Snow is expected to hit the UK again this week with temperatures sinking to as low as -10C.

Northerly winds are expected to bring an arctic blast to the country later this week, leading to more travel disruption.

Tomorrow (Thursday), forecasters are predicting rain and high winds followed by snow showers across the UK.

Joanna Robinson, from Sky News weather centre, said: “From Thursday, there’s a real risk of snow.

“At first, this risk will be greatest in areas exposed to northerly winds.

“Widespread ice will also be an issue, which could obviously lead to travel disruption.

“By Friday and Saturday, we will see temperatures again struggling to get above zero.”

The Met Office is predicting two to four inches of snow across the country, with Scotland expecting to receive as much as eight inches.

Temperatures will fall to -10C in Scotland and -4 to -5 in the rest of the country overnight on Friday.
