    Several areas of the UK are set to be hit by heavy snow over this weekend with the Met Office releasing a yellow weather warning for almost the entire east coast due to a 600-mile snow bomb.

    The full list of affected areas has emerged from the coast of Scotland all the way down to East Anglia and Essex. The warning will be in effect until 10am tomorrow. Weather expert Jim Dale, senior meteorologist at British Weather Services, said: “We remain in the freezer this weekend, with Sunday posing potential snowy headaches, as a frontal trough moves across central parts of the country.

    “There will some relief by the middle of next week, but for now it’s a continued wintry watching brief, with ice, snow and freezing fog all in the mix.”

    As reported by the Birmingham Live, Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page, said: “A low pressure system will bring less cold, but more unsettled weather for southern parts of the UK on Sunday,”

    He went on: "It will be a cloudier day with some rain, but also a chance of snow at first over the Midlands. It will be brighter in the north, but still with a risk of showers in coastal areas. Still feeling cold away from the southwest with temperatures once again in low-single figures.

    “There continues to be some uncertainty over the exact conditions for the start of next week. While, milder air – with some rain and possibly snow – is likely for the southern half of the UK on Monday, the weather models do not agree on how far north this mild air might go. There are several possible solutions.”

    There will be showers during Saturday around western and northern coasts. These could turn wintry over higher ground.

    Scotland has already been hit with disruption this morning as Glasgow Airport announced it has suspended all flights temporarily due to snow.

    The transport hub said teams have been working through the night and it is hoped operations can resume “as soon as possible”.

    “Flight operations are currently suspended due to heavier than forecast snow,” the airport said on X, formerly Twitter.
