UK forecast: Heavy SNOW to fall across Britain as nordic BIG FREEZE hits Europe

A massive storm could smash the UK with life-threatening winds up to 80mph this weekend.

The blast will sweep in from Scandinavia and bring freezing temperatures and snowfall as it reaches the UK on Friday morning.

The weather system, who is expected to be named Storm Deirdre, has forced the Met Office to issue severe warnings for wind and rain.
