The Met Office has said that this weekend will be one of the most miserable conditions the country has faced this year.
The forecast features everything and seems to span all elements – ice, freeze, snow, hail – but significantly leaves out our one favourite condition – SUN.
A yellow weather warning for ice is currently in place – and motorists are being told to allow more time for journeys in large parts of the UK, with temperatures due to drop overnight.
The warning covers much of Scotland and northern and eastern England, and predicts that temperatures could drop as low as -7C tonight, with wintry showers, sleet, snow and even lower temperatures in the coming days and weeks.
The current clear skies we’ve been privvy too could be dangerous as well, allowing wet surfaces to freeze more readily. Classic.
Friday will be doused with rain and drizzle but will remain dry with breezy conditions.
By Sunday we can expect high winds and temperatures to turn colder under clear skies with a widespread and sharp frost. So, be careful if you’re driving over the weekend, folks, and be sure to plan any great distances carefully (or better yet, choose public transport if you can.)
