A “roller coaster” weather cycle is due to hit the UK this week, bringing with it snow, rain and freezing temperatures weather forecasts have warned.
Temperatures plunge as Britain braces itself for a cold snap: During Wednesday and Thursday this week the Met Office have predicted a plunge in overnight temperatures of 7C across many parts of the country. Heavy and prolonged rain is also forecast for north-west Scotland on Tuesday bringing flood warnings.
32 flood warnings were in place from Cornwall to Carlisle on Sunday afternoon. Snow is also possible on higher ground in north-west England and Scotland. A meteorologist at the Met Office, Tom Morgan, said “It’s going to be a bit of a roller coaster next week with a spell of unsettled weather on the way.
It will be fairly mild on Monday to Wednesday, especially in the southern regions. It’s a different story for the rest of the UK, which will be considerably colder and wetter. What we will see on Thursday is very windy and severe gales, and even some snow in the mountainous regions of Scotland which could make for very unpleasant conditions.
