THUNDERSNOW is expected to hit Britain in the coming days as an Arctic blast edges closer – bringing with it heavy rain, gale force winds and a risk of flooding.

Met Office forecaster Graham Madge said the weather phenomenon would be caused by a cold front arriving from the west and hitting ground that has been warmed by unseasonable temperatures.

Forecasters said brief power cuts are possible due to lightning strikes, while icy conditions are likely to cause travel disruption – while there are heightened fears of “temporary blizzard conditions” on some roads in higher areas.

Brits have been freezing this weekend with the mercury expected to drop at nighttime and snow falling in the north.

Meanwhile, the Environment Agency has issued 21 flood alerts for the UK, which includes: Earby Beck and Glusburn Beck; Exmoor Rivers; Lower Exe area; Lower River Soar in Leicestershire; Mid Bristol Avon area; Middle Exe area; Rivers Clyst and Culm and their tributaries; Rivers Duddon, Crake and Mill Beck; Severn Vyrnwy confluence; Somerset coast at Porlock Weir; Upper River Tamar and West Somerset Streams.
