Brace yourselves folks as UK weather meteorologists are predicting a blanket of snow to cover the UK within the next 24 hours.

After Storm Bella battered Britain overnight, inches of snow could be ahead.

An arctic blast is reportedly heading our way, with temperatures expect to plunge to or below freezing overnight.

Snow has already reached large areas of Scotland and in Cumbria.

However, it looks like the East and South-west of England, plus Wales, may just miss out on the snow.

Meanwhile, people living in Kent and East Sussex are being warned of further heavy rain.

And while it was a typically cold and wet Christmas Day for millions of Brits – some were lucky enough to enjoy a White Christmas.

Snow fell on Christmas Day in parts of the UK.

It also fell in Suffolk and Humberside, with the Met Office confirming on Twitter:

“Morning everyone, we’ve just had official confirmation that this #Christmas is a white one!

“Leconfield in Humberside reported #snow falling at 5am, and Wattisham in Suffolk also reported recent snow at this time.

“Further updates will be issued as they become available #UKSnow.”
