Britain to be blanketed in 17 inches on snow next week as ‘arctic assault’ hits

Days of heavy snow are set to blanket parts of the UK as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for snow across parts of the country.

The forecaster predicted extreme blizzard conditions affecting swathes of Scotland on Saturday and Sunday with possibilities of up to six inches of snow in the hardest hit north-western regions.

A snow weather alert will be in force from 5pm on Saturday until 3pm on Sunday.

The Met Office has even predicted temperatures could plunge to as low as -3C in Dalwhinnie, Scotland, on Monday morning.
