THE Malvern Hills were left looking like a winter wonderland thanks to the recent snow and icy weather.

Members of our Camera Club have captured the hills looking particularly festive over the past few days as the temperature dropped well below zero.

But it doesn’t appear as if this icy landscape will last, as the Met Office is forecasting temperatures to rise over the coming days.

The temperature could reach a high of 13C in Malvern on Monday, according to the Met Office, and is set to stay about zero until at least next Wednesday (December 21).

That doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t see any more snow before Christmas, though.

Paul Gundersen, a chief forecaster at the Met Office, said: “Over the last week, the UK has been held in a northerly airflow bringing cold, sometimes Arctic air, to the UK.

“We will still have this northerly influence to our weather patterns until the weekend, but then the cold conditions will lose exclusive dominance over the UK’s weather patterns and we will move into a regime where relatively mild and relatively cold conditions will vie for supremacy.

“We can expect changeable conditions with colder and milder air not too far away from our shores, but it does seem that the Atlantic ‘has woken up’ compared with recent days and will be a stronger influence, countering any further bouts of extreme cold conditions, although spells of further wintry weather remain possible through the rest of December.”
