Britain expected to be hit with snow and ice over the weekend

After one of the warmest winters on record in the UK, the weather so far in 2016 has definitely been varied. Storm Jake hits the UK this week, and large parts of Britain have been issued weather warnings, including southern parts of England.

The Met Office have issued yellow weather warnings in places around Wales, England and Scotland for today, Friday and Saturday. A cold front is sweeping in from the Atlantic, and four inches of snow could be expected in parts, with windy conditions expected too.

Cold weather is not unusual at this time of year, and it is caused by an easterly air flow moving in. Combined with the cold front from Atlantic, the cold air will cause snowfall and the possibility of ice on the ground.

Central and East England and Scotland should expect the lowest temperatures and most amount of snow. Over the weekend, temperatures will likely hover between 5°C and 6°C in the north and between 6°C and 8°C in the south.

With the start of March and more signs of spring, it was hoped that it would begin to get warmer, if not stay as wet as February but the cold snap has arrived along with Storm Jake.
