Icy 700-mile weather bomb sweeps across UK with snow falling along south coast

Brits have once again woken up to snow as a wall of ice is set to sweep across the UK. Snow has already settled in Aberdeen, the Scottish Borders and Newscastle, but today (Thursday, November 30), there are flurries along the south coast.

The Met Office issuing snow and ice yellow alerts for swathes of Scotland, England and Northern Ireland temperatures continue to plummet. Meanwhile, the latest weather maps show a wall of the white stuff moving from Wales to Birmingham over the weekend.

According to the latest Met Office forecast, it could get as cold as -9C in the north tonight and -7C in the south, promising another frost on Friday morning. The forecaster has also warned of more ‘wintry showers’ along the south coast tomorrow as temperatures are not expected to exceed 4C.
