UK weather forecast: Snow and Arctic blast to hit Britain this week with -8C temperatures

AFTER a sunny and warm Easter, Monday saw parts of the UK covered by snow.

And the wintry blast will continue on Tuesday, with temperatures set to plummet below zero once again.

The "Arctic plunge" has largely hit northern places, but the rest of the UK are deemed to not be immune from a sprinkling of snow, with even hail and sleet predicted.

The Met Office have issued weather warnings for most of Scotland, along with all of Northern Ireland and parts of Wales today.

Yet, the cold weather is expected to remain this week with temperatures dropping to -8C.
