UK Weather – Brits hit by first flurry of winter snow as bone chilling temperatures drop to -3C this week | The Sun

SNOW has hit the UK for the first time this winter and there could be more on the way as temperatures plunge this week.

The first flurries hit the Pennines this morning, while a bone-chilling -3C is predicted before the weekend.

Temperatures fell below freezing overnight and, this morning, some were greeted with a snow-dusted landscape as they awoke.

Heavy snow is forecast at times and the Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for the white stuff covering much of Scotland on Wednesday.

Up to 10cm could fall on higher ground in the middle of the week, with disruption to travel possible.

Some parts of northern Scotland could even see four times that by December 17.

The cold snap is reportedly due to a freezing storm known as the 'Troll of Trondheim' sweeping in from Norway.

The area of low pressure will send temperatures tumbling, with most finger-numbing spell between December 10 and 15.

According to WXCharts, snow will engulf the Scottish Highlands through the middle of the week.

Large parts of northern England are also braced for wintry weather, which could even cover the Midlands and Wales by the weekend.

Showers of sleet and snow are expected throughout this period, according to the Met's long range forecasts.

This also predicts "sharp overnight frosts" and rain in areas where the mercury manages to stay above freezing.

The Environment Agency still has three flood alerts in place after a recent period of heavy rainfall.

The forecast for tonight is cloudy for most with showers in the East.

Tomorrow is expected to see some sunny spells but generally colder conditions, before icy temperatures start to take hold.
