Met Office snow warnings extended as -10C cold weather blast freezes Britain – maps

BBC Weather: Amber warning issued ahead of snow

Met Office snow warnings which covered limited parts of the east coast this week will soon extend inland. Southern England expects further snow alongside parts of the northeast and Scotland in the coming days, with Thursday and Friday to extend freezing conditions for many Brits. The warnings follow the continue chaos caused by travelling system Storm Darcy, which drifted in from the Netherlands earlier this week.

The latest yellow alerts from the Met Office predict the wintry front will persue for another two days.

Two of the latest warnings exclusively cover the east coast today, with new alerts to cover the area and further to the south and west. 

Forecasters have warned of potential disruptions to travel and injuries from snow in three parts of the country.

These will continue until Friday, when the weather is expected to recede northwards.

Forecasters stated the chilly conditions will mean rainy systems will instead command snow. 

Steve Ramsdale, Chief Meteorologist with the Met Office, said temperatures could drop as low as -10C. 

He said: “With cold air across all of the UK any precipitation will fall as snow.

“Snow showers will continue to feed into eastern parts through the week.”

“Many places will see further snow accumulations with a few centimetres likely quite widely.

“Some areas will see larger accumulations with 20 cm or more possible for some.

“Convergence lines, where showers organise into bands, becoming heavy and persistent, are likely to drive these larger accumulations and further warnings are likely to be issued as the locations affected become clearer.

“Overnight temperatures will be notably low through the week, especially in areas with lying snow.

“We can expect to see -10°C as far south as East Anglia later in the week.

“Daytime temperatures will also be cold, only reaching 1 or 2 degrees Celsius for many early in the week.

“With strong winds as well the wind chill will make it feel much colder.”
