Return of winter on Merseyside as Arctic air is set to sweep the region


Colder air will spread from the Arctic over the UK next week, bringing a drop in temperatures.

Daytime temperatures will fall below the seasonal average in parts of the country making it feel much more like winter, bringing a risk of ICE, night frosts and freezing fog.

The Met Office say that on Merseyside it’ll feel much colder, with a mix of sunny intervals and a small risk of sleet or snow falling down to lower levels next week, although most of the white stuff is expected to stay over higher ground.

A spokeswoman at the Met Office told Wirral Weather: “Into next week it will be getting colder on Merseyside with small risk of snow falling down to lower levels”

“Areas exposed to a northerly wind might perhaps be more exposed to seeing those showers”

“Temperatures will be as low as 1C at times and the colder weather is expected to last”
