UK weather forecast: Met Office reveals exact date SNOW to hit but Brits to bask in ‘warmest New Year EVER’ this weekend

THE Met Office has revealed that New Year’s Eve will be hottest on record – but Brits better make the most of it as an Arctic blast could sweep in from NEXT week.

There will be warm air sweeping in from the mid-Atlantic, replacing the cooler northerly winds which are typical for this time of year, say forecasters.

The milder weather means the record for the highest temperature on New Year’s Eve in the UK – 14.8C at Colwyn Bay in North Wales in 2011 – could even be broken. What a way to start the New Year!

However, it may be too soon to put away the winter jackets as freezing temperatures and snow are due to return in January, as a ‘SNOWBOMB’ will hit Britain from as early as next MONDAY, January 3, 2022.

Winter will bite back in the weeks to come after what’s likely to be the warmest New Year’s Eve on record tomorrow.
