Snow showers likely as temperatures hit below freezing

Mr Nicholson said Wednesday (January 11) will bring the start of the cold weather with exposure to the wind feeling below freezing.


He urged farmers to take extra precautions in preparation of snow showers to ensure livestock are safe and the farm does not fall short of supplies through the cold weather.


He said: “Snow showers are likely from Wednesday onward, falling and settling to increasingly low levels, mostly affecting west and north-western areas of Britain and Ireland.


“These may cause local disruption to travel, and ice will be a common hazard. Thunder and lightning is possible from the heavier showers.”



“By Friday, snow showers will be mainly confined to coastal areas exposed to the north-westerly winds, which may include some parts of eastern England,” Mr Nicholson added.


“The weekend will stay cold for most, and further snow is possible as fronts move in from the Atlantic and encounter the cold air. The south-west should turn milder with some rain."
