This weekend, gale force winds and heavy rain will batter the UK when temperatures drop below average at -2C.  

From today, snow will be falling in Scotland before moving to the south and becoming more common in England, East Anglia, Wales and the north later in the week.

The Met Office, which has issued yellow weather warnings for Friday and Saturday, said ‘snow is possible almost anywhere away from the far-south’ this weekend.

Travel chaos could result from strong winds gusting up to 60mph across the country on Saturday. This will cause power outages and disruptions to ferries and trains, as well as delays to road and rail journeys. 

Met Office warned that extreme wind can cause damage to bridges, roads and tiles in buildings.

The report added that gusts could reach speeds of 50-60 mph in broad areas, and 70-80 mph in coast locations in particular parts of Scotland or north-east England. 

The website of the meteorologist warns that there is “a slight possibility of damage to buildings such as tiles being blown off roofs and damage to temporary structures like Christmas markets” as well as “a small chance some roads or bridges might close”. 

MailOnline received a statement from the Met Office saying that they could expect blizzard conditions to hit the highlands. Today will see snow and rain, with the possibility of falling as snow through Thursday. Rain could also fall in Northeast Scotland, and the Highlands on Friday. 

“As Friday’s temperature falls, there is a possibility that snow could fall over the Pennines or Wales.

According to the Met Office, extreme winds could cause bridge and road closures as well as tiles being blown from buildings. Below is a graphic showing where the wind will blow.

Temperatures will plummet this weekend with the 'feels like temperature' set to 0C and -2C in Scotland

This weekend, temperatures will drop to freezing in Scotland.

Met Office spokeswoman said that snow could be falling on Scotland’s higher ground. In northern and western Scotland, it will be windy. This cold front lasts through the day and delivers cold temperatures to other parts of UK, with frost everywhere. 

The strong winds are set to affect the majority of the UK, with only a small part of south-east England avoiding a yellow weather warning, and it will be in place until 6pm on Saturday.

He added: ‘The cold front is just lingering over the south at this point. Showers will fall in Northern Scotland, with snow possible on high ground. However, it is unlikely that the storm will settle. 

It is dry most of the time. The rain will move into the northwest in the evening. It’s possible to see some snow in the air, but the rain will quickly change to rain once it reaches Scotland.

According to him, there would be an increase in precipitation on Friday. Yesterday’s weather alerts for strong winds were issued at 9:51 AM yesterday. ‘A low pressure area brings strong winds and heavy rains to northern parts of the UK and spreads to a wider area of the UK through Saturday.’

“We’re seeing heavier rain in Scotland and North England, along with wind. It is possible that snow could fall over the Highlands later in the day, as this is quite common at the end November. 

Later in the evening, wet and windy conditions spread south. It’s possible to see a snowflurry from the south, but this is unlikely to last. The UK is experiencing an increase in wind and rain. It is blowing at 80mph with the highest gusts and windy weather after November’s mild. It is possible for disruption to occur because there are still leaves on the trees.  

Met Office forecaster stated Friday’s weather would be “cold and unsettled” with showers, sometimes longer-lasting rains, and windy. There is also the potential for gales to hit Friday and Saturday. 



The wind warning was released Friday for Northern Ireland, Scotland and almost all of the UK.

According to the BBC, a surge of Icelandic cold air could be seen in the UK during the last 10 days of November. This may continue into December. 

“A second push of Icelandic cold air is forecast for late next week. This will further lower temperatures,” the forecast says.

Temperatures dropping will bring a few rain showers or even some snow showers to the UK. This is mainly for Scotland. Winds are also on the rise as the week goes by.  

It has been a warm November, with temperatures higher than usual, in particular parts of east Scotland. These warmer temperatures are likely to last until Sunday. 

The calm conditions have been cited as one of the reasons why so many migrants are successfully crossing the English Channel from northern France.
