Travel could be 'impossible' Monday, NWS warns

Met Office meteorologist Charles Powell warned temperatures could drop even lower than last week as northerly gales blast the UK.

The national forecaster has predicted a fairly dramatic shift in the weather this week across the country with temperatures reaching freezing, frost, and sleet expected in some parts of the country and finally, snow!

"There are chances of snow towards the end of the week, but we're talking about a 30 percent chance or less", he said.

Thursday should be mostly sunny, but rain moves in again Friday, and there is a chance of snow later in the day, the weather service said.

"A much colder air mass will then take charge from Thursday morning".

The cold snap and below average temperatures arrives in time for Santa and a tree lighting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the corner of West Third and Arch streets in Newberry.
