BBC Weather forecast: Britain battered by cold front as nation faces dangerous ice

Ms Keith-Lucas blustery and icy conditions will be seen across Britain today as a result of the cold front that made its way towards Britain overnight. The worst of the cold front will be felt in Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern parts of England. In the south of England, there will be a mixture of sunshine and showers with very limited ice. 

Ms Keith-Lucas said: “We have got a reminder of winter today.

“Yesterday the temperatures were in the late teens, but it will feel colder for us today.

“It is a mix of sunshine and showers.

“A chilly wind will bring some ice to contend with.

“Overnight we had a cold front that made its way eastwards across the UK.

“There is lots of ice on our map so it will be quite a blustery feel and you will notice that it is colder than yesterday.”

She continued: “We have got some icy stretches across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“We have got some snow falling over higher ground.

“As we head through the day the snow levels will start to rise.

“Further south it will be sunshine and showers, some of them heavy.

“Temperatures today are about 7 to 11 degrees but if you are exposed to that brisk breeze it will feel colder.”

Temperatures are expected to remain cold for the rest of the week.
