Temperatures have continued to plummet in Preston and Lancashire – and there were snow and icy flurries during Tuesday.
The Met Office has updated its forecast for a chilly week ahead.
During Tuesday (25 April) afternoon Szilvester Gajdacs captured footage of icy flakes dropping in London Road.
Large dark clouds have loomed over Beacon Fell and on the horizon for much of the day.
Preston is not due to receive major snowfall with temperatures remaining above freezing throughout the week and then warming up for the Bank Holiday weekend.
The period of low pressure is making the ‘feels like temperature’ much lower than the 9 or 10 degrees it appears to be. The Met Office has the feels like temperature falling to zero overnight and into minus figures throughout Wednesday morning.
Rain is due on Thursday (27 April) before temperatures lift heading into the weekend reaching a high of 14 degrees on the Bank Holiday weekend.
The Met Office has snow warnings in place for Scotland and parts of North East England.
Andy Page, Chief Meteorologist said: “It will certainly feel colder in the wake of the cold front moving south across the UK today, with many northern areas seeing wintry showers even to low levels.”
In the north, showers will bring a mix of sleet, snow and hail, which could be seen even at low levels at times. Some accumulation of snow is likely, particularly at night and at higher elevations. In the south some wintry showers, especially hail, are expected, although lying snow looks unlikely. The cold feel across the UK will be accentuated by a cold northerly wind.
