The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for snow and ice in northern England

Strong winds are also expected to make an appearance, with gusts reaching speeds of 60mph expected to hit southern England today and may cause some travel disruption.

A photographer was nearly swept out to sea while trying to take a picture of today’s weather conditions was badly injured when a sign was blown off a building hit him on the head.

The man was sent flying after 70mph winds swept him off his feet in Gorleston, Norfolk.

Ambulance crews arrived and gave him first-aid on the spot before wrapping him in a foil blanket and taking him to hospital.

It will feel colder across the whole country as Arctic air blasts in, sending temperatures tumbling to meagre highs of just 11C.

Tuesday will be cold and rainy with severe gales on coastal areas and high grounds with speeds up to 75mph with Northern Ireland and the Republic the worst affected.

Those gale force winds and rain will continue as they move across England and Wales affecting most parts on Wednesday.

Parts of London have also today seen some rain and hail.

SEVERE WEATHER WARNINGS

Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning for Northern Ireland on Tuesday due to the gales which then covers most of England as well on Wednesday.

Once again gale force winds are expected with speeds of up to 75mph on coastal areas as well as the hills and high ground.

Yorkshire and the Midlands have been hit with heavy snow this morning, while the Queen’s Norfolk estate at Sandringham was hit by a power cut as the wind sent trees crashing across high-voltage cables.

Pictures show snowed-up South Yorkshire this morning, where about 4in of snow fell overnight.

A jet stream from the Atlantic is driving the wintry weather causing problems for thousands.

While northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland will get snow and ice across many parts, southern Wales and England will get blasted by strong winds.

In the South, there will be delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport, and bus and train journeys could take longer.

Devon and Cornwall Police tweeted: “Police receiving exceptional number of calls from right across Devon and Cornwall re fallen trees across roads this morning due to the high winds. Please reduce speed and be vigilant when driving.”

In Southampton, pensioners John and Joan Goodeyhad a tree fall through their roof after strong wind gusts brought it down.

The tree managed to take down some of their back garden’s fence, as well as smash a window.

The Met Office also warns of short-term power loss and for coastal areas to be affected by spray and large waves.
