The freezing weather has arrived thanks to a return of winds from the east, bringing colder conditions to the UK.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders, said: “It will stay bitterly cold with temperatures only reaching 0 °C to 3 °C widely this weekend, with snow showers for many.

“The heaviest snow is expected overnight tonight and tomorrow morning (Sunday) with around 5 – 10cms of snow within the warning areas, with a chance of 15 cm over higher ground.

“The snow could be disruptive in places, perhaps most likely in the southwest of England and southeast Wales and ice is a risk on untreated roads and pavements.

“It will stay bitterly cold and windy throughout Sunday with sunshine”.
