The UK is about to be hit with another strong Arctic blast, which will bring gale force winds and the possibility of snow.

The Met Office has issued five weather warnings for the last weekend of January, with the chance of power cuts and travel disruption.

Hilly and coastal areas are forecast to experience the strongest winds of up to 70mph.

Forecaster Luke Miall said the weekend would be one of "two halves", with Sunday feeling noticeably colder than Saturday.

He said: "We will see quite a blast of strong, northerly winds coming down from the Arctic.

"It's going to be very windy but it's also going to turn much colder."

He added: "That northerly wind is just going to cut straight through, so its real temperature on the thermometer will probably say 4-7C, but when you add on the wind it's going to feel sub-zero."
