded 50 mph we can expect a short spell of gusts quiet widely between 50 and 55 mph across southern England early on Sunday.

"Some of the highest gusts then will be in coastal areas of southwest England where in some exposed spots gusts close to 65 mph are possible."

Not only could these strong gusts damage trees and power lines, but they could also cause two of the most hated paired words in the English language: travel disruption. So if you're planning on getting the train at any point tomorrow or for the rest of the week, better keep an eye on social media for any delay notifications.

Running into the rest of the week and it looks like Monday will be a pretty dry and bright day, only to then dip again on Tuesday and Wednesday with more snow, showers and windy weather.

"These strong northwesterly winds will extend to Wales and much of England on Wednesday where a yellow warning for wind has also been issued," added the Met Office.

"Temperatures will remain rather cold and be accentuated by the strength of the wind."

Sorry, folks - Spring's not quite ready to get involved just yet. Looks like winter is coming... again. Better wrap up warm!
