Cold snap warning for drivers

Cold snap warning for drivers Image

We've already had the wet and windy weather; now, a cold snap is due to follow, affecting driving conditions with its wintry blast

With some snow expected across parts of the UK - some areas will see as much as 4cm - temperatures are forecast to drop to as low as minus 5C, with crisp and dry conditions in many parts.

Between two and three cm of snow is expected to fall on higher ground, including the North Yorks Moors, the Pennines and the north-east of Scotland.

Temperatures are expected to fall below zero during the night, leading to frost in most places and a risk of ice on the roads. According to the Met Office, there is a 90% probability of severely icy conditions, which could last right the way through until Sunday afternoon.

Stephen Davenport, of MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said that winter weather is following a front of rain which is moving in a southerly direction. This will mean a mixture of rain, sleet, hail and snow showers.
