    An icy Arctic blast will hit the UK next week with snow, fierce winds and heavy rain all forecast to batter these shores.

    A warning has been issued by the Met Office to expect snow in areas of Scotland and Northern regions with temperatures forecast to fall below 0C on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    The continued cold snap means it is also unlikely that the snow will melt during the following days.

    A Met Office spokesperson told The Sun: "There is a bit of snow in showers over the Scottish mountains next week. This will fall in the Cairngorms, in the Highlands and in non-populated areas from the middle of next week.

    "I wouldn't have thought that snow which will fall is likely to melt. And I would think it will be a consistent thing that will stay there throughout now."

    Snow in such regions of Scotland is not unusual at this time of the year, but meteorologists are also predicting that others living in northern areas will see the mercury plummet to freezing point midway through next week.

    Wet and windy conditions, meanwhile, will be blowing in from the west too.

    Brits will be able to enjoy a little calm before the storm, however, today (Saturday, October 8).

    An area of high pressure is set to deliver dry and bright conditions for large parts of England, although Scotland will see cloud and rain.

    Highs of 17C are forecast in both Cardiff and Plymouth, whilst Hull is expected to be 16C, Liverpool 15C and Aberdeen 13C.

    Tomorrow (Sunday, October 9) is anticipated to see conditions take a turn for the worse in the north, where it will be windy as a band of rain is blown over from the west.

    The south, however, is forecast to remain largely dry with bright spells throughout the day.
