SNOW HITS UK




Britain is bracing itself for an arctic set to send temperatures plummeting to as low as -10C after brutal floods hit homes overnight.

Rescue efforts are still underway in Aberdeenshire after dozens of homes were evacuated when the River Don burst its banks last night.

Thousands more people are under threat as the city of Aberdeen braces itself for the swollen Don to flood the streets amid more heavy rainfall.

But all over Britain, people are being warned to brace themselves for temperatures to plunge throughout the week as Britain is blanketed in snow.

Rail passengers experienced delays this morning as sub-zero temperatures as far south as Sussex slowed services with ice on the track.

And the Met Office has warned to expect ice, hale, snow and sleet in the coming months, with the weather expected to get much colder until March.

Over the next few week, temperatures will plunge as low as -10C, and may struggle to get above freezing .

The arctic blast from Scandinavia is already blowing a blizzard on Cumbria, which was devastated by repeated flooding over Christmas and New Year.
