On Saturday morning, the Met Office forecast that an Arctic blast would hit a large swath of the UK this weekend, bringing strong winds, snow and ice.It issued five weather warnings, saying there was a chance of power cuts and travel disruption.
Sunday will feel noticeably colder than Saturday, said forecaster Luke Miall. “We will see quite a blast of strong, northerly winds coming down from the Arctic,” said Miall. “It’s going to be very windy but it’s also going to turn much colder.
“That northerly wind is just going to cut straight through, so its real temperature on the thermometer will probably say 4-7C, but when you add on the wind it’s going to feel sub-zero.”
Snow was expected to begin on Saturday evening in northern Scotland, with higher ground accumulating up to 10-15cm (4-6in) and possible blizzards.
So, readers in the UK. How close did the Met Office call it?
