Doncaster could see its first snow of the winter this weekend.

Up to four inches of snow is expected to fall over the weekend as an icy blast hits the country, sending temperatures plunging to -6C.

A bitter Polar chill is forecast to sweep through Britain tomorrow, bringing with it the first wintry showers for the north.

The mercury is expected to drop to -6 tomorrow night, making some parts of the country colder that Moscow.

The Met Office said gales are due from Tuesday in the North and West - meaning blizzards on higher ground.

The forecast added: “On Friday, a covering of snow is expected on ground above 200m in the West and North, including north Wales, north-west England and western Scotland and possibly Dartmoor. 5-10cm could fall in western Scotland, with 1-2cm elsewhere.

“Snow is also expected on Sunday in the same areas and same height. Next midweek sees a repeat for the same areas, with the risk of snow at lower levels at times, but not settling.
