A cold snap is on the way after mild weather

Sky weather producer Joanna Robinson said: "The rest of the weekend looks mild, with temperatures widely reaching 9C to 11C (48F to 52F) again on Sunday after a frost-free start".

Snow in Perth during the Beast from the East in 2018.

"Snowfall will stat mostly across the northern half of the country but there is a chance we could see wintry showers over higher ground further south".

Met forecaster Marco Petagna said: 'On Wednesday we'll see temperatures in rural areas [in the North East] dipping well below freezing.

By Wednesday night the really cold air will have moved in over the United Kingdom from the north.

"Another front moves in from the north on Thursday introducing properly cold air to the country and this is when we expect much colder conditions across the UK".

"Normally at the end of January you would expect a maximum daytime temperature to be around 6C on the coast, in Dundee, or 3C-4C in the Highlands". Unlike the "Beast from the East" previous year, this event is burrowing down through the atmosphere relatively slowly.

Chilly at first, however thickening cloud should mean temperatures rise a little, with low cloud helping limit frost. There will be some snow perhaps with enough for accumulations on the hills. This will lead to a widespread frost into Thursday morning.

Then, on Thursday, a woman walking her dog in the town of Gordon, about an hour north of Barron, spotted Jayme on the street. So Nutter chose to go to the nearby home of Pete and Kristin Kasinkas, who are year-round residents there.

It is possible that a more significant cold wave could occur later in the month and towards early February, with Met Office predictions forecasting a colder than average spell.

And the rain could turn to "a few centimetres" of snow nearly anywhere, particularly across northern and central areas, the Met Office warned.

However the Met Office says the impact of the sudden stratospheric warming has propagated, making another Beast from the East less likely.

Winter is set to arrive in sheffield with a vengeance later this week with the United Kingdom facing a prolonged spell of bitterly cold weather.

It could be the Met Office's finest moment.

He added: "It may be linked to SSW". Mainly dry, although the odd spot of drizzle is possible over the hills where it will turn quite foggy in places.

Heavy snowfall and extreme winter conditions have also left people stranded and cut off in countries including Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria in recent weeks.
