Temperatures look set to drop by more than 10 degrees from Thursday to Friday, and this change may bring about snowfall.

The Met Office's website states: "The UK will be subject to a cold arctic airflow this weekend, bringing plenty of sunny spells but also some snow showers.

"Any snow showers will be most frequent over northern and western parts, and perhaps the east coast, but at times may become more widespread.

"Strong winds will affect all regions, with gales in exposed coasts in the north and east; feeling very cold in the wind. We will also see a widespread increase in overnight frost and ice.

"This cold and windy weather is likely to stay in place for a time, perhaps with some brief milder interludes in the south, with frontal systems bringing a mix of rain, sleet and snow."
