Brits are bracing for commuter chaos as temperatures plummeted overnight amid the arrival of an arctic blast in the UK. The Met Office issued three yellow weather warnings yesterday which look likely to impact a large number of Brits.

An ice warning is also in place across all four corners of the UK.

The Met Office said: “Icy surfaces are expected to develop following wintry showers leading to some difficult travelling conditions.”

A third weather warning, which suggests snow is blasting the south east, is in place across parts of Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

However, according to MailOnline, heavy rain fell as snow across Dartmoor in the early hours of Monday.

In a forecast update, the UK’s national weather service said: “Rain and hill snow clearing from the far southeast.

“Wintry showers following, mainly across the north but also some windward coasts elsewhere.

“Dry with sunny spells for many inland areas. Cold, particularly in the north.”

The Met Office added: “Wintry showers continuing across northern and northwestern coasts with some rain and hill snow in the far southwest.

“Elsewhere dry and clear. Cold with a widespread frost, severe in places.”

More than 260 flood warnings and alerts have also been issued.
