Storm Caroline: Snow warnings across UK as temperatures fall to -5C

The Met Office says northern and western parts of the UK are set to endure another day of “frequent blustery snow and hail showers” and a widespread frost will befall inland areas overnight as we head into the weekend.

The wintry weather should also be more keenly felt in central and southern parts of England on Friday, with the Met Office warning of “significant accumulations” in Wales and the West Midlands.

Snow showers are “expected” in the South West and East Midlands and “possible” in London and the South East.

Temperatures are unlikely to go above 5C and could go as low as -5C across large parts of the UK overnight.

Sky News weather presenter Jo Edwards said: “Storm Caroline not only brought us winds of 93mph yesterday, but it also dragged in some very cold air, which is now flooding south across Europe.

“Through the day, there’s the potential for 10-20cm of snowfall over the higher ground and 1-5cm at lower levels.

“Winds will continue to ease into the evening and overnight, allowing a colder night than last night. Much of the country will be sub-zero so there’ll be a widespread hard frost by morning.”

Wintry conditions will continue into Sunday, with rain turning to snow in many central areas of the UK, and Monday will be windy with rain, sleet and snow.
