United Kingdom climate: Half time period washout with rain, sleet and snow”

Forecasters say two to five cm (20-50mm) of snow could fall on higher ground above, with some predicted to fall on lower ground as well. Maximum temperature 3 °C.

A status yellow snow-ice caution was issued for the whole country, and is due to come into effect just after midnight.

STV weather presenter Sean Batty said: "The freezing level will drop as an area of rain moves east into Saturday night, which could allow a spell of snow to low levels before clearing".

According to Met Éireann, rainfall this afternoon and evening will give a total 24-hour rainfall accumulation for Saturday of between 25 and 35 mm. Rain and strong southerly winds will spread from the west overnight.

Daytime temperatures only 1 to 4 degrees with a wind chill effect from a gusty west to northwest wind. It will clear overnight with wintry showers following and with frost and ice developing.

As if we hadn't had enough snow and ice, now there's wind and rain on the way.

.

Public Health England forecasters have extended a cold weather health alert until Tuesday and today swathes of the country were hit by wind and even some snow.

"A covering of snow as we begin Sunday across the higher grounds of the north of England and central and southern Scotland".

Heavy hail and snow showers are expected to fall on Sunday and continue through until around 3pm on Monday afternoon. Weather forecast very windy which could turn to snowy showers at any point.

"So once we clear this weather front into the north sea, Sunday sees a brisk northwesterly breeze, follow these isobars back and you get to Arctic Canada and the air will be particularly cold during Sunday". Highest temperatures will range from 9°C to 12°C.
