Wintry showers and snow fell in London this morning as footage from bus stops and train stations showed the glacial conditions.

Bone-chilling winds could bring a monster five inches of snow today as three weather warnings for ice are in place for parts of Britain.

Freezing flurries are forecast across the UK – even down to the south coast – as icy -11C gusts take hold.

And after a mild day yesterday, it will feel particularly chilly, with average day-time temperatures of 2C in Scotland, 6C in Wales and Northern Ireland, and 7C in England.

But in rural areas chills as low as -6C will be recorded this morning.

Met Office forecasters warn the weather will get even colder overnight, with “driving” and “relentless” winds making it feel glacial.

It will be most piercing in west London and Hereford where the mercury will plunge to -2C, but winds of 30mph will make it feel a biting -11C, according to a wind chill calculator.

The cold snap has sparked warnings for ice are for northern Scotland and eastern England today, extending to south west England and western Wales tomorrow.

“Icy stretches” are likely to develop with the risk of injury on roads, railways and pavements.

Alex Deakin from the Met Office said: “Wherever we've got stuff falling out of the skies, with temperatures falling to 2C or below freezing, there is the potential for things to be icy.

“These are the temperatures in towns and cities. Rural areas will be well below freezing, -5C or -6C in some spots to start Thursday.”

BBC's weatherman Simon King said this morning: “There's a small area of snow coming through London and South England at the moment but more significant snow showers along in East coastal parts.

SNOWY CAPITAL

“Frosty with some ice for many this morning.”

The Met Office said about the south-west warning: “An area of rain, sleet and snow is expected to move south across much of Wales and parts of western England on Thursday morning.

“With temperatures falling ahead the rain, sleet and snow arriving, some icy stretches are likely to form on frozen ground.

“Whilst some snow will fall, this will be mainly on higher ground, although perhaps to lower levels for a time in the Welsh Marches and parts of the West Country.

“Only small amounts are expected with perhaps 1-2 cm of slushy accumulations in places.”

WXCharts weather maps show up to five inches will fall in the Scottish Highlands, but snow could even fall as far south as Southampton.

Overnight temperatures will hover around freezing further north, rising to highs of just 4C throughout the day.

LONDON FALLING

It will be exceptionally crisp in central Scotland and the Midlands near Buxton and Hartington, Derbyshire, where it may not climb above zero all day.

Met Office meteorologist Claire Nasir said: “Wednesday marks the beginning of meteorological winter, and in fact through the first few days of December we watch as colder air will be interspersed with milder conditions coming in from the west with rain pushing across that colder air and turning to snow on its leading edge.

“Towards the north there will be a widespread frost with the risk of ice, a cold start to the day on Thursday.

“And then all change through Thursday into Friday. A band of cloud and rain will turn to snow on its leading edge, particularly in the north over high grounds, but over lower levels for a time.

“Then we'll see more rain as head into the latter part of Friday and into the weekend, which looks wet and windy yet again, then turning colder yet again through the latter part of the weekend.”
