The latest map from The Weather Outlook shows that temperatures will be well below freezing throughout the whole of the UK on Thursday morning, and could fall to -15C in the Scottish glens. A rare phenomenon called “thundersnow” is also expected to hit parts of the UK on Thursday, as a band of sleet, snow and hail showers is predicted to disrupt travel and cause power outages. The Met Office has issued three separate yellow snow and ice warnings across Scotland, Northern Ireland and parts of northern England on Thursday and Friday. Met Office spokesperson Grahame Madge explained that “thundersnow”, would be by the difference between the cold weather arriving from the and reaching ground that has been warmed by the unseasonably high temperatures that were recorded over the new year.
