If you were given a cushy warm scarf and thick gloves over Christmas, this week’s weather report might well make you glad of it…
The Met Office is warning of heavy snow and freezing temperatures with widespread frost this coming week – with a predicted 4cm of snow over the course of the week too.
Minimum temperatures and ice will mean bitingly cold days and potentially travel mayhem across the nation.
Morning everyone. Rain and hill snow across western Scotland and Northern Ireland, weakening as it moves east, reaching northern England and Wales later. Cloudy and mostly dry ahead of this, showers in the northwest later. https://t.co/lvmvtqQWBN ^Adam pic.twitter.com/x11PkOkq4r

Snow warning have been issued for areas especially in Northern England and Scotland too, with the East Midlands, the North East, South West Scotland and Yorkshire expected to be worst affected.
The freezing weather will continue into the start of next week with showers on Monday turning wintry and falling as a mixture of snow and sleet. Expect icy road if you’re travelling, wrap up warm and set off with plenty of time on your hands, delays are predicted.
Tuesday is expected to be a ‘very cold day’ with a few sunny spells (yay).
Probably best not to take any chances though. Be careful on the roads!
