Forecasters are predicting that large parts of the UK could wake up to heavy snow on Saturday.
The crisp weather is expected to bring up to 6 inches of snow and temperatures of around -14c in parts of Scotland, according to The Weather Outlook.
With temperatures getting more wintery throughout the week, the ‘Scandinavian shiver’ is expected to hit us hardest on Saturday and grind the country to a halt.
The conditions are likely to cause several disruptions to sporting matches and other events held at the weekend.
Age UK have urged elderly people to take further precaution with the snowy weather on the horizon, explaining that colder weather can have a ‘devastating impact’ on the health of older people.
Met Office meteorologists have told us that “Over the weekend we’re going to see further sleet and snow showers coming in from the east – it’s over the Grampians we’re going to see 5cm and 6cm fall”.
Temperatures are set to keep dipping as the week goes on until the snow hits on Saturday and the Met Office are predicting cold conditions for up the three weeks after.
