Some, but not all! Remember you can access all of our updates (short and long range) via the homepage. You can also access some UK Weather Charts. Right then, it’s already a lot colder for 90% of the country away from the far SW of England & Ireland. Tonight will be a cold one with a patchy frost.
Snow? There’ll be significant snowfall for inland areas of Northern Scotland. Places like Aviemore, Braemar and parts of the A9 road could see 5-10cm possibly tonight. There’ll be sporadic showers in the North, especially around coasts, places like the north of Northern Ireland and northern England could see some showers tonight. But unlike northern Scotland the showers further south will be more of a wintry mix with rain, sleet and hail to lower levels and snow on hills. It’s possible that we could see a more organized area of rain, sleet and wet snow push through central and south eastern England early tomorrow morning giving some wet flakes of snow that’ll probably struggle to settle.
UK Snow Risk: tonight and tomorrow.
So away from Scotland, any snow tonight will be “trivial” and wont really be disruptive. Ice may be more of an issue with the low temperatures. 0 to -2C in the countryside and +2 to -1 in towns and cities. Perhaps more significantly tomorrow will be sleet and snow showers running down North Sea facing coasts, in particular the coastal areas of east Yorkshire, eastern Lincolnshire, the Lincs. wolds and parts of Norfolk could actually see some significant snow showers tomorrow. 2-3cm could fall in a few places here. Elsewhere it looks largely dry tomorrow but quite a cold day with highs of just 2C in Scotland, 5C in the South.
Friday and the weekend: Friday sees a very cold start with a widespread frost and icy patches in places. Rain however will spread into Ireland, South West England and Wales later in the day, and as it pushes inland towards the Midlands, parts of Northern England especially on the Pennines, we could see some snow. The forecast for Friday is causing a lot of headaches and uncertainties as various computer models handle the situation differently. So my advice is stay tuned to the forecast. There could be a few cm of snow for places like the Peak District, but this is far from a certainty.
The weekend remains cold but probably becoming more gloomy and dank with some hill fog as opposed to the “clear and cold” weather tomorrow.
Next week: likely to be cold, but how cold is the question.
Next week will probably start off how this week left off. Cold. Feeling wintry to with a significant risk of snow for Northern Hills at first, but there’s a chance that more southern areas and to the south could see some of this later in the week, again this is quite uncertain and there’s a small chance things could become milder, however it is now increasingly likely that the UK will be affected by more “seasonable” weather with wintriness possible.
