    London Sees First Snowflakes of the Season With Cold Blast

    The coldest air of the season is blasting through the United Kingdom and Ireland this week.

    A low pressure system and associated cold front swept through the United Kingdom and Ireland earlier this week bringing rounds of wintry showers to many areas through midweek.

    On Wednesday, parts of London saw their first snowflakes of the year as some heavier wintry showers moved through the city.

    There was even some thunder with the strongest of the showers that moved through London and the rest of central England.

    There was no accumulation of snow in London, and most any of the accumulating snowfall that fell through Wednesday was confined to the higher terrain away from the coast.

    London will end the week on a drier note, but the air will remain on the cool side. High temperatures will be held to 8 C (46 F) Friday and Saturday with near-freezing overnight lows.
