Weather forecast – Brits to be hit by snow and freezing temperatures later this month

BRITS will shiver through snowfall and freezing temperatures across the country as wintry conditions from the Artic strike.

Freezing air from the Arctic will sweep over the UK in a northwesterly direction at the end of October, bringing wintery weather with it.

Parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland have been highlighted as the places likely to be hit by snow in the latest warning. 

It comes after the country experienced its wettest day since records began when Storm Alex ravaged the country earlier this month.

Saturday October 3 saw more rainfall than any other day since 1891 when the first records were kept, Met Office researchers revealed.

With an average of 1.24 inches of rain across the UK, the total amount of water falling that day would have exceeded the capacity of Loch Ness.
