Snow showers are hit and miss, therefore even if you live in the risk zone – there’s no guarantee that you will get snow. Further snow showers are likely through the remainder of today across north east Scotland north east England, Lincolnshire and north Norfolk. This evening snow showers will become more widespread in the north east and east, with scattered accumulations forming across much of Yorkshire, the east Midlands and East Anglia. Places like Leeds/Sheffield could see a dusting this evening. Elsewhere it will remain dry.
Up to 15cm may fall on higher ground in places like the north york moors with 1-5cm falling to lower levels across north east England and Lincolnshire. However, due to the showery nature of the snowfall, some places could miss out all together. Certainly one to be aware / prepared for if you are travelling up and down the east coast, mostly Norfolk northwards tonight.
Through the remainder of the day central and western parts will continue on the rather dry but cold theme, however showers in the east will become a little more widespread in land through the evening, more in land parts of Lincolnshire perhaps Nottinghamshire, even as far as West Yorkshire could see some snowfall. Places as far east as Leeds/Bradford and Sheffield may see a dusting of snow on the ground tonight.
With central and western areas remaining dry, another hard frost can be expected with temperatures dipping to -5 or -6°C. There’s the risk of some light snow across parts of south east England this evening, especially on high ground above 150m, however in general this will trend back to rain tomorrow. Tomorrow will be slightly less cold than today, with any wintry showers turning mostly back to rain or sleet away from high ground.
Temperatures overnight tonight will fall like a stone especially in central and western areas where skies will be clear, leading to a hard frost in many areas with temperatures dropping to -6C locally. Icy patches are likely to form especially after day time showers, leading to another hazard. Friday will be a slightly less cold day with showers tending to turn sleety for most away from high ground. The weekend will be slightly milder, mostly dry but quite cloudy. Next week will remain fairly settled, after a mild start temperatures will fall later in the week with further potential for wintry weather.
