Temperatures across the UK are predicted to fall this week, bringing the possibility of snow in some areas. Meteorologists say a cold front will reach Scotland and Northern Ireland on
Wednesday and hit the rest of the UK on Thursday, causing temperatures to fall. The BBC weather centre said showers could turn to snow later in the week, but it was too early to say where this was likely to happen. The Met Office has issued a weather warning for snow from Wednesday. The yellow “be aware” warning initially covers Northern Ireland and much of Scotland, before being extended on Thursday to cover the whole of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, South-West England and east coast as far south as The Wash. Temperatures across the UK are currently above average for January, with some areas even reaching 10C and above. However, the weather front is heading to the UK from the north-west. BBC Weather presenter Carol Kirkwood said “almost anywhere” could see some snow by the end of the week.
