Temperatures will be falling during the coming days and overnight lows of -10C are possible even in southern Britain later in the week. The cold period is expected to continue into next week and there will be snow in places. Tomorrow disruptive snow is likely in the northern half of Scotland. Forecast details for Thursday are uncertain, but there is a chance of a covering of snow in Wales as well as parts of southern and central England.


Tuesday starts with scattered showers in eastern England and Scotland where some of them are falling as snow. Elsewhere it is dry and in places there has been a frost.

Through the day showers continue in eastern counties and northern Scotland. In the north they start to turn wintry even at low levels. Scattered showers may also push into northern Wales, but other parts of the UK have a dry day. Sunny periods should form more widely than recently.

Cold. Temperatures range from 2C (36F) in the north to 7C (45F) near to the south coast. See the rain radar for the latest view.
