Exact areas -6C snow bomb will blast UK as Met Office warns of 75mph gales

Brits have been told to expect plummeting temperatures of -6C as the snow bomb may drop for some this week with others experiencing dense fogs and wintry 75mph gales.

Forecasters have warned of frigid overnight temperatures this week, with thermometers expected to drop to -6C in the south of the country, though there is some disagreement over whether snow will fall overnight between forecasters.

Those living in towns and cities should expect temperatures to fall to -3C or -4C, while people living in the countryside can expect to see temperatures plummet as far as -6C.

While a Met Office yellow warning of strong winds for Scotland was issued for Wednesday (January 8), and people have been told to expect dense fog amid freezing temperatures, there is no alert in place for snow.

Despite the Met Office not offering a warning, maps from WXCharts show that there could be two or three inches of snow over the coming days in Scotland.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “There isn’t a warning out at the moment given there is a bit of uncertainty still with regards to the extent and density of fog patches. But there might be one issued overnight once we start to see things forming and when we have more of an idea about how things are panning out.

They went on to say that rush hour commuters should expect to see difficult driving conditions in central and southern areas, with a dense fog falling across the UK in the morning.

Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said: "Temperatures are going to drop fairly steeply this evening.

"It’s going to be another frosty one where we’ve got these clear skies across the Midlands, much of Wales, southern England, East Anglia, parts of northern England too, and northern Scotland with some clear skies could see a frost for a time”, he added.
