UK weather: Cold blast and more snow in store for some next week

Winds from the Arctic will bring some very cold weather early next week.

There will be some widespread frosts with temperatures as low as -10C (14F) in rural parts of the UK.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for snow and ice in northern Scotland on Sunday and Monday, and Northern Ireland on Monday, with snow possible elsewhere too.

There is some uncertainty due to different weather systems battling for influence on conditions.

Arctic winds will become established across the UK by Sunday, bringing a drop in temperature and widespread overnight frosts.

In both areas covered by its warnings, the Met Office said some roads and railways were likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

A yellow wind warning for Shetland has been issued for Sunday, including the possibility of gusts hitting up to 75mph.

The Met Office says there will likely be delays to road, air and ferry transport in the islands and cautions "some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves".
