Snow Showers Developing


A deepening Atlantic low pressure system passes to the north of Scotland today and it's associated cold front is currently sweeping south-eastwards introducing much colder air in from the northwest along with increasingly wintry showers. It is set to remain rather cold well into next week with further wintry showers at times, but there will be day-to-day variations in terms of where and what type of precipitation falls.

This morning is starting off cloudy and mild in many areas with outbreaks of rain pushing south-eastwards across England and Wales. However that colder air is already making itself felt across Scotland and Northern Ireland where heavy and increasingly wintry showers are also breaking out quite widely. The cloud, rain and milder temperatures will gradually clear away from much of England and Wales this morning, clearing the southeast by early afternoon, and then for many areas it will become sunny but colder. Showers will pack into the north and west though, especially across Scotland and Northern Ireland, and these will turn increasingly to snow, even to lower levels, and bring accumulations - please see our Weather Watch for more details on this. Temperatures for today will peak this morning with maximums of 8°C to 10°C towards the south and east but as conditions clear then they will drop throughout the day so that values are close to freezing in the north and west this afternoon. Winds will be an additional feature today too with strong to gale force west/north-westerly winds making it feel much colder.

It remains windy tonight and further sleet and snow showers will push in from the north and west with just about anywhere liable to catch at least a shower or two, but the heaviest and most frequent of the showers will always be towards northern and western Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England where several cm's of snow will accumulate in places bringing a risk of disruption. Temperatures falling down to or just below freezing will also mean that icy surfaces can be expected. Looking ahead to tomorrow and it will be another cold and windy day with a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers in many areas, the showers tending to turn increasingly to rain as we draw in some slightly less cold air.

Colder Weather On Way?



Some of the models have been hinting at colder weather to come next week as the jet stream makes a poor attempt to push to the North of the UK only to be forced South and West of the British Isles during the middle part of the week.

This type of set up will allow low pressure near Iceland to deepen and rapidly push Southeast dragging in colder air from the North with it too. At the moment the time frame we are watching is during Wednesday when a very active cold front could spread Southeast with much colder air behind and widespread wintry showers for many areas.

After this it starts to get a bit more complicated as weather models suggest the cold pool stagnating over the British Isles with frequent wintry showers for Northern and Eastern areas lasting right through to next weekend. As with any Northerly set up it tends to mean coastal areas of Northern, Northeastern and Eastern England and Scotland tend to see snow showers, for many others it means bright and cold with some night frosts to come.

Atlantic Starts to Recover



Certainly not looking anything like as unsettled as it was earlier this month. However, models are now indicating a return to more unsettled conditions (and milder) for many parts of Western Europe over the next week or so.

One area which forecasters are watching closely is the succession of powerful winter storms set to affect the USA over the coming week. As these systems head further South it is likely to nudge the Atlantic jet stream further South too as well as intensify the core speeds which in turn fire the Atlantic back up with wet and windy weather across UK & Ireland.

Early days as far as the weather is concerned, but the main feature is that the weather should turn milder across the British Isles as we see out January.

FORECASTER : MARSH
