UK weather forecast LIVE: Brits hit with multiple Met Office warnings of ice & snow today as ‘severe frost’ strikes

Next week’s weather forecast: Cold weather to continue

The freezing weather is set to continue into next week as we approach Christmas.

The Met Office said: “Cold weather is expected to continue through at least Sunday and into the beginning of next week, particularly in the north.

“Wintry showers will mainly affect coastal regions, with snow most likely over higher ground but perhaps falling to lower levels at times.

“By contrast, inland areas should see more in the way of fine and dry weather, with widespread frosts locally severe at times.

“While timing is uncertain for now, areas of cloud, rain and stronger winds are increasingly likely to progress into southwestern areas at times, with potential for significant snowfall along the leading edge of such systems.

“Temperatures remaining cold to very cold, with a chance of returning closer to normal across the south later into the period.”
