Britons are likely to be frozen by the cold temperatures of Christmas Eve, with mercury falling to -1C starting Tuesday. 

A’snowbob,’ according to some reports, is coming from Storm Carrie on December 27, the third and final winter storm which battered the country. 

In the northern part of the country, snowfalls of up to one centimetre could be observed in just an hour after Christmas. 

The country is expected to see low clouds and fog throughout, although some sunshine may be possible in Scotland and Wales.

Met Office spokeswoman said that cloud levels will generally decrease over time. There will also be an increase in overnight fog and frost. Some areas may take longer to clear.  

“Towards the middle, there’s an increasing possibility of windier and more unstable weather in the UK. Rain and possibly snow are possible for certain places.

“Temperatures will be generally near or below average, possibly quite cold in the South, feeling chilly wherever any fog persists and mild locally in the North and Northwest.”

Low cloud and fog are also expected over the entirety of the country although Scotland and Wales may see some sunny spells. Pictured: Wimbledon Common this morning in London
