Snow Showers In North

  • Snow Showers In North

    Tap here to send in a sky pic from where you are...


After a slightly less cold day yesterday we are expecting colder air to move back down from the north during the next 24 hours as low pressure pulls away to the east allowing northerly winds to take over. The outlook for much of next week remains cold, and whilst there will be plenty of fine and dry weather around, coastal areas exposed to those northerly winds will see frequent snow showers.

This morning will start off bright and chilly in many areas but there are some showery outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow moving south across parts of central and southern England along with Wales. As well as this there are a number of showers around windward coasts in the north and west of Scotland and Northern Ireland, many of the showers turning increasingly wintry with snow falling to lower levels by the afternoon. Elsewhere morning showers will tend to ease and many places will see a lot of dry weather with plenty of bright winter sunshine. However the showers towards northern and eastern Scotland will become frequent and heavy before spreading down into northeast England by this evening. Temperatures today will a touch colder than yesterday with maximums of 2°C to 6°C, coldest in the north, whilst northerly winds will become strong with gales gusting up to 60mph across much of northern Britain.

Wintry showers will continue tonight, mainly around coasts exposed to the northerly winds, but with some making their way further inland at times. Otherwise some clear spells developing will lead to some frost and icy surfaces forming as temperatures fall down to or just below freezing despite the strong winds. Looking ahead to tomorrow and it will be another cold and windy day with a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers most of the showers around the coasts in the north, west and east with many inland areas seeing plenty of fine weather.

February To Start Cold



A cold start to February is on the cards for much of the country as we draw in colder air from the north thanks to low pressure taking up residence to our east whilst out to the west a ridge of high pressure extends northwards from the Azores. This set-up looks like lasting into next week before the ridge of high pressure looks set to move in later in the week bringing some hard frosts.

There will be some snow around too, primarily around coasts exposed to the winds which will become northerly from the weekend onwards, but there is certainly the scope for troughs to develop and move south bringing a risk of snow to more inland locations as well. We urge you to check forecasts daily as the snow risk will change markedly from day to day, and any features that do develop can only be picked up by forecasters at relatively short notice.

One feature we are monitoring though is the approach of an Atlantic low pressure system on Monday which could bring a longer spell of rain, sleet and snow to the west and southwest of the country. The exact track and intensity of this system will be crucial, and will likely not be determined until the weekend. Keep checking the live feed and our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest updates as they happen.

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.
