Snow is expected to hit parts of Scotland and northern England this weekend with gales and torrential rain forecast further south.

The Met Office has warned of ‘disruptive weather’ with a band of rain heading towards Britain.

The worst of the bad weather will arrive on Sunday, with a brief spell of better conditions before another front brings bad weather conditions on Monday.

Snow is predicted to fall in the north of England and Scotland.

Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson said: 'Showers could start to turn wintry across the north on Sunday as colder Polar maritime air enters the UK.

'There is a lot of uncertainty after Sunday, but it looks like a low coming in off the Atlantic will bring some strong winds and the risk of coastal gales.

'However, there is a chance we could see much more developed feature that will bring the risk of severe gales and wintry conditions to the north of the country.

'This would bring some significant snow to the hills and the risk of wintery showers to low ground."
