Britain could be set for the first snow of the season today (December 6) as forecasters predict plunging temperatures and wintry showers.
Snow could fall on high ground in the west of Britain, with the Scottish mountains expected to see several centimetres by the end of the weekend, according to MeteoGroup.
Forecaster Calum MacColl said: “The first snow of the season arrived on Snowdonia and the Lake District last month but parts of the North-West, around the Pennines, and even as far south as the Tors in the South-West could see their first snow on Sunday.
He continued: “Friday will be cold and breezy with some wintry showers in Scotland. Rain in the North-West on Saturday will move South-East, making conditions more wintry again on Sunday”.
