The first snowfall of the season fell to 10 cm the next day and the strike began in Britain today.
The Met Office, the Western Highlands and Lancashire are expected to experience a yellow alert for snow and ice across Scotland from 6pm on Thursday.
The warning said: “Snowfall and snowfall could disrupt some traffic.”
But as the week progresses the UK’s minimum levels will become sensitive and the icy cold snap will bring the temperature down to -2 degrees on Friday morning.
Added to that simple and heavy drinking fountain, as well as the wind reaching 50 miles per hour, indicating the tragic days to come with the threat of more snowfall next week.
Steve Ramsdale, chief meteorologist at the Met Office, said Yorkshire Dales, Peninsula and Dartmoor even saw snow today.
He told The Sun: “There is also a possibility of a slight drop in snowfall in places later in the week.
“At clear times between wine shower bands, frosts are likely to be associated, and in chronic clean conditions in the north-west of the UK it can be sharp or even intense.
“This stalemate is likely to continue for more time over the weekend with strong winds, heavy rains and magical rain.”
Britain will soon fight to reach close to double digits at any time of the day with a height of about 8C in the south.
The BBC’s Louis Lear says: “These temperatures are a bit disappointing for the first week of December.”
“When you introduce humidity to this mass of cool air over the weekend, we’re going to see some rain, sleet, sleet or snow.”
The meteorologist went to describe the weather on Saturday – it will have a lot of rain – like “washing in a washing machine, spreading around that depression”.
“The sunny drizzle and the cool breeze – so, if you get caught in those showers, it will feel pretty raw.”
