BRITS, brace yourselves as the Met Office has issued warnings for ice and a -2C chill this Christmas.
Temperatures are forecast to plunge as low as a freezing -2C in parts of the north and east of England between Christmas Day and December 28.
Two yellow snow warnings has been issued for some upland areas starting from midnight Sunday to midday.
Boxing Day will be “bitingly” cold as strong winds set in – despite highs of 6C in Scotland, 7C in Northern Ireland, 9C in Wales and 11C in England.
The Met Office has said that strong gusts on Boxing Day could bring challenging travel conditions across upland areas, so be careful if you need to drive.
Weather maps show also shows more snow is on the way from December 27, meaning a truly wintry festive period. It will continue until January 2 when warmer air will turn snowfall into rain.
