The UK could be hit with snow this week as temperatures continue to drop. The Met Office has warned that 'conditions across the UK are forecast to turn colder with the prospect of snow for later in the week'.

Temperatures plummeted across Merseyside over the weekend and some residents woke up to frost and ice on Monday and Tuesday morning.

However, David Oliver, a Met Office deputy chief meteorologist, said the possibility of snow is 'far from certain' adding: “Snow in any affected area is unlikely to be anything more than transient and short-lived, but it could lead to small totals and some disruption over a few hours before melting.”

While the Met Office forecast does not currently see snow in Liverpool's near future, BBC Weather warns that 'sleet showers' could hit Merseyside from Tuesday night.

According to BBC Weather: "Tonight (Tuesday) will become cloudier as scattered showers move in from the north, some falling heavy. They will fall as sleet over high ground. A cold night.

"Tomorrow morning will see cloudy periods, bright spells and the odd sleet shower. Turning dry in the late afternoon with sunshine progressing from the north. A cold day."
