Snow, rain, and wind is forecast to batter parts of the UK
Snow, rain, and wind is forecast to sweep across parts of the UK over the coming days, according to the Met Office – while thousands of households are still waiting to be reconnected to power supplies following Storm Arwen.
Around 4,700 homes across northern England and Scotland are still without supply – more than a week after the storm hit on November 26, according to industry body the Energy Networks Association (ENA).
With work still ongoing to restore power, forecasters predict low temperatures of between 4C (39F) and 6C (43F) accompanied by some gale-force winds for the region over the coming days.
The Met Office expects to see “unsettled” weather, with snow in the Cairngorms and Northern Pennines overnight on Saturday before turning drier and less windy into Sunday.
But the temporary relief will end on Monday when a band of rain and snow is expected, along with more wind, in the second half of the day.
From Tuesday, the UK is set to see continued wind, rain, and snow – with a likelihood of more strong winds, although not as strong as Arwen, into Wednesday.
