UK COULD BE SET FOR COLDEST TEMPERATURE OF THE YEAR Yellow warnings for snow are brought forward
The UK could be set for its coldest temperature of the year so far as yellow warnings for snow across parts of Scotland have been brought forward.
The warnings come as Arctic air moves over Scotland and down towards northern England.
The Met Office said temperatures could drop below -10C (14F) on Monday night on higher ground in northern Scotland, with northerly winds making it feel even colder.
The wintry conditions could lead to up to 10cm of snow on higher ground in Scotland and 5cm at lower levels.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has issued a cold weather alert and has placed northeast England, northwest England and Yorkshire under a level three alert, with the rest of England at level two.
A level three alert means there is a 90% chance of severely cold weather, icy conditions or heavy snow, which could increase the health risk to vulnerable patients, the NHS said.
All areas are under alert until midnight on Thursday.
